I was flying a campaign mission today in which I was tasked with escorting bombers (I believe they were R-10s). After completing the mission and returning to base, I began descent for landing behind one of the bombers coming in for landing as well. I landed right behind him and taxied to the same ramp he did. By the time I was there he had already stopped and shut off his engine. I was taxiing into a parking position slightly to the left of him. I took a quick glimpse forward to check for any obstructions and returned my view right to look at the parked bomber. Lo and behold, he wasn't there anymore!
Has anyone else noticed planes disappearing in FB? Is this some kind of freaky Nazi experiment?

Stay tuned next week as we uncover the mystery of the disappearing plane! (Sorry, couldn't resist /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ).

Yup, rather annoying too. Before they would disappear, but it would take them at least a half hour to time out. Now they disappear shortly after coming to full stop. I hope this gets fixed.

I've also had AI planes EXPLODE immediately after landing and parking.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good one.
