80 Yen?
80RenMenBi?

I'm pretty sure you can get a copy for about 20 USD these days.
and that screenie is better than anything any other WWIIs im can offer, so whats your gripe?

Or is that supposed to be sarcasm?

A picture is worth a thousand words. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I would have paid $200 for these games and still be extremely happy. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Working on it, just a few more posts!
I reckon I got away pretty cheap than! Il2 was a gift, cost me nothing. And I payed some 290 SEK for FB, that's about... well almost 40 bucks.

Well, the I-153 is an open-cockpit plane... don't you start to lose consciousness above 3000m or so?

Actually, it doesn't really matter if it's open or not, the pressure is the same whether it's open cockpit or not. Loss of consciousness at altitude has everything to do with density and pressure.

Unless it's actually pressurized (and I'm not sure when they started doing that, but I don't think it was in WWII) loss of consciousness would probably SLOWLY begin around 4,000 m. There's something called "time of useful consciousness" which tells you how long you can expect to operate in case of decompression in modern airplanes, and it varies with altitude. I'm sure it would be easy to find on the internet, but I'm too lazy to look it up. Besides, I saw it once and forgot it, no sense in going through the process again.

But with an open cockpit, it would be way freaking cold. Are we on page 2 yet?

Guess who's bored?

Altitude and blood-oxygen saturation:

Sea level--about 95 to 98 percent.

10,000 feet--About 90 percent; you could begin to experience some of the symptoms of blood-oxygen starvation.

14,000 feet--About 84 percent; thought, memory. and judgment processes are substantially impaired. Peripheral vision may be affected, and hands could begin to shake.

16,000 feet--About 77 percent; you may not be capable of controlling the aircraft and could even lose consciousness.

18,000 feet--loss of consciousness could occur in 15 to 30 minutes.

Above 18,000 feet--Effects of hypoxia are described in terms of time of useful consciousness, which ranges from 10 minutes at 20,000 feet to 15 seconds at 40,000 feet (see the following chart).


Tlme of useful
consciousness
Altitude (ft) without oxygen

40,000 15 seconds
35.000 20 seconds
30,000 30 seconds
28,000 1 minute

You're right, they didn't have pressurized cockpits back then. That's why the pilots wore oxygen masks.

Any idea when pressurization was developed? I'm guessing it came with the jet era, since nowadays compressed air from the jet engine is used to pressurize aircraft. It must have been right after WWII, right?

P.S. Cloyd, sorry.

Well the B-29 did have a pressurize and some other planes have them too in ww 2

Among the design's innovations was a long, narrow, high-aspect ratio wing equipped with large Fowler-type flaps. This wing design allowed the B-29 to fly very fast at high altitudes without also having unmanageable flight characteristics during the slower speeds required for landing and takeoff. More revolutionary was the size and sophistication of the pressurized sections of the fuselage: the flight deck forward of the wing, the gunner's compartment aft of the wing, and the tail gunner's station. For the crew, flying at extreme altitudes was almost comfortable.

Any idea where the pressure came from? Was it just a regular old air compressor? And were fowler flaps really new in WWII?
