Here's another one of my little 1 minute videos to annoy the IL2 PF community. This one shows me landing on the Lexington after a long mission without realizing that the carrier was about to change course. The lesson here; Always be aware that if your carrier is heading toward an island that it will change direction soon. Dumb, and don't make it do that in the first place. But it is odd the way they side-slip suddenly anyway.
Srry the aproach is jittery, I wanted to speed it up to shorten the video.

The course change is relatively smooth is the mission designer bothers to place some extra waypoints in the ships path so that it moves along them smoothly.
