View Full Version : Bug in 1,2b? Not certain. Unusual plane spiral.

Was a dogfight in 1.2b and had to bail. While floating down I looked about and saw one LA5fn go down.

It was flipping exactly nose over tail while falling vertically straight down. It wasn`t a normal spiral down or a flatspin.

It`s difficult to explain, but it simply didn`t look right. The plane seemed to be ignoring the laws of physics. I`m no expert, but usually any plane going down just `looked` right, like it was fighting air or being caught in the `wind tunnel` of a death dive.

If I see it again I`ll try to save the track.

Maybe it`s a simple `one-off`.

Maybe others have noticed?
