Tried that a bit with both aircraft, didn't really like it. Got the second one to the right, just end up twisting my neck.

A-10C coming online.

"Get yer motor running,
head out on the runway"

Yeah, right, sorry. On it.

Good lord, keep forgetting to post these. Had them converted and uploaded, but then something comes up, poof... maybe I should just start taping post-it notes to me forehead.


Fly about dropping all my ordnance, looking forward to making gun runs all the time. You just don't want to do that with a payload hanging from those wings, you know? No really, you don't; snapped off a wing last time I tried that, might have pulled out a little hard though... anyway, first Avenger run, take 1 burst of AAA, and guess what single component it takes out? Yeah...




Having someone on your wing makes flying better... dunno, it's just magic.


I really should respect the minimum altitude on bomb runs.

And of course the usual to wrap things up:

Strafing home plate.


Succesfull taxiway landing.





And some fancy 'Berbunch Parking'***8482;.

I keep forgetting too. Nice ones of me actually being relatively successful

..but then you had to include the little parking 'dink'. I doubt in RL that would've snapped off your port fin, and my port wing tip - speed 4 kts

It is nice trying formation flying, I still need to suss out autopilot to keep a straight and level heading - I'm all over at the minute, as you may be able to tell as it's all hand/eye stuff, which is great until I go to external cam to get a pic!!! I'm suprised I've never hit you in the air. Loved the low level through the valleys the other week

When's the next time you guys are going up in your hawgs? I'm available tomorrow after 1930 GMT. I guess I could also be enticed to break out BS. The last time I was in with you guys I had a blast for the hour or so I got to hang around. So looking forward to the next sortie.

Hawk aka JB-JB

Should be BS tomorrow evening, and A-10 on Thursday. Details, I think, are on page one of this topic.

Will be nice to see you again




Here's Arc's missing wing manoevre.

And I would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for those meddling aerodynamics!


Was thinking, we could shuffle times and days a bit. At least if that means more people can fly I'm all for it.

I'm relatively easy now (oi!) as PC is now out of stepson's room in the main family room, so I don't have to wait till he's at his dad's Wed-Sat to be able to play! As long as it's night time, I should be ok.

When did you have in mind?

I dunno, was thinking about making it work for others. My schedule isn't that tight...

It'll be nice when they get the compatibility patch out, then you could set up just one server and run both.. Which works for me, since I'm infinitely better at flying the hog.

Would be nice indeed. As powerfull as the Avenger is, it's a pain to actually use against tanks. That leaves you with PGMs to get the job done, or CBU-97/105. Getting a plain old Mk-82 on target is tricky. Ka-50 flight would be a good thing to hunt out those tanks then.

Look, two burning wrecks - and not one of them is mine



Although I had earlier ditched, it doesn't count as a flaming wreckage



My flying improved dramatically.

But please ignore the burning building in the background that I was in no way responsible for. Other than parking up in it. And clipping a vehicle on the way in.
