The Felixstowe F2A Flying Boat was developed from the Curtiss H12 ‘Large America’, using basically the same wing and tail unit, but a completely new fuselage designed by Lieutenant Commander John Porte of the Seaplane Experimental Station at Felixstowe in England. Together with a slightly larger version, the F3, it was used in some numbers for patrol work, mainly over the North Sea, in 1917-18. The F2A continued in service in the 1920’s until replaced with Supermarine Southampton's. FSX native re-issue of this classic By Jens B. Kristensen.

Short S.25 Sunderland package for FSX. Model from CFS3/FS9 by Ted Kaniuka, Steve 'Sdbolt', and Shessi. FSX native materials and tags, nice paintwork, L'Azur Seaplane performance mod. It's not a study level model,it is simple, but looks great, and is super FPS slippery; very important when schvitz-hawking a large convoy. Sunderland I, III and IIIA models, or, close enough. Me likee most beaucoup!

The Hughes Aircraft Company H-4 was due to WWII designed as strategic airlift; the biggest flying boat ever proposed as troup transporter. Lack of Aluminium the world hugest aircraft was made almost entirely of birch wood and this made her communly known as "Spruce Goose". It was a joint project of Henry J. Kaiser and Hughes Aircraft Company. By 1944, it had lost its strategic importance. Howard Hughes himself made only one test flight with ground effect in about 10 m/33 feet height and for less than one mile, on Nov.2,1947. In the 80th the "Spruce Goose" was displayed in Long Beach/California under a large dome and next to the former ocean liner "Queen Mary". Since 1993 the "Spruce Goose" can be visited in the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum McMinnville/ Oregon. The model comes with a photorealistic 2D panel and the VC showes the complete cockpit including all the crew desks and equipments and the passenger seats for the invited persons of the test flight. When on water surface, special animations sends a motor yacht to the exit door whilst Howard Hughes waits for the boat. Seventeen FSX cameras showes you the giant from its best sides and let you explore the huge cockpit. FSDS 3.5 model by Erwin Welker
