    Default Another nice flying warbird, the Republic XP-72!

    Another warbird that is very stable, predictable and a great performing tail dragger!

    Wonderful presentation!! I had to go to Wikipedia to even know what it is!! The thing that freaked me out was the supercharger mounted behind the pilot driven by a shaft from the engine!!??

    I have a high pressure supercharger in my old race/ now de-tuned to drive on the street car. But the typical high speed supercharger drive shaft never went by where I sit, sat!! A supercharger and a supercharger drive shaft turning about 3x the speed of the engine isn't something I want to share in the cockpit of an aircraft or automobile cockpit with!

    I'm glad that like several of the WWII aircraft, these strange combat related aberrations were mostly out of the picture by the time I started to fly in the Marie Corps in the 60's!! Having said that we had a few weird ones as well.

    I've never been as scared flying anything stateside as when I took a demonstration ride in a Lockeed Rigid Rotor chopper which actually flew by intent, inverted!!!!!!! The theory was if you flew recon missions inverted you'd be better able to observe the enemy territory! Just shoot me!!!! As a chopper guy I'd be more comfortable dealing with what I see out the windscreen!! If you want to look down in a H-34 or a H-46 just place your camera where the external hook is normally placed.

    Another truly great one from Milton and the boys! What an asset they are to the community.

    BTW will the XP-72 run in P3D v4.5? Many of their classics like the Spartan and the D18S do--without a hitch.
