Last nite on a QMB Me in a D9 vs an Ace P51D I shot at the comp plane repeatedly until its canopy jettisoned but the pilot did not bail.

Has anyone else seen this? I certainly havnt. Fact

I expect you killed the pilot as he was about to bail.

or maybe the force of gravity held the pilot in his seat?

yes i suspected he was dead yet the plane flew on. Looking back I think that the control cables must have been damaged and that the pilot was dead but the plane continued to fly, the plane was flying fast yet pulling few g's I came in again after watching the plane expecting it to bail about 2 mins later and blew the P51 up.

In the 109 if you release the canopy and hold on to CTRL G you can fly on for a few minutes without leaving the aircraft.

The pilot wont bail even if he's alive if the speed is over 400km/h IIRC.
