Quote from: Air21 on September 05, 2017, 01:33:38 PMThe Corsair was so awful to land that it only flew from land bases until very late in the war.

Quote from: rickshaw on September 05, 2017, 07:26:03 PMSpitfires/Seafires were notorious because of their loooong noses in front of the pilot. They developed a "side-slip" approach, with the aircraft nose off-centre to allow the pilot to see the carrier's deck before he straightened up to engage the arrestor wire. I understand the Corsair did similar tricks for the same reason.
