    Hi Micdrow
    I like these data of aircraft because it is very detail.
    But in this forum I think P-39 may not popular aircraft for many members.
    No reply for these P-39 data still now.

    But I am sure someone like P-39 and they will amazing these data.

    good luck:)

    I think this threads would be usefull to post together the better info about an aircraft. This works great as a quick reference.

    This way is perfectly understandable the need of such posts! It ll be insteresting to have threads about less popular aircraft too containing a compilation of the better sources. An idea is close the topic for comments (only admins post)!

    A quick, quality and clean reference source. :lol:

    Once I acessed a post containing a video of how to fly Aircobra P-39. It was a manual made by USAAF or by Bell factory about the right way to handle the aircraft. Very nice! Since then I did not find it anymore.

    I tried to use the search tools but it was unsucessfull!

    Ive noticed more and more training video's coming on the web, wondering if it wouldnt be a bad idea to add a video training manual area or add them to existing manuals about certain aircraft. hummmm!!!!

    Not a bad idea, it would make searching for data easier.

    You're welcome Ernst. Did you find the quality a liitle lacking. It used to be better but i guess he wants us to pay for the better quality.

    Yeager has said no one could beat a p39 at 100 feet. But no one wants to fight at that altitude.
    Winkle Brown enjoyed flying the airplane for sheer pleasure more than any other piston engine airplane.

    I am trying to compare speed and climb rate performance for P-39, especially for versions deployed in late 1942 and early 1943. I got these data:

    Íîâàÿ ñòðàíèöà 1

    But there is no similar climb performance. I have looked around and I cannot find anything except in WWII Aircraft Performance, but I the data are hard to read. Can anyone post something similar?

    The P-39 is an interesting aircraft. Long due the deserved recognition
    My 1/285 scale aircraft collection features many IL-2s and numerous P-39s with the Red Star

    Greyman,
    Try wwiiaircraftperformance.com. Go to P-38 and scroll to the bottom. Look on the fighter comparison chart for the P-39N. It opened my eye. Speed 397mph. and Climb 4,400fpm. Not too shabby.
