The Japanese Zero pilots, many whom were only 17-18 years old, used to do some fancy aerobatics showing off the prowess of their Zeros. I hope this is modeled to some degree in the sim! -Smarmy little B*st*rds! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

In at least some cases, the aerobatics were actually commands to the members of the flight. The radios in the planes were of such poor reliability that visual cues in the form of aerobatic manuevers were used to comminicate.
