Speaking of perfect conditions to catch sonic shockwaves. I was watching a video of someone shooting an M&P15R chambered for the Soviet 5.45x39 cartridge like mine.

They are trying to hit a target at 700 meters with open sights, but check out the air between them and the target when they shoot.

The accompanying text is a bit misleading, this is after all a Flug Werke replica (incorporating some original parts)... BUT, it's still awesome!

As anyone who saw the one fly at Duxford a couple of years ago will testify. :D

Nice find Kev.

There's a real one being restored in the States with the original engine. I believe a man named Crumpp is in charge! :(

Not sure if this has been posted before...

One of the P-40's in NZ has fully functioning .50 cals installed and occasionally undertakes live (blank) firing. :o:D

I would rather like to see this in the flesh! Somehow though, I think it'll cost me a ticket to New Zealand, because it'll never happen over here in blighty! :huh:

Some pictures here:

Annoyingly it won't let me reply with 3 videos...

You can find the airborne live fire here:

And some static videos:

Nice find Chris. That would be awesome to see and hear. Just shows that the in-game sounds need a tweak - .50's don't sount like that!

Here's the other vid.

Not strictly an aeroplane? But impressive nonetheless!

I like the thrill of low flying as you know, but that video made me uncomfortable. Just a little too close to the edge, even for me!

Textbook emergency landing in a Neptune. 2 greens and a helluva cross wind. Good work
