5.0 out of 5 stars If you love vintage warbirds, get this now!!! July 21, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Shockwave Productions has established itself as one of the premiere addon developers for Microsoft Flight Simulator. "WWII Fighters" continues their tradition of delivering both quality and quantity in every release; for your money you get five separate fighter planes, each with a fully functioning cockpit and interesting animations like bomb and drop tank release. The P-47D-20 and P-51D are culled from two of Shockwave's e-commerce packages that each have several variants of these planes; both models have been significantly improved for the "WWII Fighters" release. The Bf-109E and Spitfire Mk.I models appear to have been made FS2004 compatible from Shockwave's "Battle of Britain II: Wings of Victory" game, a makeover of the Rowan's classic. The A6M5 is completely new and is currently unavailable in any other form from the developers at this time.

The software ships with three full-color 'cockpit map' foldout sheets. Each sheet is dedicated to two of the aircraft in the package, one per side, and offers important information. Looking at the P-47 sheet, the user sees: 1) History of the plane; 2) a cockpit guage reference with labels; 3) "Important Things to Know About Your Aircraft"; 4) P47D22 Technical Specifications; 5) Cockpit checklist - controls; 6) Pre-takeoff Check; 7) Engine Starting checklist; 8) Taxi and Takeoff recomendations; 9) After Takeoff checklist; 10) Climb; 11) Cruise Control Schedule; 12) Landing Checklist; 13) Engine Limitations and Characteristics. The other maps are similarly detailed, although not always with the same topics of information. The final page compares the five planes' in-game performance and also explains the process the developers use to create authentic flight models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely magnificent! August 1, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, my qualifications: I'm a 3000 hour commercial flight instructor, aged 40, and I started flying on PC's in 1982, on a green-screen Apple IIe with the original Microsoft Flight Simulator when the "horizon" was a pixel line. Since then I've logged thousands of hours on everything from "Microprose F-19 Stealth Fighter" all the way up to the latest version of "Falcon 4.0" for Windows XP, not to mention plenty of time on Microsoft Flight Simulator X. For whatever it's worth, folks, I know what I'm talking about where PC-based flight sims are concerned.

This latest "Wings of Power" release is an absolute masterpiece. Would I have liked to have seen two of the Me-109's replaced with an Me-262 and something outlandish like a rocket powered Komet? Sure. Would I have like the Mitsubishi Zero to have been a little less buggy? Absolutely.

And those are my only complaints. Now to the good stuff: The flight models, cockpits, sound effects and systems on all of these incredible, magnificent airplanes are the kind of near Amish-quality hand craftsmanship that we almost never see on PC-based flight sims. The P-51D Mustang especially is one of the most magnificently modeled aircraft ever made available to the PC pilot, and the truth is that for those of you who love the Mustang like I do, this is probably the best P-51 that will ever be available to you during your lifetime unless you have a million dollars and an unlimited fuel card.

If you are a PC pilot, you know (unless you've been hiding under a rock,) that the golden age of PC flight is pretty much over. Almost all of the great sims of the past, like Jane's WWII Fighters, USNF '97, Chuck Yeager's Air Combat, F-117A Stealth Fighter, F-22 Raptor, etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Problems not Correctible March 7, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Having thoroughly enjoyed Wings of Power, WWII Bombers, I purchased this product to use with FS 2004. Immediately two issues arose. First, there is no cockpit in standard view, only in virtual view. Secondly and more disturbing, the P-51 (almost everyone's favorite WWII fighter) is unflyable in all but straight and level flight. As soon as you start maneuvers, it stalls and spins out of control. We certainly would not have won the war this way. And finally, Shockwave apparently has ignored the program as there are no correction patches available for this problem.
Don't waste your money!
