In Chuck Older's "When Tigers Could Fly" campaign I bailed out and collided with the fusalage breaking it in half. Death comes in many forms in this sim. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Here's a link to the short .ntrk (about 1 meg.)

You must not bail out enough there OldCanuck.

I wish the Il2 series had more realistic bailouts. I remember how bailing out in European Airwar didn't always mean survival. Bailing out of a spinning aircraft was particularly dangerous. I thought it was a cool touch that made you think more about ditching.

Seems to happen to me all the time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
Since I frequently fly il-2's online I find myself bailing more than flying.

I'm beginning to suspect that the corkmaterial in my head infact is magnetic to props and fuselages. Either that or the fact that so many attackers follow my burning, wingless bomber to the ground, still spraying 30mm and when I bail between the shells I get hit by the attacking plane.

Many axis flyers are very devoted and will make sure I cant recover in any way, and they will not even fall for my "lose my wings and burn" trick.
