Just watched "When games Attack" on NTL (UK)

And as part of the show the host went to LA I think that's what he said?

Anyhoo! For Combat a sort of flying paintball!

I don't know to much about aircraft types but they looked like 2 seater Pipers (duel controls) but your pilot only did the take offs and landings, you flew the rest under his instruction as "when to bank climb power and so on" get behind you opponent and he in you sights pull the tigger.

A few hits ( some sort of tag ) and your targets plane starts to smoke (canisters).. Looked great!

Cost?? never said!

Its about $500.00 for the "Piper, actually Italian aircraft I think, and about $700.00 for AT-6 Texans, which is the one you want. maybe its more after 911. It used to be $400.00 a few years ago for the texans. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Its advertised on alot of aviation websites.

They featured a similar place on the history channel that used two seat versions of the Extra 300. Ita got to be a whole lot of fun to do that.
