This is a pic i got from flying one of my missions. Unfortunatly as you can see below i never completed it. I was looking through the tail gunners sites when i got a bandit. He started smoking and then all the sudden i hear a big boom and flames surround me. I paused and went to external view where i saw this. He had cut me in half and decided to take me with him. I was so excited to get my first kill and then BOOM!. I'm dying. This as another post states is a game that puts you in a state of immersion. Just when you think things are going great something bad happens. I can't imagine what the real guys went through that flew these things. My heart goes out to them. They are men that deserve more honor then they are given. I salute them! ~S~

Hehehehehe.


I like the gunners warning, "Bandits Coming in 5 o'clock Level!!!"

I could almost hear the pilot...."No **** "

Lucky_1,

I know what you mean. I was doing good. I downed two fighters before all that crap happened. Kinda bummed me out. I had endagered my crew by shooting at a fighter. I like this sim. The amount of randombility is endless. I love it. Great, esp. the immersion it creates. Sucks to have what happened happen though.
