OK, let's see your virtual carrier ops pics.

I've used the mission editor in every sim I have with a boat to create piles of carrier ops missions, in IL2 1946, Jane's F/A-18 (night foul weather ops), FSX (defaults), X-Plane, Strike Fighters 2, and Lock On FC2.

Here's hoping the next DCS offering is the F/A-18C with the best carrier ops ever. Active deck traffic, IFLOLS, LSO, rolling, pitching deck, the works!

And Rise of Flight needs to cover the birth of Naval Aviation, maybe even get into those Glen Curtiss years on Keuka Lake!

Here's a couple of Fleet Air Arm pics from IL2 1946. That's a Supermarine Seafire F Mk.III launching and trapping aboard HMS Illustrious. The battlewagon trailing is HMS Duke of York.





All right virtual Naval Aviators, let's see what ya got!

Cheers!

That's funny you mentioned Glenn Curtiss and his early flights on Keuka lake, Rick. My parents live about 20 minutes away from Hammondsport now, and I've been to the Glenn Curtiss museum up there several times- lots of cool stuff, and I had no idea that the area had so much to do with aviation history.

Yeah, been there myself many times. I almost volunteered to work in their workshop restoring planes, one of the guys in their shop was trying to talk me into it, but then got distracted by other endeavors.

I used to live on the East Lake Road off Route 54 on Keuka Lake, right on the lake. I miss that.

I caught some nice trout in that lake. We used to night fish off the bluff and catch some pretty nice Lake Trout, which aren't really trout, they're a type of char. We'd sit out there in the boat and drink beer and eat KFC all night while we fished. You have to fish about 110 feet down in the summer. We used sawbellies with a slip sinker.

Got some nice rainbows and browns out of there too. There are some gigantic browns down on the Hammondsport end, I mean world record gigantic. You get those in about 30 feet of water in the Hammondsport end.

Cheers!

The Seafire trap looked a bit low. You caught #1 wire, and should be aiming for somewhere nearer #3.

Otherwise cool, like nav-ops.

LOL! Yep, that's a one wire. I'm ashamed of myself. I notice I've been doing that a lot lately. I must practice more.

Cheers!
