Is that a crew member or a piece of linen shot away from the wing you sight is aimed at?

I've always thought it was the pilot. When it happened, this is years ago in OFF, I practically jumped out of my seat that a crewman jumped out. It was like OFF smacked me in the head with it's realism. SW

Looks to me like a piece of linen.

It looked like a crewman in that knee to chin tuck like seen in the CF Sim. If the OFF sim doesn't have a pilot jumping out in the game then I guess it was linen.

Visually now maybe, but, and this is now quite some time ago, as I recall it fell by me like a body, say in the way that it reacted and moved. So I paused and saved it as a crewman abandoning ship. And like I said it gave me quite a start that OFF was so inclusive of something that detailed. But age has not done me any wonders, so I could be wrong. No worries. SW

One of the things I have noticed that impressed me the most was that some enemy aircraft will try to "fox" you by spinning if you get on their tail in a fight. Either that or they will just run for their lives, the AI are very keen on survival but you will also see some that are really "out for blood" so you never know what to expect.

The AI logic is incredible.

I think you can still see the pilot in the plane.

Hi Steve,
Yeah I think it is linen.
I zoomed in on the shot and the gunner is obvious but you can make out the top of the pilots head behind the right rear cabane strut.

WOFF does have crew jumping from aircraft on occasion.

Still a good shot though yep

Have you considered that in case of Arup's Camel (at least) it could have been a gnome and not a person? Mr. Gnome Monosupape seems to always be the first one to be tossed overboard to lighten the load. In Seve's case it would be Mr. Beardmore to jump the ship, judging by the rest of the crew being oblivious to this act of self-sacrifice.

Which brings up an interesting ? Has anyone received damage to their craft from flying debris from another craft?

Yes, but only when the rest of the plane was still attached to the debris. Does blast damage from close by exploding balloon count?

Blast damage does happen but loose debris I'm not sure of. I have never received damage from it but often felt I should have.

I'll go with it. Like I was saying it was early on with my experience with OFF and I was astounded by the detail. SW

I've never been hit by debris but have certainly ducked from it... often!

I saw search lights for the first time yesterday.I even flew through them to see what effect, if any, there is. There is! My aircraft was lit up and it was a little difficult to see. Thank goodness they were friendly search lights.

Do-si-do, dosado, or dos-à-dos is a basic dance step in such dances as square dance, contra dance, polka, various historical dances, and some reels. It was also popular among French aviators during WWI.

Fullofit, interesting fandango you've got going there! Hmm. That's flying in close formation for sure. Question, I have not been able to get an image to post which makes the forum a lot less interesting to me. I follow the path of; Use Full Editor, Attachment Manager, Select a file to attach, Done, Post Reply, , , , And no image will post. I don't use the forum with phone or pad so the new 'improvements' on the forum are of no use to me. So if you have any suggestions on loading an image let me know. Thanks mucho, SW

Hi Steve, I can't post with my iPad either - response window doesn't show up. I have to do it on normal computer. Up to recently I couldn't post normal images either, only attachments until I've read post from CyBerkut's in the other thread:
forum layout weird???
The only difference is where he says to copy the image link in preview doesn't work for me, so what I do is I post with just attachment (through the Attachment Manager). Copy the link by right-clicking once I see it in the forum, edit my post and insert with the "insert image link" button since now I have the link and then just repost. Hope this works for you.
