CRANK IT UP!! And you can hear the brakes,the pre-takeoff 'run-up-,the take off itself is a highlight.Then on landing,you can hear the gear come down and even a little tire screech as it touches down. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I did not see the video of you shooting the machine guns.

They did let you shoot the machine guns, did'nt they?

When I went up, I got to fire the twins in the top turret at a cessna. Sigh...good times.

I also wanted to add that not too many of us have had such a wonderful opportunity to fly in one of these. I am glad that you have finally had such a tremendous privilege, Mike.
Now you and I have yet another thing in common http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thanks, the coolest part for me was the sound, I cranked it up. I wish we had that sound in game, I sure hope the next one has the sound 360, unlike what we have now. Look forward its quiet, look to the side it loud.

That was great.
Green.
Green with envy. I am.
I hope to do that someday.
Cool, very cool.

Thanks for the nice comments M8's.
It truly was the experience of a lifetime,the sounds were so much more than the video accounts for.

I've got to give a big "thanks alot" to the Mrs.,as this and the Stearman flight the next day were an anniversary present. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif
