Well... I guess this is as good a time as any to ask a dumb question. I've always wondered why the Blues DON'T wear O2 masks? Not a dumb question!:wink: The Thunderbirds wear O2 masks during demonstrations (when they wouldn't be flying at altitudes requiring O2) because the F-16 is equipped with an...

Man, would that A-10 also be able to use that gun? :lol:
They actually did some mock strafing & bombing runs with the three Warthogs using pyrotechnics on the ground just like a real airshow! 8)

This past weekend I did a guys weekend at a track called "Speedworld" not too far from Phoenix. One of my friends has a Mustang he races, and his boss races a truck on the dirt track. Didn't know it till we got out there, but Speedworld also has a very nice R/C park, and hosted a Jet rally with over...

Gunner, Congrats that is one hell of a job - every bit as real looking at half the price. I'm afraid I would not have the skill to do what you did. Curious, Does all the intrumentation function (navigation, comm, HUD, etc)? Every switch that has a function in the sim is functional, however getting ...

Do any of the members fly the cockpit that is featured in the galley section of the home page (looks like the F-16 version) and if so, how much did that one cost? That would be me...the major cost was time, didn't keep track, but it's in the hundreds of hours. I'm afraid to start adding up receipts...

I'm far from hating this game, but it sure hates me! :evil: I just received positive confirmation that my luck SUCKS in multiplayer. Got a Harrier through a care package and it didn't get a single kill for me. What is up with that? :?

Get yourself a new hard drive if you don't already have a second drive with room, backup all your data, and start fresh. These days you can get a terabyte for under $100, a...
