A little bit ago I was flying on Spits_vs_109s and this happened:

I took off from a base next to a lake, climbed a bit and banked right over the lake when all of the sudden the plane stopped in mid-air, the wings flew off and I was suspended vertically like this.

Also, it appeared as if the level of the water was many meters below the land and it looked as though you could fly under the map above the water.

I bailed, hit refly and took off after a Spit strafing our base.....

I've seen lag make a plane suddenly start flying backwards with the nose under the ground at supersonic speeds.

Yea, that is common, but there was no lag here.

Every now and then something really strange just happens with this sim.

Once years ago I was flying an I-16 and this guy was shooting the $hit out of me. He emptied his guns and cannons on my aircraft. From my perspective I had no effects, no graphic damage, no damage to the FM, I just flew on normally, but he said from his view the plane was absolutely trashed, riddled with holes from nose to tail and wingtip to wingtip....

yeah the wings thing looks like a lag thing,bit of a bummer that's for sure.
As far as the water,that's a limitation of the IL-2 engine,when water is placed above sea level in a new mod map it always appears as if its still at a sea level,even though you can still crash into it at the level it's in the map it appears as if its still sitting at sea level,its an odd bug and can make judging how far your off the water very very hard,as far as I know there's no fix for it.

Let me guess, you are using UP2.0?

This is an issue with incompatibility of mods online. Sometimes the enemy plane appears invisible. Pressing "S" shows the player, but not his plane. You hear bullet hits and your guns jam, but guess what? No plane! And then this guy sometimes assumes you are cheating. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Why are you posting this here? If there is a problem with a specific hyperlobby server the appropriate action is to bring the issue to the attention of the appropriate server administration.

In this case here...
