Noticed an odd thing while just doing some offline aerobatics in the 109 F-4.
No flaps, or using the trim. I was at around 370 airspeed with wingtip smoke on.

Just to see what it woul do I banked 90 degree's, and jerked the stick all the way back. The 109 made this awesome hard turn, and I let off right before it stalled.

I've got a track although my e-mail is fubar at the moment. It was only for 180 degree's, but I can't say I've gotten anything to turn like that.

Every take-off is optional, but every landing is mandatory!

No reason to be surprised. It's the German version of the Yak3.

yes with the right airspeed bf109f's do very impressive turns. but still cant mess with the la7, which is, well, the best plane in the game i suppose, at least at turnfighting and accerlation.

But don't take that La-7 into a dive or anything of the sort. The control surfaces will rip right off. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

May be a stupid answer, but have you read about Marseille and what he did with his F-4 ? Any pilot (allied and german)who met him in combat was amazed by his flying skills and abilities in this a/c /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

When once you have tasted flight,
you will always walk the earth
with your eyes turned skyward;
to where you have been
and to where you always want to return.

yeah,marseille used both f2,f4 as a turn fighter,and was
pretty successful at it.lol

After it was refeuled i climbed in.With many manipulations the mechcanics started the turbines.I followed their actions with the greatest of interest.The first one started quite easily.the second caught fire.In no time the whole engine was on fire.Luckily as a fighter pilot i was used to getting quickly out of the cockpit.The fire was quickly put out.The second plane caused no trouble - Adolf Galland (first time in a ME262)
