Bouncy.




The most modern footage is, not surprisingly of Aeronavale Crusaders as it soldiered on until '99 for them. So, the F-8J/F-8E(FN) idea might hold some merit in that the French have some of the most recent experience with the aircraft

If they want to make the French version to draw more people in great. But it's the Vietnam version I want to buy.

There's a post about the similarities between the J and the E(FN) earlier in the thread and seemed like the best approach to satisfy the most.

So, I can't really think of a module I'd rather see in DCS right now, and I'm glad to see Magnitude-3 commit to it because I think there's no way that the F-8 doesn't turn out to be a boatload of fun. I just hope they're going to support it a bit better than they have my other favorite module, which still has a few issues after many years in early access now. Gonna' hold out and hope, though, as the MiG has been getting better in the last few months, and currently has one of the most enjoyable flight models in DCS.

The video with the porpoising was interesting. I guess no propellor to strike so what the hell!

You can see that he has one (left) flap fully down and the other is still up, so with such imbalance it was actually a very good landing and a very dangerous situation for the pilot, which he handled in my opinion very well.
