A number of times I have gotten kills in unconventional ways. Shooting those doing ground attack while still taxying, or dropping my bomb load while low to the ground and blowing up a pursuer a half a kilo back.

Once on Aviar's server, Aviar being one of the most ruthless ground attackers online, I asked him why he had not shot me as he was strafing my base while I was taking off. He told me it was because he liked me, and he was turning over a new leaf. This was the new gentler Aviar or some such ****. Well I think I fixed his attitude. After a sortie I was landing. I new he was behind me and could hear him coming up fast. Right when my tail touched down he flew over without firing a shot. When I saw him fly in front of the crosshairs I pulled the trigger and blew him out of the sky. He went back to being the old Av we all know and love quickly after that.

Once ASH-HOUSWARES, another great HL ace, was on my tail when i was in a 190 attacking aaa at his base. I timed it just right. I dropped a sc500 on a AAA installation, took it out and caught ASH with the full force of the blast. He said his screen just went instantly black, he did not even know what happened. But I will bet now he is a bit more wary about following planes carrying bombs close to the ground.

And of course there is also kind of a kamikaze move: When you are being straffed and pinned down at your base by a persistant ground attack artist, load up a nice big bomb with no little or no delay. When they make thier run on you drop the bomb where you are sitting and it will usually take them out as their pass takes them low over your plane. I have also just taxied and pivoted my plane around on the ground and used it as a makeshift, manned AAA installation.

Any that are not here? There must be a lot of good stories out there!S!

Oh you don't wanna hear this one!

Fine I'll tell you anyway.

This was offline in QMB, but I thought it would be a fun thing to try anyway. I set an enemy TB-3 with no ammo, and put myself in a TB-3 with no ammo. (How's this gonna work, you say?) I positioned my TB-3 right on top of his, and hit the "Control E" command.

Without hesitation my courageous TB-3 crew "boarded the other TB-3, by jumping out of mine. Unfortunately their bodies were cut to pieces by the enemy's props, but I managed to knock off a few engines. My TB-3 hit the water after I had bailed out to board the enemy plane, but I missed, so I was the sole survivor of my crew.

The enemy TB-3 crashed into the ground after losing 3 of its 4 engines due to the actions of my brave crew. I reccommended each of them for the HSU and Order of Lenin. They were turned down and I was court martialed for destroying a plane of Mother Russia's needlessly. I was found innocent, but my comrades still refer to me as "Admiral Boosh" whenever I walk past....


Another funny story. I was flying online in a server that only had open cockpit planes. The reason? They were doing a test. People tried to get as close as they could to kill the pilot with their props. DAMN that was scary! (This was WAAAAY back)

Good one Boosh. I forgot bombers. It is always great fun to shoot the heck out of attacking fighters by jumping to the different gunner positions, and then hearing them scream bloody murder about "AI gunners" being too good. It was me!

My most memorable oddball kill was one time I was in a P11c and managed to drop those tiny bombs onto the wings of a TB-3 just taking off. Everything went perfect, the gunners missed me and I pulled it off perfect. It was so perfect it was unbelievable. It seemed easy but I tried to repeat it and never did. I guess it was just a good lucky moment.

Well I was beggining to think that I was the only one around here with crazy ideas... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. That thing about blowing up a pursuer with SC500 seems to me like an excellent idea. Will try http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I'll post one too: while flying a campaign mission my airfield was strafed by enemy fighters even before I take off, they hit one of LaGG's in my squadron. Then AAA take care of them and we continue with our mission. After about 1h10min mission ended and I was able to take a look at my aifield. That AIguy in strucked LaGG has lost his wing and he was helplessly circling around airfield tower. For a hour and ten minutes. I've landed and ended the mission and he's still circling without his wing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

i remember on warclouds i was ground pounding in the bf 110, and went round for one pass too many, as i pulled up i was getting shot at... i skip to the gunner position and find 3 allied planes (a stang and 2 spits) lined up neatly behind me) besides thinking 'you pituary ******s, how about one of you go on my tail and the other two fly cover? so anyway i showed them why they should be doing that, and sprayed away with the tail gun... the mustangs engine soon secumbed (as did one of mine!) and got a spit smoking badly enough that he split off... the final spit now had a p-38 behind him, who obviously hadnt learned from watching the other two, and the p-38's attempt to shoot around the spit took care of my 3rd attacker! so now i have a p-38 on my tail, a wounded gunner, 1 engine and a hole in the left wing. just as i was thinking 'time to say my prayers or crash land' a fw 190 on my side bounced the p-38 and ripped him to pieces. after thanking my saviour, he escorted me home! (from a nice altitude as well)

