This is what happens on a boring rainy day off, I do wierd stuff like this. Sad thing is it only took me a few tries to get it done.

I'll tell you this, from watching this and your other videos, you certainly know the F4U glide characteristics in the game as well as anyone.

I remember a while back, you had a video where you landed it on top of a mountain, then ran off the side and cut the engine, and dead-sticked back down onto a carrier that was down below in the bay, but I don't seem to find that on your YouTube list now.

There were some maps like that when I started playing IL2 online. I remember one had 2 strips like a giant X on top of one of the highest hills of that multiplayer-map with the lake in the middle.

That was almost like an airstart, but landing killed more pilots than enemy fire - LOL

In the video, after that carrier landing I put the hook up started up again and took off for anthother try on the diving-board runway but I didnt stop in time and I ate the mountain. That was hard trying to stop in time without tipping over.
