    Does anyone agree that it would be great to see airships, both flyable and as targets , modelled in flight sims?

    To hell with flight sims, there is I believe a place for airships in the real world.

    There are barrage ballons that you can shoot down (well make them eplode), look for them in the mission generator (or around airfields in some online servers)

    I'd rather go for a cruise in a large dirigible than on board a ship, what a way to see the world.

    Until it goes Hindenburg on you. I would like to fly an airship, but not during combat, something about all that lighter than air gas around you doesn't seem very reassuring.

    I would also like to see airships fly again and that, at least today, is possible because they would be a lot safer than those back in 30s.

    Once in awhile would be nice but after a while it would be like looking at fat women as opposed to a model

    My Father had a flight in the Hindenburg before it went down and could never get over the size of the thing, and the luxury built into it.

    Not to dredge an old thread or anything (which is exactly what I'm doing, heh) but anyone here play Crimson Skies? Sure, it's not realistic, but you had zeppelins and stuff along with cool customizable planes.

    It really is. Anyone know of a server to play online? Like does Hyper Lobby support it?

    Dang, I got it when I was little and never really had a chance to play online. And the Xbox game can't compare. Sure, it's fun, but it's just not the same. There might be another Crimson Skies game in the works, considering how the original creator got the rights for it back from Microsoft.
