I figured that I'd follow up the "Favorite plane to taxi in" thread with it's logical followup topic. I prefer to sit around in an SBD-3 or -5, because you can shoot gas tanks, hangars, fellow plane sitters, etc., w/ the tail gun. Also like the B-25J, because you can REALLY light up the airfield w/ all those guns...

The Me109, because despite the generally unfavourable engine noises in this sim that one really stands out as an individual on initial engine startup and low RPM.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

o Squads! Take a look at the ADW War (http://adwwar.com/en/#), it's fantastic!
o Spinner has been alive in ADW for a maximum of: 3hrs 38mins!

The BF-109 is far too claustrophobic and I cant reach the rudder pedals properly in the 110. I mostly prefer the Hurricane for all my stationary pleasure, although the seat can be a bit hard.

Yes, a nice plane. Turn the hat switch to one side and then continue panning with the mouse and you can see nearly all the way around.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Two of the best looking cockpits in the sim<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yes, relaxes yer legs nicely but you soon run
out of activities despite its good allaround view,
but having 3 buddies in TB3 as gunners is still my favourite,
plenty of room beneath to fit more empty beercans,
guns for all to keep annoyed neighbourgs outside disturbing distance and conversation
on civil basis http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I think that there may be something nearby the machine that is causing this problem for you. You may need a mirror to find out what it is specifically." http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The P-80 feels good to me. I love the sound of that engine winding-up.

WOW, I totally forgot the TB-3!

In that plane, while still on the ground, you can, from the nose gunner position:

SHOOT YOUR PILOT
SHOOT YOUR COPILOT
SHOOT OUT ALL 4 ENGINES
SHOOT A RADIO OPERATOR (or something, it's been awhile)

Actually, it's even funnier to do it in flight...

Plus on the TB-3 you can sit at the table and draw some **** with the pencil http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
