Ok, UberPickle started the "How low can you fly?" thread...

I want to see the earth's curvature... Anyone? Please make sure you have speedbar on, so we can see how far up you got.

Sure! Come to think of it, maybe there should be two options

1. highest altitude in a jet/rocket powered aircraft

2. highest altitude in a propeller-driven aircraft

The bets are on!

LOL, I knew it would turn into THIS. I was expecting it much sooner,though.

Depending how much zeros I put in .mis file alt related line http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
Would be interesting to see real highest altitudes achieved in game on specific type but I am afraid that only track will help here.

LowFlyer gets the medal, so far. But wait... since when do we have the South Africa map? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Kuna needs to check his graphic settings, Earth should look more like in LowFlyer's pic. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Hey Low Flyer, what sort of prop pitch setting are you using there?
