Tried to do a search on this, but search apparently isn't working.

I'm on about my 15th mission in a USN campaign. I have "no instant success" checked off (which should mean instant success).

Last mission I got clipped and had to bail, got captured. Quit the mission and my only option was to refly. I was rammed from behind when trying to land on a carrier and was blown to bits - my only option was to refly.

I prefer to fly "dead is dead" offline (well ok a mulligan here or there). The squadron roster shows who had died or is missing, etc... but I can't (die). It seems rather anti-climatic to just escape to the main menu after many hours without a fitting "end" to a career - or am I missing something?

You can't virtually die. Once your dead, you can refly, or delete the Dead campaign.

If you want more you can always have a copy of TAPS on hand and throw some Vicks in your eye....

I think the best "hey your dead" ending was in Red Baron by Sierra. It would show a newspaper clipping and say something like "The death of Umptiscrunch was morned by blah blah blah" The artcile would say different stuff depending on how famous you were.

Yep, many an hour spent on and offline with Red Baron - original and 3d. The little video clips when you were awarded, promoted, captured, etc added something to the game - I wish IL2 had it.
