This sucks, I'm sitting in my apartment and can hear a merlin engine but its too dark to see http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I've seen the bird before its the P51 based in Waukesha Co. airport, but it still gives me tingles to see it flying.

Im from Antigo, a little hick town up in northern wisconsin, but I am living in Waukesha for a while, just five minutes from the airport. I get to hear the P51 once in a while and sometimes its flying formation with a T-33. There is also a little T-6 Texan their thats pretty cool to see fly. I found out the otherday looking around that Waukesha is the home of the Confederate Air Force Wisconsin Wing so they might have other stuff there, I know there is a PV-2D getting restored there. Not sure if they have anything else there, but could have swore I saw a Hellcat fly over me on the fourth of July.

You would know it, I never heard one before I moved here and I knew there was a mustang coming before I saw it the first time. The sound is great, to bad this game cant do it justice.
