Ace Expansion Pack, for the Me-163 Komet.

Well, you cannot fly a large variety of missions with it.

Yet somehow it gives me the best illusion of flight, especially when fuel is empty and you are just gliding, figuring out on how to make a spot landing on your home base.

I say Luft46/SOM because it includes all above.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Sunday last my other half decided she needed to use the PC all day to do some work???so I was tasked with taking our 18month old out so she could have some P and Q.

I decided to continue his indoctrination and so took him down to the RAF museum at Cosford. As usual on this type of trip I neglected to check the state of the camera batteries, and it???s getting a bit long in the tooth anyway, so I didn???t get to too many pics. What I did get wasn???t much cop, since the lighting was a bit poor, and all seemed to be of Luftwaffe stuff before the batteries went.

The other pics are very dark, but include some shots of the Me163, and the Me410. If anyone one is really interested I can upload and post those also. They???ve also got one of those Arado RATO units but couldn???t get a shot of that.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

thanks for posting. Intreresting to see the Rheintochter in the background. Glad that one didn't get too far - would have been a devastating weapon against US bombers.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Maybe that third pic is where they got the idea for the Lerche from. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It certainly doesn't give the impression of being a mock-up - it looks like a 60-year old item, warts and all.

I'd guess if you're short of strategic materials and wood does the job, then it would make sense to use it. It is a big thing, and it would be an awful waste of Aluminium if you had to use that.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Slightly OT, but they also have a really nice Me163 AND an OHKA at Cosford - amongst others. Well worth a visit.

Remember, the Komet had major performance bugs in out of the box AEP. Airstart only and a busted throttle. Plus the B-25 wasn't included, when it said so inside the cover. 2.02 or 2.04 was the fixed AEP I think...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You are right for that. It felt quite helpless when the engine instantaneously switched off on the runway, and you did not know whether it was a bug or a feature or what to do ...

Anyway, memory always seems betrays you. Perhaps that's a blessing.

Amazing what the Germans came up with, and did'nt the guy who designed the A4/V2 also design the Saturn V rocket that powered the Apollo missions?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
