This is Robert Hawk's repaint of J R Lucariny's FS9 Grumman Wildcat Modified For FSX. The Grumman F4F Wildcat was an American carrier-based fighter aircraft that began service with both the United States Navy and the British Royal Navy (as the Martlet) in 1940. Although first used in combat by the British in Europe, the Wildcat was the only United States Navy or Marine fighter in World War II 1941-42 in the Pacific Theater besides the brief appearance of the F2A Buffalo. With a top speed of 318 mph (512 km/h), the Wildcat was outperformed by the more nimble 331 mph (533 km/h) Mitsubishi Zero, but its ruggedness and tactics such as the Thach Weave resulted in an air combat kill-to-loss ratio of 5.9:1 in 1942 and 6.9:1 for the entire war. Modifications and textures by Mark Rooks of RDG Aircraft. 2d panel. No VC.

This repaint - textures only - is for the L1049H model of the Constellation Group around Manfred Jahn, in both Pax and Cargo Version. CF-NAM was delivered to National Airlines in 1957 as N7134C. It was purchased by Nordair in 1964 together with other Connies. The Connies were used on domestic flights to the North of Canada, but also on cargo charters to Europe. Sold to Canairelief in 1969, they were ferried to Sao Tome off the West African Coast for use on the Biafran Airlift. CF-NAM and CF-NAL are surviving there in derelict condition. The cargo version has a cargo net and different night lighting.
