Hi All,

Was just interested in hearing some odd or interesting things that have happened to you while playing FB. Here's one of mine.

The other day I was playing online just free-flying while others were training. One of the guyz challenged me to a one on one. Honestly, I'm quite board of this lately. So I decided to try to win using unconventional methods.
We made the usual pass where as each guy tries to get turned faster than the other. Instaed I just kept flying and climbing, keeping him 1k behind so he wouldn't give up. At about 7000m I turned into a dive and just as I figured, he followed. Around 700kph he was on TS telling me to reduce my speed. Around 750 I lost the right aerilon. TS again "Fritz,slow down!". Then I lost my elevators and finally my rudder. As I was reducing speed he says "I lost my wing!".
I levelled off but he of course crashed.
Being about 10k from my base I decided to see if I could land. Using my one aerilon, engine tork, and flaps I made what was possibly the smoothest touch down ever and only used 60% of the landing strip. I therefor won the fight without using any ammo. That made my day. I ruined my mechanic's day. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'm sure some of you guyz got some interesting stories and I look forward to reading them.

Here is one of mine:

Online on my 1941 Pacific server. I'm flying the Brewster at about 3K above the enemy base, when I spot two A6M2 in formation ahead about 500m below. I pass them well overhead, make a wing over with a hard pull on the stick and aply full rudder right. The result is a slight stall but after I pull up I'm right behind both of them going roughly the same speed, just as I predicted http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif. One of the zero's start banking back and forth quickly dropping speed and altitude, the other starts a climbing turn to the left, I follow him. At approx. 300m I fire a short salvo that hits right behind the engine. I see only two or three hits, but the plane catches fire imediately. I fire one more burst and get the message that I've killed the pilot. I bank avay from the doomed plane and start looking for the other one, I find him right below me with a speed advantage!
I try to turn left and continue climbing when I suddenly hear a loud BANG! And a flash lights up the clouds below. The next thing that happens is that some guy is writing A LOT of cuss-words on the chat. The second bad guy crashed into the doomed zero while flying through the cloud!
I totally ruined that guys day, first I blew him out of the sky with less that 10 hits, then he got a -400 score from teamkilling his friend!
And BTW: I got home safely but didn't score a kill http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif
