When you start out on the runway in all of the aircraft, you are always faceing strait down the runway. Therefor you can't see if the aircraft in front of you has taken off. I thought that in real life aircraft where set at an angle faceing to the side so you could see if the aircraft in front of you has taken off. To correct this I have to start the engine, use the rudder, and try to sharply turn to the side so i can see when to take off.It might be something easily fixed in a patch down the line. Anyway I'm not makeing a complaint just a suggestion. I'm not for sure if the aircraft on the Eastern front were put at an angle in real life. But i think most of the footage I have seen from WWII showed planes set at an angle. La8er everyone.

It would be neat little feature but is it really that difficult to turn your plane by yourself with rudder? The AI wouldn't gain from the adjustment.

Be nice if you got a radio message: "Number __ you're cleared for takeoff". Until then you can roll to the side or use external views.
