In QMB, flying a Buff against 2 Mig3s, Smolensk map with airfield: landed on the strip as the Migs approached, rolled out, made a 180 and started take-off run. The Migs strafed me about halfway thru the run, instant kill, and I switched to F2. My Buffalo, with dead pilot, started a slow right hand sweep across the field, dragging a wing tip, but gaining speed and finally becoming airborne. It flew in climbing circles around the field, take-off flaps, gear down, full power until six thousand feet, still climbing, when I got tired of watching it. It had only 25% fuel but didn't run out. The Migs made several firing runs, missed it every time, and finally gave up and rtb. As somebody once said: there's always something new in FB.

[startBS]Realism and FM's count for nothing when you get killed in FB. It's the computers way of freeing of resources[endBS]

Dead Man Walking/Floating? Cool spell.

DOH. Wrong game. Damn Everquest. Played it 3 years and all I've got to show for it is 5 lvl 65 characters and the $2000 I sold the account for (cheap).

Russian aircraft require skill to fly.
German aircraft require ten times that skill, and one hundred times the patience!
