Yeah, great plane no matter how you look at it. And still counts as the loudest plane that I've had the pleasure of hearing

Meanwhile, some more normal pics of my recent flying:

Yep, makes for a fantastic alarm call at 0615 every morning as they set off to bomb the crap out of Tora Bora.

Honestly, 0615-0625, without fail. If OBL was there then he'd know exactly when to duck, and live another day.

So this might be a more appropirate picture for you then

Nearly, take away the houses and the lush greenery, and make it a bit sandy...

A little tribute flight for my next door neighbour, a big Spitfire and aircraft fan, whose funeral it is today.

RIP Guy

Falcon 4.0 forever!

Hard to believe it's been around for 16 years already, and is still being worked on and improved - and is still unmatched at many of the things it does.

I really must get back to BMS, DCS is good but the campaign is rubbish compared to Falcon, and even EECH for that matter.

Yeah, there's really nothing that touches F4's campaign - EECH/EEAH is 2nd best if you like modern-era mud moving on a smaller scale, and also still well-supported. But the scale of what Falcon does is pretty breathtaking.

Took me forever to get back into BMS and I dreaded having to re-learn the ropes, but within a couple of days I brushed up on it enough that I'm now flying campaign missions again and it feels like I'd never been away. I've been playing F4 since a few months after it was first released, and I don't think it ever left my HD since then.

I must admit, I never ramp start, I got most of the hang of the F16 in AF but BMS is a whole different kettle of fish.

Haha, it's a habit thing I managed to get it down to a 21-item checklist that I keep in front of me - works pretty clean and I'm usually ready to roll in only 5 minutes (though the INS takes about 8 to align fully). The data cartridge system (especially if you use WDP to configure it outside of Falcon) really takes a lot of work out of the initial config. I always actually found the DCS A-10 to be more work in startup.

Windows for Warthog is a pain in the arse, I agree, although I think I've managed to get it down to a rough start without using the checklist, the error board helps, sometimes it's a case of working until the board is empty. I always forget the EAC switch though and Arclight or Raptor has to remind me where it is.

The data cartridge is an awesome piece of kit, but yeah, a bit of work to set up, but handy for putting in additional steerpoints for quick target location.
