2% RPM difference between airbrake in and out seems small to me, but my only reference is the game. I guess I'll have to take your word for it. For now. :)

The Japanese don't seem to decelerate...

To me, the crew chief is the senior enlisted guy in charge of the maintenance of an aircraft in the Air Force. It is also referred as the plane captain in the Navy. Once the aircraft is on the ground...

I'm resurrecting the thread with some more recent videos to help new Eagle drivers to land.
