I just love flying those slow and helpless bombers, TBD, TBF, SBD, D3A, you name it.

It's a really special feeling flying a torpedo bomber close to the waves with flak all around and fighters chasing you, you know you have to have some luck to make it... wohoo...

Talking from my old Aces of the Pacific experience though.. sure hope I can relive some of those moments in PF. Nothing like trying to land your shot up bomber on the deck after a successful torpedo run/dive bombing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I tried flying the SBD some in CFS2. Found out that I could turn inside of the Zekes and gun them down. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

Not to good at hitting anything with bombs dive bombing though. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/cry.gif

My favorite plane is the HURRI Mk.IIc. You can out-turn it, you can out-climb it, but once you get infront of those 4 Hispanos you are going down. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

Also love flying bombers(especily on-line).

**** planes are awesome....um,errmm, you know what i mean.

I love jumping in the P-11, I-153, Hurri I or any biplane i can get my hands on and going low and slow.

Dont know about **** bombers though. Only time i fly a TB-3 is when i feel the need to improve my a2a gunnery skills so i'm not easy meat in my bf-110

Lol, trying to get banned Deuce ?

I'm with Yellonet. The first things I'll be trying when I get PF will be a) a TBD attack run, preferrably at Midway and b) USMC Buffalos at Midway.

That'll get me in the mood for everything else. A little skip-bombing, flying through The Gap in the Owen Stanleys, SBD raids on Tulagi, and many, many, many attacks on carriers from both navies.

I like flying **** planes, that way I have a good excuse when I get shot down, which is very regularly.
