About an hour ago, I was headed to work in my police cruiser. I hadnt turned on the police radio yet, or called my dispatcher to catch up on current events. With that in mind...



I had a pretty good day flying. I was in a few dogfight servers and shot down more than I was killed for a change. (That's a fine day believe me!) I was thinking about energy fighting with the Ta-152 when I looked over to my right and saw an airplane sitting in the ditch with some firetrucks around it.

I drove about a mile and thought.. Did I just see that?!? I need to stop daydreaming! I MUST BE PLAYING TOO MUCH IL2!

About another mile I thought, no, you did just see that! So I turned around and, well, sure enough, there was a plane sitting in the bar ditch just off the interstate.

No one was hurt (Great news), and the pilot did an excellent belly landing. He ripped off his wings, but the fusalage was in great shape. The prop was bent (IL2 style). I wonder what happened...

He may have taken a few hits in his fuel tank and was leaking fuel.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I wonder if he got the HUD message... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyways, I just thought I would share that with you. The thoughts that went through my head really made me wonder if I had imagined it or not.. Perhaps I am playing too much IL2! LOL

Glad to hear that the pilot and everyone on the ground was ok. Anytime you can get a crippled plane to the ground without injuring anyone, well I would say thats a great day.

As for playing too much? Heck no! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Its like saying you have "too much fun" or "that girl is too pretty."
