S! all

 

By popular request (I'm a person and I requested it to myself), and never being one to pass up an opportunity to showcase my own incompetence, here's some footage of two-seater action - the good, the bad, and the hilarious - recorded over the last weekend during the Cuban Connection Vintage Mission (as well as some training sessions on New Flyers and Friends a day earlier). As always, with the unparalleled Captain Darling manning the guns.

 

I edited the best bits together, but still ended up with close to half an hour of footage. What better way to spend a cold snowy/rainy Friday afternoon?

 

 

Stay until after the credits!

Most of the time I have no idea what he's doing back there.

Thanks for watching!

I’ll post it on the IL-2 forums as well as soon as they come back online. Hopefully we can get a few more people interested in flying two-seaters in RoF or FC down the line.

Cool! You know, I'd love to see an RoF track captured from Captain Darling's point of view. Is that possible Captain? Record an RoF track then capture it to Fraps? Kind of like a gunning tutorial for crappy gunners like myself.  :icon_e_biggrin:  :icon_e_salute:

I’ve been trying to get my hands on a track of the Captain so I can make a video showing both perspectives (if I track record as pilot I can’t switch to his position), but he’s notoriously protective of his aimbot cheats. He even managed to install them on my laptop when I visited him a few years back, but somehow they only work for him.

Anyway, I’ll make it happen for part 2!

The toughest part of my job is dealing with incompetent clowns who think they're good at their job.

Free Plank!

I tried my best Hellbender and Darling impersonation during the knights of the sea event.  It didn't end well for the gunner but I survived. :icon_lol:

It's always a pleasure to see you around, man! I'm sorry I didn't properly say hi the other night, as you can see we were quite busy. And you may be J5 now, but you'll always be IRFC to me  :icon_e_salute:  (no offence to J5, of course)

 

You should drop by in the IRFC teamspeak this weekend.

 I may just do that... would be good to say hey to you and the Captain.

Did you post it? I can't find it. I want to follow it with another one, recorded by my gunner back during last BA.
