Aircraft

FM-2 Wildcat

The Commemorative Air Force operates several WWII aircraft, including an FM2. In 2020, the CAF repainted their aircraft in the markings of VC-27. The FM2 was then transported to Hawaii to take place in the VJ Day Celebrations marking 75 years since the end of WWII.

Flight Simulations

FM-2 Wildcat and Savo Island


Phil Crowther has created a model of a VC-27 FM-2 and a model of the Savo Island that you can land on. The FM2 has a fairly detailed virtual cockpit (including a virtual pilot). This add-on is designed for Microsoft Flight Simulator X (with the Acceleration upgrade) - which can be ordered as a package. The "FM-2 and Escort Carrier Group" add-on is available for download at AvSim. There is also a small upgrade also available at AvSim.

For those who do not have FSX, Phil Crowther has created a basic flight demonstration program with an FM2. The demonstration includes a virtual cockpit and a model of the Savo Island which you can land on.

Avenger

The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum (MAAM) has created an excellent simulation of the Avenger, including highly detailed virtual cockpit. The MAAM Avenger currently works on Microsoft Flight Simulator 9 (the older version of the Flight Simulator). Phil Crowther has created an up add-on that allows you to use a VC-27 MAAM Avenger in Microsoft Flight Simulator X (with the Acceleration upgrade). You can also land the Avenger on the Savo Island and takeoff using the catapult.
