Ah, I see the laws of physics fail to apply to modern aircraft as well

Yet more proof!...

HunterICX 06-07-09 09:46 AM

landing those things is harder then I though..as soon I touch the ground ''KKKRAAAAAAAAAACSCHH'' ok...

Anything is possible with the liberal use of full afterburners and some high capacity bombs...

Proof... it Hovers like a choppa. Or hunter could do the simple thing... and press the Helocoptor button... Then rotors shoot you of the top of his plane...

Raptor1 06-07-09 10:05 AM

Yes...it does...but can it hover like a choppa right out of the solid runway?

Well, I suppose with the same tweaking of the laws of physics that got it in there...it might be able to...

Task Force 06-07-09 10:07 AM

yea... reverse the effects... hunter... get a shovel and dig yourself out...

Oberon 06-07-09 11:40 AM

Actually, the early Harrier did more digging itself into the ground than hovering :03:

That's what I remember too. IIRC a moderately loaded Harrier would literally blow away the tarmac when taking off vertically. Single-use runways ftw :up:

I read a story in a book the other day called 'Cold War, Hot Wings'.

A RAF Harrier pilot was flying at +/- 250ft at about 400knts or thereabouts when he hit a sparrow, the engine promptly died on him and wouldn't restart, so he banged out. As his chute deployed, he heard a roaring noise and witnessed his aircraft climbing into the sky heading for the Inter-German border :o
The GAF scrambled some F-104s and found the Harrier at about 24000ft doing lazy barrell rolls, unfortunately the F-104s couldn't match the turning circle of the Harrier and thus were unable to shoot it down. Eventually, about 44 minutes later the Harrier ran out of fuel and crashed on the West German side of the border. :sunny:
Turns out that feathers from the sparrow had blocked a sensor for the fuel intake or something similar, the US Harrier had a manual override for the sensor, but the RAF were too cheap to buy it from the start. Needless to say after the Harriers attempt to defect, the RAF coughed up the funds :haha:

27th August 1943 Weisse Mission Over Smolensk.

After a hard days fight we land to count all but two back home, and those that didnt make it we heard from shortly after through a rather drunk phone call from the Ju87 base to our East as the lads landed their due to engine damage whilst defending them on their return journey from a fighter sweep.

As you can see, Both Weisse and Rote are well represented here, plus we had one of the down unders with us, I hear he had to turn his monitor upside down to be able to fly properly with us!

On a side note, the mission we flew straight after this (28th August 43) was very likely MooCow's (Red 6 ) last mission with JG53 before he is deployed to 'Stan for the next 12 months (unless he gets to borrow some of Stan's internet connection by selling some camels ;))

Was fun getting in the air with Weisse. Not used to having so many around but glad they were. Shame my flying skills were more lolwaffe than luftwaffe though.:D

Forgot to check the fuel tanks on the 1st mission then collided into a PE-2 in the 2nd.

Oh well back to Gelbe on Wednesday.
