Can anyone tell me where I can find the takeoff and landing configuration for the Alpha Hawker Typhoon. I especially need the flap, speed and landing configuration. I have searched all over the place but can only find the specifications for the aircraft.

Thanks

Hi to all.... I finally found what I was looking for. For those who have the Typhoon and find it a bit troublesome to fly, here is the reference file for FS9. It can be copied, pasted into Winword and then saved as an HTML file so it can be called up while the aircraft is in flight.

ALPHA Hawker Typhoon Procedures

Pilot's Notes:
The Typhoon was a troublesome aircraft from the beginning, and not for novices. The powerful, sophisticated Napier Sabre engine, coupled the enormous 14-foot propeller, created tremendous torque on takeoff and required a smooth, steady hand at all times. This aircraft can lift a lot of ordnance and deliver it with exceptional lethality, but serves best in a ground attack and support role, as its performance at high altitudes is poor.
Aircraft Statistics:
Maximum internal fuel: 170 gallons
Normal takeoff weight: 11,000
Stall, clean (pwr off): 104 mph (11,000 lbs)
Stall, landing (pwr off): 91 mph (11,000 lbs)
