ICARUSGOLD - CURTISS HAWK 2 ON SALE
Posted by webmaster on April 17 2006 09:14:21
The Curtiss Hawk II represented the end of a lengthy period of a Boeing monopoly on single seat fighter sales to the US Navy. This is not to say that Curtiss products or those of other manufacturers were unsatisfactory or that Boeing had an unethical relationship with US Navy procurement officers since Curtiss had sold a number of two-seaters to the Navy during this period. Ernst Udet, Germany s highest-scoring surviving First World War Ace, one of the world s leading acrobatic pilots, and an aircraft designer, was greatly impressed by Al Williams demonstrations of precision dive-bombing in the Gulfhawk I at the National Air Races, Udet then persuaded the Germany Air Ministry to purchase two Hawk Us for the still-secret Luftwaffe to be used in the study and evaluation of vertical dive-bombing techniques:

CFS2/FS2004/FS2002 version
