Corona NotChallenge

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi to all guys,

something really strange it's happening all around the world, so big that had effect also in flight simulator's world.
So, as italians, we are really involved in this.

Corona it's a costant in our mind, we are sorrounded by this topic during our days, during our nights, during our "eatpasta" moments and also during our time in flight.
We really belive that everything will be ok, but we are living a weird situation.


On our YouTube channel a follower asked us to make a video like "Frecce Tricolori", for support our country in this silly time.

That's why we want to propose you a NotChallenge.
What is this? Easy to explain.


1) It's not a challenge.

2) It's a little way to show our love to the whole community in this difficult moment.

3) Simply, what you have to do it's to record a formation flight with colour of your country (or whatever you want).

4) We tried to do some aereobatic, but it's really not necessary (neither easy!).. We did our best, but we are sure there will be somebody better than us and somebody worst. We really don't care.
Our only goal it's to involve as many others groups as possibile in this videos and, why not, to do a compilation them. We hope it's a simple way for this community to show a little bit of love to everybody, to remeber that we really like to make holes in enemy airplanes, but we are always ready to hug them when needed.

Thanks to all those who want to partecipate,
and a special "Grazie mille" to @JimTM that helped us editing the mission!

I love this idea folks! I'm going to participate with a group that's going to do something similar and I posted about it on Stormbirds. I'd love to see the broader community come together with this little show of solidarity.

If anyone needs a particular map, location, season, time, and plane set to fly a demo with, I can create a mission for them.

At least a couple of groups outside of the IL-2 community are going to do their own version of this too. So it's spreading now! Love to see a few more IL-2 squadrons tackle it too.

Amazing!!

Yesterday we had a little practise with a little new surprise... 

I will upload the video soon!

 

But we also had some problem with smokes!

I can perfectly see mine, but my teammates smoke seems to be basically invisible...

And for them was the same, everybody can just see its own smoke, not others.. also in Replay..

 

Edit:

It's a problem of the new version, they said are already working on this...

Yeah there was a bug there but thankfully it's fixed. My flying group is going to take part as soon as we can get everyone together.

 

Meanwhile, Spudknocker and his group have done a missing man formation in F-14's a response.

 

Loving the cross community support. More to come here!

Brilliant! I would've liked to have seen a bit more of the panoramic as a pose to the close-ups though. I love those sort of acrobatics and you don't really get the best  picture when the camera is real close to the aircraft.

Three of us representing the United States and Canada were able to get together to fly a salute in response. Here is our video!

 

 

We salute everyone dealing with and fighting this terrible situation.

I could have tightened up my flying a bit, but as a New Yorker with family ties to Italy this has hit particularly close to home. I was proud to participate and hope to see a few more from other folks!

Thank you all for the wonderful work and virtual flybys.

 

Happy Easter. Was the first time I have seen my 3 year old granddaughter in person ( was from a distance but at least I saw her) since March 17.

You did great! Thanks for helping to organize this. I don't think Utopioneer got enough credit here as he setup the scenario and hosted the multiplayer server for us to do this on as well as flew in the formation. Great stuff!

Definitely hard for everyone being so separated. I hope that you'll be able to see her again soon!

I asked other groups to take part and now we've got a 66 person formation done by the Grim Reapers. Appreciate the solidarity that they are showing alongside everyone else in all of this.

 

Love to see some more IL-2 groups coming together on this too! If they do be sure to post the links here.

Right there with you man. My little pal is five, haven't gotten a hug from her in a month. But, at least she's healthy and safe. I have another granddaughter due in five weeks. I hope this virus is over soon. I'd sure like to hold her before she walks.

 

Stay safe everyone.
