    Great video. Downloadable too
    I've always rather fancied the blunt nosed versions of the Albatros. Not sure if you've seen this one of Mikael Carlson's latest addition to his collection. Looks lovely as it rolls out of the hangar.

    Interesting news - 'Weapons Modifications' coming soon:

    "20mm Becker Autogun, installed on such planes like Albatros, DFW C.V and Gotha
    4 additional machine guns mounted on Sopwith Dolphin (2x wing mounted, 2x angled in ****pit)
    57mm Davis Gun for HP 0/400
    Le Prieur rockets for various planes
    …and several other weapon options which you will learn about in the ROF Store".

    http://riseofflight.com/Blogs/default.aspx

    For those not in the know about such things (i.e. me), the Davis Gun was intended as an anti-submarine weapon, firing forwards and downwards - or more precisely, firing a shell forwards and downwards, while simultaneously firing lead shot backwards and upwards, to counter the recoil! Seems to have had limited success...

    Best news of all is the reloads for Lewis guns and the ability to tilt the thing and fire upwards. Look out DFW's, it's payback time

    Wa-hey! Two Holy Grails! Extra guns for the Dolphin and a slidey Lewis mount for the SE5. Must get back up soon - once I've finished tarting about with Skyrim. Which reminds me...

    Yup. I think I'm in love...

    Only snag so far seems to be that the bombsight is only calibrated to 100mph. Have to throttle back to bomb.
