Just flew one of those perfect flights where everything seems to go right, shot down two intruders before swinging back round to the airfield to land.

One section of my flight was coming in to land just as two fighters appeared from nowhere on the deck and opened up on them - right in front of me. One more kill, and the other fighter falls to AAA, so I come back around to land, bit high, bit fast, bit bouncy...

Spit noses over, cartwheels off the runway... pilot jumps out... and runs straight in front of another aircraft http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Kinda funny though:

Haha. I love moments like that. I once created a mission with Stukkas attacking the airbase I was taking off from. I wanted them coming in and dropping their bombs low and fast, so that the mission would start really dramatically. I started it running, fired up my engine and pushed the throttle up. I was flying the Hurricane MK1, so it took a while to start moving. In the meantime the Stukka's came in on their bombing run, the first one dropped his bomb and I discovered that I'd set them too low as the explosion from his bomb destroyed him completely and tore his wingmans wing off, he spun out of control and crashed into the third aircaft my flight of four, destroying him completely and causing my number two to burst into flames. Meanwhile my 'plane had finally started rolling forwards, but the carnage all around me had caused the occupants of the transport column driving along the taxiway of the airport to panic and they were running across the runway of my airfield. I managed to swerve around one of them using my rudder, but hit another. It tore my right wing off and my 'plane swerved violently onto the grass as my number two's 'plane exploded. The last plane in the flight took this as his cue to take off and started travelling along the runway only to tear his landing gear off on the wreckage of the 'planes in front of him and go sliding along the runway on his belly.

Pure magic.

Slight9999 - I don't think there is one as yet; I was playing a mission from Icefire's excellent mission pack, you should be able to find on Netwings
