Since the 1.2 patch I am getting a ton of air contacts that fly past my position without ever spotting me... anybody else encounter this?

I'm not sure if I like it or not. On one hand, it's a little more realistic, because they don't seem to be "B-lining" as much anymore. On the other hand, I'm starting to groan every time I see TC slow down and "Radar contact" because 75% of the time it's going to be an airplane, and of those times, 75% of the time it won't even find me.

well i have had that happen to me a couple of times, mostly when its a 2 plain formation, they tend to fly very high and just pass me without reaction, i also noticed that when it happens it tends to be early morning or sunset and i am between them and the sun...don't know if this is a glitch or intended.. "Zeros" never pass me without a try...i think that so far it has allways been observation planes that faill to see me...lol

The can't see each other, never mind you! Lol
I've nearly wet myself the amount of times i've prepped myself for 'Betty's' coming in with 'Oh s*it!" moments, and then they just collide into each other!
Of course everyone cheered onboard (inc myself) getting an unpromtue fireworks display of their burning planes ROFL

I have seen them fly straight into the water. I did not shoot them down, they just circle me and then go straight into the water.
