That depends on the plane doesn't it?
It's very rare to be able to look straight behind you, because you can't lean in the game, but with some planes you can see almost right behind you.

The first thing thing that struck me with the Corsair and the Hellcat was the poor rear visibility! I'm not syaing it's wrong - it matches the model perfectly - I was just surprised.

I don't know why the Corsair is so highly rated. Wierd little plane!

Ok, you can try. You'll see the plank behind your head...

How 'bout a mirror?

BTW, watch your neck... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

DuxCorvan, that signature line pic scares the beejeebus out of me. I have seen that movie at least a half dozen times and it still gives me the willies!

Anyway, the view to the rear in most combat aircraft of WW II was pretty poor. The pilots headrest was usually mounted on a chunk of armored aluminum or steel, so visibility to the rear was poor and directly to the rear was blind. Rear veiw mirrors helpe so long as your attacker was approaching from above, but if approaching from below and directly at your 6 o'clock, you would be dead meat. Very few sims have working rear view mirrors.

That you have obviously played the game, and that you have that opinion, tests the limits of my optimism.

They can fly I~16 to see what rear view looks like and the Wildcat landing gear crank too. Wait for the whinnig about that. Them. 39 or 40 cranks maybe.

Well 39 or 40 would be better than the 51 cranks of the I-16. I can't believe I voted for that! What the heck was I thinking!? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
