Built a flight of 4 Ju88 Mistels.. all 4 started off on runway, 4 human pilots online. QAll 4 took off no problem and flew for about 60 seconds.. the HOST flew on to complete mission no problem..all three others ran out of gas within 60 seconds or so of take off. Checked settings and fuel, all listed in FMB as 100%. Ran it several times, exact same roblem.. JU88 runs out of fuel and pulls Fw down with it.. Fw still has fuel..just not enough power..

Oddly enough, I was online only today with a mate of mine and I'd set up a flight of 2 Mistels just to show him what the set-up looked like and flew..(and what the explosion looks like http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )
I was lead and he was # 2 and he had exactly the same problem - the Ju88 started to lose power and he had to dump it, tried to climb away but got caught in the afore-mentioned explosion. It didn't occur to me what had happened until I read your post.
A bug indeed, or perhaps just a representation of the desperate fuel situation of the Germans at any Mistel airfield.
