    from the latest merge. I think Il46 is pretty cool. Here some damage shots.

    Smoking Dornier, tail damaged


    Messerschmitt left engine gone after frontal attack...wanted to escape the scene in a dive the left wing gave way.


    Making a belly landing on the beach with minimum speed the right wing dissapeared under the sand.

    So half a Mig would make it a Mig 4.5?

    I grabbed this screen right after PF came out and just thought it was cool. This is unretouched, but I've a few cropped and filtered versions somehwere that I can't seem to find right now.

    The end of a rough mission attacking a Japanese airfield. Damage to both engines, rudder, flying surfaces, my thermos flask, navigators packed lunch full of shrapnel and then on finals the port undercarriage will not lower and then the starboard engine bursts into flames at too low an altitude to bail out and insufficient power to gain altitude again. I come in on one wheel, prang the prop on the engine that is still relatively working and eventually ground loop to a stop. We both manage to get out but to top it all I banged my shin on the canopy frame climbing out!

    Never had the gear fail this way before. Very immersive.
