Just recently had an interesting combat...

I had Tony's against Hellcats. The last Hellcat was skimming low over the water, so I jumped him. I ended up flying low right on his six when I gunned him down. He cartwheeled into the water and I, still flying low, flew directly over him. And that's when my aircraft disintegrated!

I saved the track and reviewed it. I don't see that my aircraft contacted any, or any piece, of his. So I'm wondering what happened there. Still, my plane came apart in a most amusing way, hehehe.

Probably damaged by a piece of the other plane when it exploded. I've had this happen several times recently when I've shot down another plane from a fairly close distance.

It was the shockwave from the blast that got you, not adviseable to be close to a plane that hits the ground http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

The USN pilot is a marksman with the flaregun.

hehehe. Maybe the USN pilot had a spare tomato that he threw VERY hard!
