    Hi All,

    What is your favorite plane to just fly (not fight in?) Is it different to the one you like to fight in?

    I like to fly the corsair to enjoy flying, but can't fight it well, so prefer soemting I can turn and burn in.

    Cheers.

    Spitfire or Tempest! The B-25 is a gas to fly also, but the Boston is a faster plane, both are great fun.

    Trogdor - a reference to Homestar Runner???

    I had an Air Force guy in one of my old squadrons that wore a patch of strong bad on his shoulder.

    Good Question!!1:)

    I like flying any P51, but ABSOLUTLY HATE fighting in them.

    Down low in scissors: any P40!!! Even the P38 is lovely in slow scissors. Both with compat flaps and the Me109. Trust me

    Zoom climb tactics: F4F, F4U, P51, and again the P38 and Me 109, Spitfire

    Turn Fights: Again the P38(to me it is a very good all round fighter. try a 400mph turn and open the airbrake, a few will turn with it!!!) Spitfire, Zero, all the biplanes

    I hate flying any FW190, dont no why:rolleyes:

    This is limited views :)

    Contrary to Edie I like flying Fw 190, especially D version ( A8 variant is a bit heavy) but for fighting I prefer LaGG-3 or La-5FN/7.

    I like flying the Bf109, especially one of the F models. I also like it in combat, except against bombers.

    I like the Tempest. Those four 20mm's can take care of anything. Or, for that matter, the Mossie. Kaboom!

    But one thing though you can not post a Link on this site to other folks here except in PM though m8 ;)

    Anyone who hasn't, I highly recommend getting these planes. Also you can get a sound modification that just sounds incredible. Great stuff!

    I know I shouldn't really post this here, but the Sound Mod has now a new aircraft with its own slot:

    Spitfire Mk. Ia.

    It doesn't replace anything and the 'Site' has many more Mods out and more new 'flyables' coming:

    Seafire F.47.

    Spit XII (With Griffon Sound).

    Ju-88C.

    Could you send me that link, too?:lol:


    On topic:

    Since I only know the stock planes:

    Me-163 is absolutely beautiful to fly, i also like the 109 a lot. Fw 190... only the D-9 works for me. I also like the Il-2 for low altitude: it is rediculously easy to handle. A6M Zero's are also nice. And F4U.

    I-153 with 2 BS 12.7mm/.50" MG
