View Full Version : HardBall's Aircraft Viewer for PF - Info Required

01-19-2005, 04:39 PM
Hi all,
I'm steadily getting through the data for the latest version of my aircraft viewer tool. I've run across a snag with the FAA Corsairs, though.

The Corsair Mk.II and IV had eight inches cut off the wingtips to allow them to fit into the smaller British carriers, but I can't find any information on what the reduced wing area should be. Does anyone know what it is?

Or, would it be possible to calculate the new wing area somehow? Any ideas?

Standard F4-U1 Corsair wing span: 12.49 m, wing area: 29.17 m

FAA Corsair Mk.II & IV wing span: 12.08 m, wing area: ????

Thanks in advance

28.21 if the ratio stays the same
