Some other aircraft have the negative G impact as well, like the Hurrican Mark 1 and the I-153 biplane. The fuel systems were gravity fed, thus the engine cuts out because of fuel starvation. If you get really wild with prolonged neg G's, the engine could stop and sometimes won't start again.

yea...ya know what, you guys are right, it always happens when pullin - g's. cool thanks. while i am not new to combat flight sims(started out with B.O.B. their finest hour), i am new to the whole complex engine managment found in FB. i usually kept that to the comp to handle in the past and suddenly realized that i was missin out on a HUGE part of the game. so sorry if i ask some stupid questions.

plus i dont know much about alot of the planes modeled in FB. guess thats why they called it the forgotten war huh.

yeah just do the old roll into the dive like you see in the war movies . has teh bonus of looking really neat when done in formation as well
