It varies considerably, depending on the availability of external views, static cameras and time. Sometimes 'til everything in the game stops shooting, sometimes not at all.

In the campaigns that keep stats on your squadron's kills, I hang around a bit to see if they knock a few more down. Or, if an enemy you damaged will bite the dust, too.

Of course, the downside is you may lose more of your mates.

In DCG campaigns, I let it run till all the action is stopped. Wether I landed sucessfully or not.

depends on the extent of the damage I landed with. If it's a lot, I sometimes stare for a number of seconds wondering how I survived it.

I usually watch for a bit, especially if there`s a dogfight still going (and I haven`t been killed or captured). Sometimes I`ll even let an entire mission run without me if I prang my aircraft on start up and can`t carry on.

Usually not. I cant really stand the AI shooting in a turn and missing everything continuously till he's out of ammo. Makes me wanna cry sometimes..

In the DGC I like to let the mission run until the fighting is over. There is the danger of losing squadron-mates, but I like to imagine a little rivalry between myself and the other squadron 'aces' for number of kills. If you just end the mission as soon as you land then often your rivals don't get the chance to expend all their ammo, so its not such a challenge to out perform them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Sometimes this can be risky. One time I focused back on my own aircraft just in time to see a friendly plane barrelling down the taxiway straight at me (I'd sort-of collapsed my undercarriage so couldn't have got further out of the way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif )! I had to leap for the Esc key that time to avert disaster.

To be honest, once I've completed the objectives I tend to fly back to base and land while all the AI are still circling then hit escape. Otherwise I get to see them plough into me or each other and it takes too long.
If I get killed I hit escape pretty soon after stop the campaign (if I am being firm with myself. If I crash and survive I just refly.
I know, I have no soul.

Usually as long as it takes to hit Esc and Quit Mission.
