I was wondering which are the largest flyable planes that one can fly under such edifices (especially the shinto gate).

I can't tell you wich are the largest, but the most awesome flying under those shinto gates I have seen is in the video "Pilotage Kaleidoscope" by the amazing Fighting Wood******s aerobatics team, if you're interested in the finest aerobatics and formation flying, you shouldn't miss their work.

See this thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/65710358/m/9841019104/p/1) for links to that video and some screenshots. It's a big DivX video (~60 Mb download) for the 800x600 version, but there is a 640x480 too.

As an appetizer, and for closer examination of their flying within IL2, see this other thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/8381011714/r/8381011714) where they link a 1.5 Mb ntrk of some more magic (no shinto gates in this one if I remember correctly).

I've taken a couple screenshots of the Pilotage Kaleidoscope to show how they do it: They fly the P51 mostly (and some others too), and the P51 won't make it through the gate in level (horizontal wings) flight, so they go through a row of red gates putting the wings through the diagonal http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif and changing rythmically from one diagonal to the other as they go through them at full speed!‚ ‚ ‚ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif‚ ‚ ‚ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

I'm just now thinking that maybe you've seen the Wood******s already and that's why you're asking about the red gate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

When I first watched their video, I played for a couple of days in the FMB to try my luck, but it really takes lots and lots and lots of work to do what they do http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Anyway, everyone enjoy watching them, here's a search result (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=search&reqWords=Fighting+wood******s&exactPhrase=&optWords=&notWords=&f=25910613&subjectOnly=N&afterDate=&beforeDate=&authorName=&exactAuthor=Y&sortType=1&ptyp_msg=Y&ptyp_count=3&x_display_post_details=1&groupType=1&search=Search) for 'Fighting Wood******s' that retrieves a few more threads and links.

Cheers,
S.

No, haven't seen them yet (thx for the links btw). Even the Buffalo cannot pass under the shinto gate in level flight.

I think there are few planes in game that can run through shinto gate in level flight. I mean planes like I-16, Yak-3, and maybe clipped Spitfires, other Yaks, LaGG-3/La-5/7 and Bf 109. Those all have wingspan under 10 meters. Dunno really if they fit cos I haven't tested it yet.

In the video I mentioned above, "Pilotage Kaleidoscope", the Wood******s go through that row of gates doing perfect continuous barrel rolls in the He-162 "Salamander" jet, at thrilling speed. They also do many other aerobatics displays not involving the shinto gates, of course.

Cheers,

I tried with a Betty once...unfortunately the wings dont quite fit through...so they got knocked off, luckily I just skidded on my belly to a safe stop.
