  1. Past hour
  2. I will have to sort my log on issues with BoS and get back into it.
  3. Yesterday
  4. It would appear two weeks exactly; the sixth of July. To coincide with the end of their "huge summer sale". Gits! This has been the most anticipated plane release by far.
  5. 2 weeks maybe then?
  6. Not next week. Bugger!
  7. Last week
  8. Another one not going...sigh. Sorry you're missing this one Kelly - I might be in the London area 24th-25th though.
  9. I'm now in Israel that week...but will be in London July 24 for a couple days. Then off to Poland and back July 29 in London for 3 days. any chance any of you are around?
  10. Good grief, that's some noise! Must, must, must do Chino at some point! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Navy Wings report that the underside of the Sea Vixen has suffered substantial structural damage and will take at least two years to repair, probably more. Fault was due to a seized hydraulic pump which caused the quill drive shaft to shear doing major damage to the gearbox in the process. Bet that went with a bang.
  12. My God! he's created........Frankenstick Run!!
  13. lunchbox of DOOOM!
  14. Not enough buttonzzzz
  15. Sounds like fun
  16. Could indeed be interesting ... !
  18. Yep, it's part of BoK but it's also a 'collector plane' so it will be available to purchase separately.
  19. ok seem to have the hang of it now - whats important is to follow the video and do the pretarget selection and start automation- adjust speed until the sight is steady on point - turn off automation - raise sight and align on true target then start automation again- continue to adjust true air speed to keep sight locked on and it hits. I wasnt believing that tas would be significantly higher so that caused the bombs to drop long
  20. Oh, is this part of BoK?
  21. thanks FT !!!!!
  22. Next week!
  23. Definitely not down, such a beautiful plane to lose. Hopefully the pilot is ok.
  24. Judging by that, the spar in the starboard wing does look like it's broken, the wing has collapsed on that side when the aircraft comes to rest. You can see the prop blade that caused the injury in the crowd fly off early on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  25. My successes in level bombing are kinda varying, better results when I am 'concentrated', and keep my air speed and altitude constant. I never use that method he uses to set the TAS, I use this bombsight calculator: bombsightcal0.33 (Well, due to not paying attention, sometimes I franticly try and fix the bomb sight on the target using inc/dec of TAS setting, but that never leads to a good hit, maybe once in a full moon if I am lucky!) I run the calculator on a separate Pc, but it should be possible to run it on the box you run IL2 on... not too sure! Usually I do the calculations before the run, preferably during briefing, as alt and speed should be known at that time. Circumstances during the mission beyond my control may lead to a re-calc being neccesary ... If you drop long all of the time... maybe setting the TAS is incorrect? Do you take the target altitude into the calculations? Though if you do not do that, it would mean a short drop when the target is higher than sea level... Also, wind might be a factor? Head wind/tail wind? This video does not mention side slip setting, which you will need should there be some wind in the mission. BombCalc does cover this... And yes, keep practising, using level stab does not always guarantee a fixed height and speed!
