  1. If that plane is sitting on its wheels, the pilot is standing on something. When we are done discussion the P-38 DM, we should take a look at the Skyhawk's DM. It should not be able to hit a cable, rip off half the wing and keep flying. I can find numerous examples of Cessnas of all types hitting cables and crashing.
  2. "Get the intruder! Destroy the humanoid!"
  3. Based on that link, it sounds like the crews knowing how to use them or not could also be an issue, even if they were present.
  4. This reminded me, I have noticed aircrew disappearing from the cockpit, but looking at your picture again, I don't think that was your point.
  5. This might have been helpful on my morning flight - I popped the wings off my Mustang pulling up from a strafing run. I never had that happen before unless there was combat damage, but I had made quite a few diving attacks and tunnel vision inducing turns, so maybe I had overstressed something. Maybe it chokes you so you really get the sensation of fighting for your life and losing consciousness.
  6. Can you be more specific about which tree we are supposed to hit? I think there was an airworthiness directive about it. 😄
  7. This is fabulous! Did you make the V speed card, or did you find it somewhere?
  8. I accidentally landed at the wrong airfield and tried taxiing over to the right one a couple klicks or so away. I did not have an airplane left when I got there, lol.
  9. Yeah, I was just going to say that - in a 2g turn, you feel 2g pulling you into the seat even if you are banked at 60 degrees, not 1g at a 60 degree angle.
  10. It is interesting that pilots in the target aircraft could feel the concussion through their rudder pedals of the 37mm cannon in the MiG-15 being fired.
  11. The Mighty 8th Museum is doing a presentation on Bodenplotte and the Battle of the Bulge on 28Jan if anyone is in the neighborhood. https://www.mightyeighth.org/events/lunch-chat-battle-of-the-bulge-operation-bodenplotte/
  12. I had a good mission yesterday and came home to an impressive awards ceremony. My pilot received an Air Medal, a Silver Star and Distinguished Service Cross and the Congressional Medal of Honor. 😯 I mean, I love me too but that seems a little excessive, doesn't it? The next day before my pilot's final flight (that ended with a personal revelation about compressibility while trying to bounce a couple of 190s) someone apparently came up to him and said, "You know what goes great with Air Medals? Oak leaves!" That final flight ended with another Air Medal, SS and DSC and of course a grave marker.
  13. I wonder if hosting the campaign related elements client side would boost the reliability of the campaigns so that we don't see those missions that refuse to finish.
