    You are going to catch a lot of flack for being a flight simmer and calling yourself a pilot....

    Having said that, welcome.

    XDD no worries, y'all. this looks like a fun bunch here. plus, I love to fly in the Spitfire and shoot down nazis >D I'd rather shoot down nazis than Japanese, since nazis are practically the root of evil in WWII. though I will say this: they were ingenious. what with the ME-262 and the Stuka dive siren (VERY cool sound, btw! think I'll have that as my ringtone! XD)

    and if any of ya have seen their designs for a lot of experimental aircraft, those are frigin awesome. like the Mercedes Benz C-class. an aircraft carrier that's an aircraft. quite fascinating

    Luft '46 - WWII German aircraft projects I'm especially fond of the Horten 229 flying wing

    If you think the nazis represented all evil in WWII, read about the rape of Nanking. The Japanese were just as bad.

    And I agree with Adler, flying a flight sim does not make you a pilot. You want the ultimate experience, go to one of those places that lets you fly real dogfights, with lasers instead of bullets. THAT will make you feel the real thing. After that, sims seem pale in comparison. Here is my first kill at Air Combat USA:

    wow, that is fascinating, Evan. but I don't have a pilot's license yet XD but I was just joking about being a pilot. ;) but I have downloaded sounds taken from real aircraft including the .50 caliber machine guns taken from the Mustang to make the experience a bit more real

    You mean playing in a Spitfire.

    Also most Germans were not Nazis....
