Notice how little the sticks moves, this will be very hard for ED to simulate with all the different joystick we have on our PC

Impressive landing a Viper with 5 feet of missing wing, but that midair can't be good for MP2's carreer, heh.

I just can't believe it made it back. Imagine recovering that?

I know what I'd say: THE F**K HAVE YOU DONE TO MY JET!?!?

Much like I said to the pilot of 279 when he recovered to Banak AFB with a missing ventral-fin and quite a lot of shrapnel embedded in the skin after releasing a Mk82 too low.

Had a hand-sized piece miss the flare-box by less than an inch, too. That could have been very nasty.

We had one in Al Uded come back with holes on the ventral. Pilot did not even know he had been shot at.

Talking about flares, you ever had flares bounce of the bath tub or donut panel (4305 and 4409) and leave scorch marks? I hated that, takes for ever to clean those off.

Nah, not that I noticed. For the most part we had little issues with the chaff/flare-system, apart from a few electrical issues that ment that the system dumped out 3-4 of each instead of singles, and we had one jet dump the entire box when a single flare was commanded. Don't think they ever found out if it was the flare-box or the countermeasures-system that was at fault, but the jet didn't have that issue when it came back from Phase.

I forget, you guys only had the two buckets on the jet, the rest where on the pylons (MAU-12)?
