View Full Version : leading cause of death

well im progressing quite well, my leading cause of death is
1. my own stupidity, i am 10 feet tall and bullet proof just count the holes in my wing.
2. just about the time im feeling good on the trigger i hear these thwacking sounds and end up in a parachute.
3. the closer i get the more debris i run into, those propellors are expensive
4.one of these days i will get the hqang of deflection shooting, til then im just annoying his crew chief and the metal shop.
5. Those annoying mid air collisions especially with a bomber, talk about tailgating... and that guy in the betty has managed to riddle me several times with that tail cannon.
6. finall get a kill and get back to the carrier and botch the landing and always overshoot and go over the bow, bowing out i call it.

My leading cause of virtual death is stutter.

try singing. mel tillis didn't stutter one bit when he sang.

yes Mrs. gumby (monty python fan by any chance?)

all of the above... plus trying to dig holes by getting too caught up in getting those little tanks in the rear with a rocket (kamikase il2's)

my carrier landings are still only 10% successful

IRL the leading cause of death is ... not eating and/or not breathing, in that order

i love flying along and all of a suddern the screen goes red and the lil tag "pilot heavily wounded" pops up..

thats what i get killed by the most, cause instead of buggingout and goin back to base asap, i fly around and succumb to my injuries, or crash trying to fight more.

Leading cause of death...

I'll have to go along with my stupidity. Second, I seem to be atracted to enemy aircaft, like a magnet. Sometimes I end up ramming the other plane lol.

OMG, I'm still a bloody noob!

"that was some of the best flying I ever saw...right up to the part where you got killed.
...You never, ever leave your wingman." Jester - TOPGUN

an ok film but a great line.

I always thought that was great that Mel Tillis didn't stutter when he sang. He had a great band too. What was his leading cause of death?

Leading cause of death == trauma (either sharp or blunt) causing injury (either grievous or slight) primarily (but not limited to) the head or other bodily area resulting in sufficient displacement of bodily fluids as to cause oxygen or nutrient starvation to vital organs resulting in their ceasing to function partially or in whole.

Dr. can u reccomend some other therapy, cause this doesn't work.. I still end up crashing on ground, in spite the fact that I almost lost my voice last night singing full loud while airborne. Geez.. nothing helps.

Maybe canopy.. open. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
