I'm playing the "WeiBe Schwalbe & The Galland Circus" campaign (available here) (http://jyarbrough.homestead.com/Index.html) and the combat is not too bad so far (your flying an ME262 for cryin' out loud!). However, I'm on mission 6 or 7 and we have to leave our nice concrete base and go to a hidden base which is basically a runway on a dirt road with trees on both sides just wide enough for the plane to fit between. Oh, yeah, there is bad weather so under 300m there is severe turbulence. I've tried 4 times so far. Last time I made it and then got cocky and tried to taxi to the revetment. Well, I taxied into a tree. Maybe 5th time will be a charm http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Excellent missions so far and very challenging (the flying/navigating more so than the combat so far).

Yup, they have truly sick minds in the Charles manson category....it took me SIX tries to make it, and i had to take off my trak IR hat, go wonder woman cockpit, and i finally made it. bounced a bit to, but i didnt do any taxi stuff. I saw an ai guy land and taxi right into parked aircraft, so i just turned off my engines once down. Keep in mind you can land a bit short as the invisible runway theyre using starts a bit before you get into the woods. just make d@mn sure you got that road lined up right in front of you.

Ive also found that flying the 262, especially landing and takeoff, is best done in the elevated position, ie, shift F1, going from the gunsight view just over the firewall, to one looking over the nose that is a bit higher.
