Got the four part version, watered my eyes completely, now I have to DL the movie as a single unit for DVD burn. Unless, of course, Smoke On is going to be available that way at some point in the future.

I've long loved the F-16, and was "just okay" about the T-birds, having seen them in many different a/c and over and over and over again when I was stationed at Nellis in the T-38 days. Even saw them flyin' Vipers at Davis Monthan last year. Cool, if not their tightest show. Then last night I saw Smoke On and it was like seeing the T-birds for the first time all over again. And you'll never, ever see visuals like that on the Discovery channel unless it's done in very expensive CGI and rigged to the 9's in an application like Lightwave3D.

Great flying, phenomenal production values and the best inspiration I've ever had to get my butt in gear and finish my Viper cockpit.

Since I've got ten thumbs when it comes to formation flying, might as well raise 'em all high for the VTB's. Thanks guys - "awesome" is just too plain of a word to describe S.O., but I guess I'm still a little bit speechless.

Lock On and Flaming Cliffs are on their way. :shock:

Finally, was able to DL it at work. Couldn't get it to DL at home. What an absolutely beautiful piece of work. You guys have raised the bar incredibly. Enjoyed it immensely. Will have to watch it several times. Cheers, Trap.

So who is going to do a virtual Blue Angels? I thought about rounding a few guys together and making a movie with some warbirds like P-51s. Thunderbirds Smoke on is great but gotta love the warbirds too.

I had a chance to once again view your Smoke On movie today and I just wanted to state once more what an exceptional job you all did on this movie and in particular Lawndart. Kudos and best wishes.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to download Smoke On. Everytime it gets to about halfway, and then I get a "connection to the server has been reset". I don't have any troubles DL'ing other large files, and could probably DL it as 4 different parts, but was trying to burn it to a dvd to show some friends the awesome job you guys did...

I had it at one time, but it got lost in a computer rebuild somehow... :(

You can try downloading each part separately by going to our Vimeo page. Once you click on each video, there should be a link to download the .wmv file (Right Click: "Save Target As...").
