I noticed that in many movies that have been made such as "Purple Heart Alley" and "Last man Standing" we see taxiing aircraft. In a couple I've even pilots running out to their aircraft with when an air raid is going on overhead. How did you guys pull this one off? I thought that was impossible?

Taxiing a/c is acomplished by recording a track with human fliers.

Getting men to runs to planes is a trick. you setup a line of trucks off to one side of the caera and planes on the other, then you strafe the trucks and the men run out towards the planes.

Smart... how do you get humans to taxi a B-17 however? they're not flyable?

You can make AI planes flyable, they just wont have a cockpit and you have to fly/taxi them by using externals. Obviously this doesn't matter when making a movie....

getting the men running is easier if you put a plane such as a HE111 then while still on the ground you as the pilot press ctrl/E to eject
