FSX/FS2004 Vought Corsair F4U-1 "Birdcage" The F4U-1 "Birdcage" Corsair was the first in a long line of successful derivatives of the Corsair used in front-line service . Early Corsairs displayed undesirable landing characteristics including the port wing dropping at landing speeds and a tendency to bounce after landing. Ironically, these problems meant that the US Navy initially considered the Corsair unsuitable for Carrier Operations. Early Corsairs were therefore issued to the Marine Corps for land based use. Most of these operations took place on the Solomon Islands. Guadalcanal was the first place for the birdcage canopied Corsairs to see action. GMAX mdl by A.F.Scrub