you will be pleased to hear that my plane just about limped home, and landed, sans engines (my one good one ran out of juice on final approach... fortunately i was making a stupidly steep approach, which with no engine turned out about right. i like to think my gunner got a medal for that while he was in hospital. a mixture of enemy stupidity, fluked rear gunnery, a savvy 190 pilot and a healthy helping of luck.


i love this game

Ah, yes, it's a lot of fun Jumoschwanz, but have you ever boarded an enemy bomber in mid-flight like i did? Try it, it's hilarious!

Well, the most funny "kill", was actually a nice mistake by my pursuer:

I was on a historical-settings server, Brewsters against I16s. I shot down a bandit with my Brewster, but just after he began tumbling down, I checked six, just to see some tracers passing me.
I pushed my nose towards the dirt, hoping the I16-pilot would kill his engine. He didn't, but it was still worth a try http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Then I tried to turn and shake him off, but he was in a perfect position and I had allready a hole in my wing. So I flew NOE and pushed up, when I felt I almost hit a forest. I did this 3 times, then I heared a loud crash behind me - he missed the point to pull up and there he went http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Was quite funny, though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif


Another quite amusing kill was, when someone tried to vulch me. I saw him quite early and turned on runway into his direction. I fired as he got closer and he was obviously so surprised, he pulled up and missed.
I didn't - he blew up, scattering his parts over the runway. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

A long time ago I was taking out AAA in an IL-2 at an enemy base online. I used rockets on the first pass, but didn't get a chance to drop the bombs so I extended and went around for a second. As I lined up on one of the AAA nests, I saw blue tracers around me. I was at 150 meters, about a click from the AAA nest, so I dove to NOE hoping to throw off the 109 just long enough to make the bomb run. Released right on target and got the heck out of there. Checking the replay later I discovered why that 109 never came back. He happened to be directly over the AAA at a dozen meters altitude when the bomb went off.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Another amusing situation was when I was in a Stuka pursued by two unidentified enemy. The reason I couldn't identify them was that the second I switched to the rear gunner to fend them off I saw nothing but fire and airplane pieces chasing me. Apparently one had flown into the other. I continued on my merry way and landed.

I was flying in an IL2 against ground targets using Ptab's. On the way to target My flight was jumped by IAR's. The IAR's destroyed two IL2s and were coming after me and my flight lead. As they approached on my six, my rear gunner let them have a lil before he was killed, I started rolling and pitching to try and get them off of me but that didn't work.
Seeing that they were prolly gonna shoot me down, I released the Ptabs after getting the IAR pilot(human) to dive below me. Let me say that he crapped his pants. LMAO. I din't hit him and he did shoot me down but I never laughed so much in my life. He said all he could see were pieces of my plane falling towards him but noone was shootin me. He realized what they were and barely missed getting hit.

Last time he flew under me again.

This was an offline one, but had set up a ground pounder in an IL2 to take out a bridge on the mountain map, with a load of AI and 2 109's. Am tonking down the valley and can hear my gunner giving it laldie behind then take a load of hits from those evil blue tracers, get the message my gunner is dead. Rudder is u/s by this point but the next thing I know there's an empty 109 streaming past with no canopy... When I play the track back later it turns out he shot my rudder off which he then promptly flies straight into, removing the outer third of his right wing. Even tho it was only AI I thought it was bloody hilarious and served the bugger right for tarnishing my paint...

This one happened offline. I was in a D9 at 5000 m
going up against two Yak-3. Took one out quickly
but the other was stubborn so I dive down to ground-level
racing home at 700 kph about five meters off the ground
and I see a bridge. Just for kicks I go under the bridge
and then climb to eight or ten meters. Ten seconds
later I get the "enemy plane destroyed" message.
I switch to externals and see the bridge wrecked
and a fading explosion.

