I never noticed,then again I wouldn't say that isn't realistic. The Japs didn't think too highly of bailing. It's awesome that Oleg thought of that little detail(provided this isn't a bug).

They bail out all the time.
I've shot down about 50 of them now. They DO bail-

Not in my, possibly porked, 1.2beta. Haven't tested it, though. Just an observation. In one case, I was flying with 4 Zeros vs. 8 TB-3s. I died pretty quick, but I watched one of my wingman make a pass at the TB-3 and burst into flames. Instead of bailing, he turned around and made another pass before apparently burning to death in his cockpit.

Maybe the AI isn't complete then. I've bailed out of my Zeke quite a few times.

Yes, I meant AI only.

Could be that they're dead too. I've seen them bail out plenty of times in RC1 and 1.2B but if you hit them in the Cpit with a well aimed burst or in the wings more than often you either get a fried pilot or the plane explodes.

dead and making another pass?

My passion is to fly, nothing beats it, nothing can compare to it, free as a bird. Bird of prey.

Just coming back now from the Pacific Islands, and I noted the very same. Just, mine was a Frank pilot, and managed to down a Pony while burning (and just before colliding with an hill slope).
