Okay so today I was versing 12 b24's and 6 guys that were in KI-61's , I was in ki-84


So when I attack a bomber from back I get caught on fire and my engine becomes inoperable and I bail out, before that I ripped its tail off and its wing gets ripped off. And it crashed into my parachute http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I have 3 versions of IL-2. One is the virgin backup that gets used for nothing but to be there if I need it. Another is a clean game that I used before I got into modding. The third is my modded version that I play heavily with.

The last two each have at least 50 tracks of myself flying online. The one time I had a noteworthy moment I realized afterward that I hadn't begun recording.

Somehow its a law of nature that we'll forget to turn the camera on when the important bits happen.

Close behind that law is the one that states anyone who does remember to turn on their camera will either have a phone or the shakiest hands in the world. And they will be Japanese.

So true. I flew online last weekend for the first time in months, hit the quick record and promptly sucked. I backed out of the server, came back in a few minutes later and did way better......but forgot to record it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I think it's funny when you knock out a bomber and the gunners are still firing at you while tumbling down to their fiery death. Tenacity and resolve I guess. lol

I got one of this some time ago.

I hadd one guy all over me cheweing my plane slowly slowly. I lost most of my speed and of course altitude and this pain in the arse... was allover me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif. Just wanted me dead. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
After quite a bit of abuze my plane cought fire and the poor pilot started frying inside. So with te last drop of speed I pulled the plane up, trimed nose up, droped flaps, just to be able to get it to bailout altitude.
As soon as I had enough altitude I jumped. My parachute opened just in time to have a safe landing.
I was all one big smile.
As my pilot was running on the ground to a "safe "distance i saw a shadow growing over him,...then splat!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

My empty plane went up for few more seconds, then after it ran out of juice , obviously stalled and fell right back on top of me.

Man we couldn't stop laughing. You could see the poor guy's legs under the pile of plane parts. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

On a similar topic;

I was flying an off-line campaign the other day and got into a fight with a Zeke in my Tomahawk. I was short on ammo and only got a few rounds off, but I obviously PKed the virtual pilot. The Zeke started this slow right-hand level turn.

I flew home and landed thinking... I never got a kill for that one.

I hit Ctrl-F2 and found him, still flying in a slow right hand level turn. This continued for a long time! I was determined to get the kill scored in my favor so I let the game continue as I went to the store, checked the mail, and washed the dishes. I came back and there he was still making that damned slow right hand evel turn...

I finally got discouraged and quit out.

(Why didnt I fast forward it? Well, I like to fly the off-line campaigns in real time. It's just something I do... So fast forward is not an option. I have been flying this campaign for over 2 months now. It's kind of fun to do stuf like this)

But the point here is... I wonder how many times this happened in real life. A pilot dead in a position in his pit with the stick and everything set to a slow turn, or level flight... flying along until he just ran out of gas... That would be really eerie!

A few years ago I attacked a Bf-110 in a P-40. I succeeded in damaging the enemy plane, and as I'm closing in on his low 6 to finish him, to my surprise the pilot bails out. And before I know what to do with that, he hits my right wing which breaks off. Funnily, this guy survives while I don't.

My favourite incident was a long time ago when I was in a A20 inbound on a blue field for a low level pass. Three or four 109's hooked onto my tail all shoulder shooting and getting in each others way.

With one engine out I pulled up into a steep climb and dropped my load of parra-frags and got one of the 109, while the others had their hands full trying to get out with their lives.

I got ythe aircraft distroyed message and then bailed out!

Hard to tell about war time, but something similar happened to an F-106: http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=4085


... The aircraft on display was involved in an unusual incident. During a training mission from Malmstrom Air Force Base on Feb. 2, 1970, it suddenly entered an uncontrollable flat spin forcing the pilot to eject. Unpiloted, the aircraft recovered on its own, apparently due to the balance and configuration changes caused by the ejection, and miraculously made a gentle belly landing in a snow-covered field near Big Sandy, Mont. After minor repairs, the aircraft was returned to service. It last served with the 49th Fighter Interceptor Squadron before being brought to the museum in August 1986. ...

It's happened to me in the game as well.

I got tore up real bad while flying an IL-2, and bailed out. The plane continued to fly for about 10 minutes before it finally crashed. I don't recall what altitude I was when I bailed out, perhaps around 2000 meters, but what the plane would do is go into a gentle dive for a bit until the airspeed picked up enough to bring the nose up again, all while being in a gentile left hand turn. So, up and down in a circle for about ten minutes. What brought it down was that on it's last dive it finally got low enough for the tail to clip a little hill as the nose came up again.