...the other night I was flying on a server that hosted the Desert map with the two islands.I decided to do some ground pounding/saturation bombing so I loaded an FAB-500 on a 190.Headed toward the red base after gaining some altitude and was jumped by two P-51's and a SPitfire.The '51's started bullet-hosing me from too far out which warned me that they were behind me so I dropped my nose to get some speed up..pulled up at 300 meters or so and went vertical.The three planes behind me followed so I released the FAB-500 (set at 0sec delay). Took at the Spit and one '51...the other hauled it the other direction and I made a succesful RTB.

Check this,
I was in a P47-D10 , my favorite. Full load for a base blast after another good sortie , I think it was on Porky's lounge , but can't be too sure. See , I'm an alcoholic.OK, those guys , waiting for AAA respawn , mount themselves in TB's , the mobile AA. Just to intimidate any ground attackers. And they were right. Here comes one , taxiing for T/O. Gunners aware, they start shooting and downed another P-47 coming long for a strafe run. Here I come in , perfectly aligned with the runway for my turn on shooting the bastard. In the exact moment I was pulling the trigger all gunners gave me their usual welcome, black, yellow, white smoke , you name it! Sight broken.And I didn't even touch the bastige! Hurry up for home , maybe I can make it.Got the greeting chat message : That will teach you next time you @#$@%#$^!. Two seconds after a huge blast I almost fell off my chair.Chat message : XXXXXX was blown by Zayets. WTF?????!!!! In fact what happened , in my hurry to get a place on the server I loaded the wrong profile! Loaded my Falcon 4 profile! And instead of firing all guns as designated , I have dropped the eggs!
Of course , I didn't made it to the base , but do you think that affected my way of living??? Not at all! In fact this is one of my favorite things ever happened to me online.

Other time I was flying Oleg , that's the name of my Sturmo , an early version with those beautiful 12.7mm's. And here comes this Bf109E buzzing me and killing my gunner. Here he is , in a full swing for the fatal blow. I pull the stick so hard that Oleg stalls and drop his nose. I recover very quickly , in fact I was amazed that I have stalled the Sturmo and right in front of my nose is this guy , pulling up to gain again his altitude. An extremely short burst , I think only 2 bullets went of because I didn't even though I will touch him and he's in flame! Before he touched the griund he disconnected.I think he was pi$$ed because a Sturmo killed him http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And there are more , the story when I have bought my new sound card and take it first time for a whirl , when I stalled the Jug and pursuer run into me , many , many things I remember with pleasure http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

this is probably a bit OT [bf1942:SWoWW2] but the funniest kill i ever saw was shooting some guy on a motorbike at high speed with a sherman who subsequently flew through the air and hit a panzer that exploded (i think it must have been a satchel charge) the guy reversed his direction and flew the other way it was chuffin hillarious

bringing it back on topic this one time (at band camp) i was flying a il2 torpedo type i was planning to blow up this bridge while a column crossed it after a couple of failed attempts (inf ammo) i climbed to altitude and proceded to carpet bomb (with torpedoes) the column at the next bridge there was this mass of smoke and no bridge there was this single tank with its turret spinning like they do in red alert when they get stuck that had managed to get across which at the time at least amused me so i let him go.

1) TB-3 inbound on home base, I'm out of ammo but I already killed all his gunners. What do I do? Land on him! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I lowered my gear, gave full flaps and landed on his left wing. It immediatly snapped off along with my wheels. But I can fly without landing gear, he can't fly without his wing. I made a belly landing back at base and recieved credit for my uncoventional TB-3 kill.

Two actually. The first I did not announce my attack run in a A5 FW I believe as I "now" try to do, niether had any other....Made an awsome pass, straffing the column of vehicles and dropping my bombs with a delay right on the fuel trucks.

Trouble was, three other of my team made passes from intersecting directions same time....My frag, fuel trucks and each others parts taking them all out......Good day to be allied.

Next was on a DF server, always taking the side needing the help, this day 3:1 odds as was the DF I couldn't avoid. So as an attempt to escape and get my attackers to stall, hit the manual PP, hit the nitrous, hit 110% and went toward the moon......Too little too late as 4 swarmed up behind me and took a wing off........So out I bail them all still firing, However.........

Be it they shot each other or my pieces got them or each others I'll never know....yet I saw each one either blow up fully just slightly 1 after the other...not one able to bail....

