FSX – Vought F8 Crusader Update. This is an update of the Alphasim F-8 Crusader originally modified by Bob Chicilo (F8CRUSADERUPFSX.ZIP). This config file adds the launch assistance – launch bar pivot and launch bar lug positions – to the aircraft.cfg file in order to allow the aircraft to land and launch from equiped aircraft carriers. Just copy the file to your ALPHA F8 Crusader – modified by Bob Chicilo- and overwrite when requested. By Anthony Eades.
