I would love a floatplane- the Catalina would be great, and quite a change from normal aircraft. There was not a flyable floatplane in IL2, but there was an AI floatplane.

To be able to fare well,
To avoid the frustration of misfortune,
That, in this world, is happiness.

in FB now there are no flyable boat planes but several AI ones. i can think of 5 that i have flown. you can add these to dogfight missions online, quite fun. they have some issues when taking off from land (only the PBN and JU-52 can do it usually) but with airstart on, you can fly all of them, land on water, etc. with the new prop effects, water landings look great.

Yes you can fly the float planes /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
Only on AI though /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Get the map from my site (its got all planes flyable)
http://members.home.nl/lil.labbit

First select a "normal" flyable plane then press Esc and refly with the floatplane.

Allways have an airstart! (floatplanes explode on runways)
- you can land on em though although it is best to land on water...

Happy sailing !

I wish we could get an amphibious Catalina flyable!

i flew the pby in a server on hl. it's the onlt float plane that doesnt explode on contact with the ground after spawning. lol it was a pain in the A$$ to get her into the water though. but once she got here sea legs it was sweet! only thing is it dosent carry torpeedos. IMO something i think it should do. Landing on the water was very cool too.
it handles fairly well also. Wonder how Gib is comming on the cockpit for that thing?
