Who is looking forward to watching Carrier crashes? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I sure am. I'll probably grab a book, join a multiplayer dogfight game, set my view on the carrier, and watch flyers botch landings in any number of funny ways... Crashing into the control tower or bouncing off the deck or running into the wires... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Just one of many ways PF can and will be enjoyed. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif I wonder how the AI crewmen are going to clean up the mess though.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif That sounds like fun. I wonder how many pilots will try to land before the fire from the last "landing" has been put out?

You just ain't learned to land until you've mastered the traps. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

just curious? if you crash on the deck of the carrier will the DC team ( damage control ) move in and put out the fires? unlike IL2 you dont have other options for landing amd without a clear deck you gonna be S O L if you need to land. besides it would be kinda neet watchin those AI guys running around the deck. also how are they going to handle the takeoffs and landings? in RL you couldn't do both at the same time. just food for thought

That was some of the best flying I've seen yet! right up to the part where you got killed.

And, will you get your *** chewed out by one of the AI officers for messing up his flight deck?

hopefully the debris from other people crashing will not make it impossible to land.

i hope landings in this game are realistic. i find lomac landings to be too easy. they may be easy in real life, but i know american planes have computer assist. I love watching the carrier crashes on the history channel lol. should be fun.

I can't wait for this http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I'm especially excited about seeing the noobs try to take off and go careening into other planes waiting to take off, or ignore carrier discipline online and land even when the deck is full or when someone else is trying to land http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Some people are just gonna take away from the carrier experiance, but it will still be fun.

Well, if some can't get the hang of traps, they can always join up with a squadron that is land based.

First time? You don't know the half of it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A lot of the people I encounter online are lucky to even land on a mile-long concrete runway. So, yeah, watching them try to land on a carrier should be quite the experience. Take-offs too, especially in a fully loaded plane when you're starting in a #2 spot lined up on the island and you have to swerve around it. Fun all around.

This thread makes me wonder, it would be nice to have a camera view from the carrier, to see all the aircraft take off and "landing". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

&lt;S&gt; Cuda,

Is that Navy Mustang skin available to a "guest" squad pilot? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif The 51 looks unbelievably awesome in blue.
