In addition, the author has included several of his personal aircraft and aircraft model images in the appendix section. The author addresses the design criterion and development of the United States 2 nd generation fighters of World War II. Today, most, if not all, modern aircraft are designed with a computer, along with flight simulations to address flight characteristics. The "modern" aircraft designed in the late 30's were designed by guys with brush cuts, wing tip shoes, white socks, slide rules and pocket protectors.

Does anyone know what a slide rule is, andhow to use it??

The test pilots that flew their planes for the first time put their fate in the hands of the engineers and the technology available at the time. This publication contains many unknown to me at least fascinating and interesting facts about the United States' 2 nd generation fighters. These are the aircraft that many of us love and enjoy reproducing in modeling form.

Regarding the Corsair, the large propeller 13'-4" diameter required the vertical fin to be offset two degrees to the left, one wing was slightly shorter than the other, and the dihedral of one wing was slightly less.

The Corsair production run was eleven years. I knew about none of this. The "slowest" Corsair was the prototype at mph!! Climb rates for the various aircraft, as well as performance at altitudes are discussed. What makes an aircraft great or not so great? What were some of the flight characteristics?

What modifications were made to improve the design? Read the book to find out. When I read the author's credentials my first thought was "Man, is this going to be dull and boring!!

Upcoming Events

It was not dull and boring at all, but rather quite informative. There is some very interesting information contained within the pages of this publication. The author's writing style is easy to read, and when technical terms are used an explanation is offered to help with the reader understanding of the subject. There is no doubt the author did his homework.

My earlier criticism was the lack of reference photos and line drawings for some of the lesser known or recognized features and details for the aircraft. This current issue includes several of the authors own images from the Wanaka NZ International Air Shows from recent years. Included are many real aircraft and the author's models.

This publication is loaded with very interesting facts and information from cover-to-cover.

Boring and dull? Not at all! Recommended reading for those who are interested in learning more of the technical details about the design, development, attributes and short-comings of the second generation war planes of the United States during World War II this publication offers some interesting reading.

Some of you may have been involved in heated discussions before possibly even involving a brew or two on which was the better plane. Well, this book shows how the engineers saw it.

Here at the "aviator website" we are strongly leaning towards the Corsair, even with all the flaws she "may have" had in the beginning. This is why this book has a place in our private collection as well. Collections: Books. A tiny patch with a powerful message. At only 2" x 2" this PVC morale patch says what we have all been thinking for years!