4 for 1 and walk away?....I'd call that a good kill http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I was once flying online in a server that allowed AI aircraft to be flyable. I picked a Ju52 (if that's the one I'm thinking of - 3 engined transport plane, one engine in the nose, German), loaded with 16 paratroopers - I felt like messing abouthttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

There were a few vulchers messing up the base, but I managed to get into the air. Before long, however, one spotted me and started to make life difficult. I was still pretty low down, going slow, so I couldn't really avoid him. I could see he was going to get me, so I decided to at least try to save my paratroops but letting them bail out. The 109 was hot on my tail, and managed to crash into one of the paratroops trailing out behind me, ripping a wing off (and presumably doing nasty things to the para while he was at it). I was laughing my head off as he spiraled into the ground below...

On one occation i was flying along in my 109 when a Yak 3 Dove down on me (i was at 5000m). And he kills my engine. Well him being the gentleman that he was decided instead of shooting my wing off he will buzz my stricken plane as i was gliding to a friendly airfield. Well as luck would have it he buzzed me in the wrong place and i put a well aimed (Lucky) 30mm into his plane and BOOM there he goes.


Then there was the wow how did that happen kill. Once again i was in my 109 when i got my tail shot off. I started doing a flat spin. As i was in this spin i squeezed the trigger and with another well placed shot (beyond luck) i hit the enemy plane with a 30mm projectile.

And as far as TB3s are concerned nothing takes em out better the a P-38 with HVARS to take em down they make a very nice explosion when they hit

It was in the original Il-2, just after the I-16 became available. I was testing the I-16 on a few Heinkels 111, in the QMB. I shot down three out of four but, I only damaged the last one and was out of ammo.

DAMN I thought... The Heinkel was allready full of holes. But, it still looked pretty stable, in level flight. So, then I thought: "what the heck, the I-16 looks sturdy enough, let's just try it.." For some odd reason, I remembered reading about a F4U Corsair, being out of ammo, sawing the tail of an enemy aircraft and still landed safely.

So, my first attempt was to fly in perfect close formation, same altitude, same heading and same speed. That worked. Then I gently increased throttle to close the distance. I choose position, EXACTLY behind the Heinkel. I was slowly advancing, keeping the plane at approx the same altitude. Remember, the I-16 has no trimming! I didn't use time compression but, made good use of the outside view. I was very concentrated to keep the plane directly behind the Heinkel.

Slowly, VERY slowly, I was gaining. The very last few meters where travelled a bit too quick to my liking... And then... My prop hit the tail of the He-111. A moment later, the whole rear part of his fuselage fell off!! And the most amazing part, I WAS STIIL IN FULL CONTROL OF MY AIRCRAFT!!!!!

Okay, it didn't flew so great anymore but, everything still worked and I made a perfect landing. I was so amazed that I actually did it, I forgot to save the track. I have tried a few times to recreate the event to show my friends the track but, I never managed to do the same thing with the same result.

I can only add the same thing about the P-47s, I was carring a full load(rockets and 3 bombs) in the 161st_Dedicated a while back. Flew full throttle around the enemy base to get to the target and had an enemy spot me. I managed to drop my 250s before he got on my six, I turned on my mirror and waited till he got .5 away from me and dropped my 500lb bomb. It was set to a 2 sec delay and when it blew, BOOOOM he desintigrated. Unfortunatley for me I got shot down by another enemy from another direction, but I think the guy I killed was really p1ssed, he just joined the game and went after me and after he was killed he disconnected.

Right after I purchased FB I was flying a campaing as a 109. I had gotten to a a fight with those pesky I-153 biplanes. I was not having any luck hitting any of the 4 biplanes I went to climb and leave the battle area and reailized one was diving in on me once he was in range I start firing and so does he I figure once of us should go down any second. We get way to close I realize he is going to ram me so I start to break right to get away just as he blows up. I have to fly through the debris cloud but I am excited cause I got one only to realize my plane was flying very poorly. I went external and found chunks of my fuselage and wing missing. The damage was severe enough I had to ditch. I always wonder who won that fight?

One time on Warclouds I was vulched right after spawn by a FW190 in my P38. So I waited a few seconds und respawned. I saw the FW190 again diving in my direction. I just wanted to hit refly until i realised that I had 10 little rockets sitting under my wing. So i rolled the plane in his direction and fired all of them when he was 100-200m away. He exploded in one big fireball. His debris ripped my wing of and my plane was going in circles on the ground, but I laughed for a few minutes.

