Well, to begin with, I am currently working on another project for airwarfare. I want to let Euro_Snoopy know that I am in the middle of discovering the depth of this little addon, which I must admit, is way more than my preconcieved notions were expecting. More about that later, Mate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I tried to save a track of an event that took place while flying a P-38 campaign . . . not a Dgen campaign, but a campaign that came as part of an addon. I'm sorry to say that the track was recorded as .trk format, and the data got messed up.

I have been flying this for awhile, and am soooo tired of waiting to takeoff. I want to procede up through the ranks and started as a 2nd Lewy, so yes, long waits on the runway. Now, what I am really tired of is the way my AI squadmates climb out at 300mph while the best topspeed I can hope for is 200-220 mph in a sustained climb. By the time that I arrive at the target area, either all my mates are dead and I am outnumbered, or all of the enemy is dead, leaving me with no action.

Well, this last time, I was to help clear out some BF110's, and when I got there, there was a flamer going down (Hey now! Get your mind outta the gutter!http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif). He was the last enemy plane, and I wanted to score a kill. So, after him I went. As I was attempting to killsteal from the AI superplanes, I dove on him from about 2,000 feet above. When I caught him I was going 400mph with throttle chopped. I start filling him full of holes, and VOILA! The little guys start bailing. Compressibilty was beginning to take the plane, so my control wasn't as good as it should have been. I plowed right into the rear gunner an instant after he bailed. Tore the Hell outta my Lightning. Now, this entire shenanigan started me to laughing, and even though I was over friendly territory, I laughed so darn hard that I forgot to bail.


I'm laughing so hard at this point that all I can do is hold my side and cackle like a hen laying an egg.

Nobody can tell me that this game isn't fun, even when you lose!!!! . . . Still the best, with all its flaws, which compared to what else is out there . . . are few.

I remember hitting a person bailing out with my plane by accidenta few years ago in FB 1.21. My P-40's engine quit and my pilot was wounded as hell:

the pilot I hit with my prop was fine, and opened his chute 100 meters later as if nothing had happened.
