S! all,  :icon_e_salute:

 

Lately, myself, my younger brother ("Furious Flea"), and my younger cousin ("Ballistic Brick") have been flying Airco DH.2s on NFF. I posted some screenshots of our escapades here:

Anyway, I made a short video about one of our flights that I thought some of you might like to see. Unlike what I usually do, this one is of the not-very-serious, lighthearted variety. I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoyed making it.  :icon_e_biggrin:

Yea it was fun, and yet a little sad that the Central pilots didn't get in the spirit of things,(2-3 on one DH.2), but that happens all the time.

 

P.S. If you want I can setup a map with a level playing field,(special DH.2's against all Central planes) :D

Yeah, if I had icons-off versions of the footage, I would have used those to avoid undue angst. That's why I included my note at the end of the film. We got lucky against those guys and I don't want to give the impression that they are bad pilots. If it makes them feel any better, I have been on the opposite end of the equation myself. I remember fighting B-24_LIBERATOR in his DH.2. Flying my favorite Alb D.III, I felt supremely confident...until he oiled my engine in the first pass! My wings were shot off shortly thereafter. :lol:

Great video guys! Keep it up! Now I want to see you taking on camels in eiiis :-D

Thanks for the nice little salute at the end there. You're right - the game is being kept alive by the community, and we are lucky to have you three as part of it

Back in the old IL-2 1946 days we used to call this type of thing "crap plane fun" where you go into a public server and pick the "worst" aircraft available and then see how much damage you can do. Even just picking outside of the usual top contenders and then doing what you can to survive and win is its own kind of fun.

 

I'm suspecting that the D.H.2 is that kind of fun :)
