The I-16-29 was a recent giveaway plane for completing missions. That's how many of us have acquired the majority of our premium planes. No $$ involved, just completing a few missions. Pay closer attention to the events happening in game and you can get some nice free stuff.
i do. but as it stands...with fps of 12 and pings in the upper 100's and packet loss happening at 150..i am limited in when i can try for these events. i do what i can..when when i can...i am currently on my parents satellite internet as i am at their home with my son for the holidays...the speed test i just did put my ping at 728, upload is 21.56 and download is 28.71....in no way is that even remotely playable until i get home. in which case, i would be out 6 days of this event.