As soon as i got AEP i started messing about with the J8 (gladiator) trying to recreate some of the Norweigan battles. Set 4 J8s vs 4 ace level bf 110Cs at about 3000m. Fight started badly as my wingman got vaped in a head to head, but i turned tight into one 110, got him smoking in both engines and then found another 110 on my six. Reversal then spiral dive down to the deck. Found myself buzzing over a river coming up to a town with a serise of bridges, 110 on my tail tracers spraying everywhere. Kept very low. popped up over the first bridge, 110 still there. Under the second one, 110 still there. Under the third one, 110 STILL there. Damn, so i looped as soon as i got out from under the third bridge, dove back for the middle bridge and kept low back under the first. 110 pilot finally tries to repeat my manouver and dies crashing into the uper structure of the bridge. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Sometimes when you die, you keep firing, well on this occasion as my plane tumbled still firing, it turned on my attacker scored a hit with the cannon smack bang in the engine...... One Mustang went down.

Anytime a P-38 driver pulls up sharply while being chased and gets his top profile hosed.

But seriously... This one was online, a coop defending a column against IL-2s. It was a good mission, the intercept point was calculated so that the Sturmos would have to attack in a valley. I was top cover in a 190A5 when I saw IL-2s passing below me. I did a wingover and began my first attack pass. I was moving too fast for accurate gunnery, but I did manage to get the low point of my attack run to be right behind an IL-2. I let off a snapshot (very short burst) and began a climbing turn to the right. The "Enemy aircraft destroyed" message pops up ! I was so shocked I held the wingover too long and slammed into the side of the valley. I laughed for five minutes. The external camera showed a column of smoke on the valley side and an IL-2 falling in flames and trailing pieces.

I'm also particularly fond of another snapshot. I was in an IL-2 (something with the 37mm) and a Red plane flew past after shooting at me. We extended straight and level - and you can all see where this is going - so I gave him a single round from each cannon to let him know I was still back here. I hit his right wingroot, the wing just folded up and he fell out of the sky.

Nothing unusual, no torpedoing Gothas, but two things *I* laughed at.

Perhaps not as quirky as some, but....

I fly purely offline (I spend too much time on this game as it is), and as a Noob was getting the hang of things in the B-239 Campaign. About the 7th mission or so is where you and another Brewster are scrambled at night to attack three PE-8s coming in with the intention of bombing your field.

I got into position above and about 250 metres behind the v formation of three bombers, jinking to avoid the pretty green lights that were slashing past my wings.

To this day I don't know what happened, but I lined up the centre bomber, aiming just behind the cockpit - touched the gun buttons and....

The entire sky exploded.

FPS went to the dogs, I managed to hit pause and saw that all three bombers were shattered into burning parts, trailing smoke and falling from the sky.

I am not sure what happened, but can only assume that I hit the fuel tanks or bomb load of the central bomber. When he went up he must have taken his friends with him. That will teach them to fly in a tight formation.

Of course this is before I had figured out how to do screenshots or save tracks.....

And the worst thing of all ? I was only credited with one kill. Good for a laugh though

It was quite humerous but certainly the most unconventional way to take down another aircraft:

I was flying along in my P38, lined up and made my attack on a tank column, fired off some HVARS but was going a little to fast to drop the bombs accuratly. Then I spy a Spitfire trying to catch up with me. I increased the throttle and headed as fast as possible home. The Spitfire was still following so to increase my speed I dropped the 2 1000lbs bombs that had a 4.5 second fuse. I drop them, look back and 4.5 seconds later the bombs go off as the Spitfire, 100 meters of the ground gets caught in the explosion as it travelled over them. I see out my window a wing flying it of then in the chat 'WTF!' from the pilot of the Spitfire.

Yeah my favorite is pounding a good bud as he's landing...and I'm giving him the play by play on TS!
Yes, the bastids return the favor, and it grinds me to no end to get vulched...but that makes it that much sweeter the next pounding given.
Not all the time, I'd say once every three times online if I'm lucky- they aren't dumb enough to land under fire and then whine "vulcher"
If you're under fire, flaps up, tuck the wheels in and scoot!!!!!!

TB-3's are great for the number of bombs you can carry and have them release just a couple at a time. I'll give the bombs a 3 second fuse delay and fly along about 100 meters off the ground hoping some eager beaver wants to fly up my six for an easy kill. As they approach, I'll start seeding the ground with bombs, weaving back and forth to spread the charges out and laugh as they try to dodge their way out of the mess.

