Does anybody else try and fly under bridges just for a grin? I have got some really good tracks saved especially a TB3 with one wheel skimming the water. Can a future update let aircraft land on bridges, it is my next goal.

Here's one for ya:

In the Crimea map there's a castle. It has an opening. Land your plane just outside the door and bail.
Then take a picture of your pilot running through the door and into the castle.

You made that track youresf, or you gotted from here somewhere?
Cuz I'v crossed under a bridge too, and happend the same thing, the TB-3 is jus to tall...
About landing on bridges, I've managed to land an 109E near a Wodden bridge, and taxi over, fut I blew up. I'v tried also a Yak9 with unrealistic landings but with a concrete bridge, but my plane just passed trough and I went for a swim.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I at least know that it is possible to do it with a He-111, though on my first try I did not fly low enough and my Rudder got sheared off. Then, while I was on landing approach something strange happened because of this, I did slide in the air (flying with the nose in 90? degree angle to the direction of movement). Did I look surprised when I reviewed the track.

Here the links to a few pics:

And the track displaying the marvelous, strafing He 111:

Just watch the negative waves, some fool in a P-47 might blow it up.

there are quite a few castles and fortresses in the game, the FMB forum people had a thread a while back that lists them
