I'm just back from the show.

It was good to chat with Oleg and meet Ian and Luthier even if it was briefly. They were all showing some of the new aircraft and maps coming to FB.

I was most impressed with the new Japanese planes, the Mustang, and of course the Komet, but one thing I didn't expect to see at all is the V1 in action. What a surprise. The launch pad had been modelled with incredible detail, and before you ask, yes, you can destabilise the V1 in flight with the tip of your wing /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Anyway. Sorry for the short report (I have to go) and the poor pictures (My digicam is not that good and the lighting didn't help) but here you go anyway:

Oh, and here I have a couple of pics with the people gathering around FB. I'm sure some of you are in there. The only ones I know are:

8 - Ian Boys
14 - Oleg
17 - Luthier

I was the annoying biker that was pushing people aside with my helmet. Quit handy thing in crowded spaces /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Sorry for being so brief, but I'm sure more people will write in detail about the goodies. BTW, there was a list with all the planes coming in the next free patch, and the following Expansion CD. Good stuff in there /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Capt_Haddock
thank you very much .

Bavaria is one of the oldest European states.
It dates back to about 500 A.D., when the Roman Empire was overcome by the onslaught of Germanic tribes. According to a widespread theory, the Bavarian tribe had descended from the Romans who remained in the country, the original Celtic population and the Germanic invaders.

DAMNIT! I'm jealous! Looks like fun!

Did you kick Oleg in the buttocks for messing up the 109 FM? LOL

Neither would. I would shake his hand and thank him for a terrific game, no matter what it's faults may be.

Capt. Haddock, gracias por las fotos!!!!.
Ô┬┐Sabes si veremos el colimador del P51 en el primer add-on?
Me ha parecido verlo en una de las fotos pero ten├┬*a la ret├┬*cula fija, o sea, sin los diamantes.

Gracias otra vez desde Elche, ALicante, Spain

Now in english, for respect to the others:
Capt. Haddock, tnx for the photos!
Do you know if the p51Ô┬┤s K14 gyro gunsight will be included on the first free addom?
I noticed it on one of you photos, but it had the fixed reticle instead of the diamond shaped one.

Tnx again.

Thanks Capt, good pics and info. Seem to be a lot of 'old' guys in your pics, hehe. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
Most of them are still younger than me though. Sigh. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Glad you like them. I'm sure the people in the show will post better pictures at some point /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

*** Spanish ON ***

Luke. Nada hombre, es un placer.
Sobre la mira del P-51D. En el parche gratu├┬*to tendr├í la mira N-9 y en el CD de expansi├┬│n habr├í otra versi├┬│n con la K-14. De todas formas la cabina del mustang se sale. Nada de cutradas como la del thunderbolt. Est├í llena de detalles, ya ver├ís. Se nota que el juego ha evolucionado un huevo desde que sali├┬│ el IL2.

*** Spanish Off ***

Answering Luke. The free addon will have the P-51D with a N-9 gunsight, but the expansion CD will also have a P-51D with a K-14 sight.

Hello Capt_Haddock

Just got back from the show also, looks like the next few years are going to be very interesting with this sim, what with the new flyables and maps.
I especially liked the pre/post D-Day versions of Normandy, and with a new engine and scenarios like BoB coming I feel like a kid waiting for christmas /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Oh yes and I believe I'm number 4 in your line up.

Cheers

Could someone who was at the show please comment on weather there was any reference to fixing the sound issues,in the upcoming patch. If I recall (can't find the link) in a "unofficial poll" that was taken to rate opinions of FB,most agreed it is great,and would be better/perfect when the sound issues are corrected.

Thanks