Then skip bombing can yield some interesting results. Nothing like having a Uber 109 on your tail and when you release your bomb and pull up, the enemy plane gets hit by the bomb blast yielding a killed enemy ship and plane for just one bomb.

Another fun one (at least in my pea sized brain) is when a guy decided to show me his fancy flying skills by going under a bridge. I was in a P-47 lugging rockets so there was no chance of keeping with him as he flew straight and level on the deck. So I shot the bridge out and he ran into the colapsed structure.

HE-111's are fun too. I'll use the clown pilot skin from IL-2 skins and it's always fun to watch those clowns bail out of the bomber. In fact, it's fun just to watch them while the plane is flying. I have just one question. Can a Volkswagen Beatle fit through the bomb bay doors on a HE-111? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

The torpedoing of the bomber is a great track. Once recently I was doing a head-on attack on a group of B-25s loaded with the big big bombs in a 109k4. As I started to hit them they started dropping thier payload and you guessed it, I decided to fly under the group as I finished my pass, and dead right into one of those big bombs(2000pounders?) under one of the bombers. The resulting explosion ripped the tail and a wing of my 109 and put it in flames, and hurt all four bombers enough that they all went down. I bailed and watched the whole thing from my chute.

How about this one:
PBNA-Boosher post a reply on this thread saying about bombing TB3 with his own TB3 crew http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, this is something a like... only much more frustrating (well at least for me it is http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif).

I fly RU Leningrad campaign 5th mission '41. He111's are on their way to my airfield to bomb it. My sq. is to intercept 'em. Mission was at 0.45hrs(night mission---wonder if someone get this mission? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif). I took off, and everything is looking good I was on 6 of one of He111's, and I damaged it's rudder, then He111 crew start to bail---and the last thing I saw was unfortunate German pilot who bailed and then collided with my plane. I was killed. This is nothing so specially about it. But then I hit 'refly' and SAME thing happened again. I've recorded these two missions. Just could not believe it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

It's little OT, but useful....
I've read somewhere (perhaps in a Tornado Pilot Interview) sometime ago, that low flying bombers (Tornadoes, F111) have the option to release boms (maybe the ******ed-fall ones) in order to hit pursuer with the consequent blast/fragments and that also injecting fuel into engine chambers could produce a kind of fireball that could disrupt enemy plane from the hunting, even if i'm not sure how this can be done...
Please forgine the OT, but I think it could be of some interest!

I was taxing a Bf110 on an online server, I had loaded her with 2xSD500 timed at 3 seconds for a low level attack. When I reached the end of the runway I turned around to take off and as I open up the throttle I look over my shoulder and see a spitfire mkix lining up on me. I rush down the runway while the spitfire is diving down on me thinking there's no escape, then I come to think of my bombs and I drop them on the runway - wheels still on the ground. I keep going and look back, just as the spitfire opens up the SD500's goes off and shred the spitfire to pieces. The explosion knocks off one of my wings and I spin around on the ground as the fireball, formerly a spitfire tumbles past me 5m above the runway http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

1. I was bounced by a 109 while dogfighting in my LA. Badly shot up, I had nothing left to do but turn tail and run. I flew NOE, jinking and yawing, flying low over tress and buildings hoping I'd get lucky. I reached an industrial center and started weaving my way between the chimneys. Suddenly... *BOOM*!
2. On one server, we were just goofing off. Everyone was red and we started doing all kinds of silly stuff. At one point, we all took I-153s and proceeded to do an old-school biplane dogfight. So I'm chasing and weaving, turning and shooting. There's someone on my 6, but I don't concern myself about it too much because - hey, what do I care if he shoots me?
So I finally decided to get him off me. I do a hard break right, and all of a sudden - WHAM! Bastard hit me right in the cockpit with his rockets! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
3. Same server. I was trying to nail someone with the 'delayed bomb' trick. I was in a 109 with a big bomb hanging from my belly, set to 2 seconds delay. Just as I turn on to the runway, someone comes down to strafe me. I time it just right, and release the bomb. I watch him gracefully curve past my cockpit, and then BAM! He (and I) disintergrates into a million pieces.
I laught my a55 off on that one.
