    Last night my wingman Zigfreid and I were flying our RB-17's underneath the bridges on the Alpine Gambit map. Now that may not sound like a feat, but I suggest you try it in a large and fast plane like the RB-17, somehow it has just enough room. 

    I mused that maybe that should be the initiation for all RB-17 pilots. If you can fly under a bridge and not crash, you are then ready to master the plane. Something for the bomber pilots who play the game to think about.

   

Take care everyone and Vale!

Sounds like fun, you should post the vid.  They used to have 'Follow The Leader' contests where people would have to fly the same flight path and maneuvers for prizing.

So much fun such a big bird such a little opening! lol <O

One side has a single arch and big opening but the other 

side has three arches and a small opening, threading the 

needle is a pure adrenaline junkies dream try it next time!

Threading the needle is pretty harrowing indeed!

 

Best I've done so far is going through a bridge arch with the F-94D...  :unsure:

Just a little clean-up.

Reminds me of the old Bat map with people flying down the "Not the Golden Gate Bridge" for it's length in the fastest planes they could.

 

Looking forward to seeing the video.

I remember dogfighting on that bridge and threading through the support cables, laughing myself silly as my pursuer got his wings clipped as they attempted to follow.

I’m sure there are others from players on here, but a few quick examples via google.

 

 


 

“The sad truth is that the one thing around here is that we can always rely on is broken promises”& WarMagic the Scattering- Ace_BOTlistic_Cosmo █ If a company can't handle the truth based on pixelated facts then they shouldn't be in this industry to begin with. Or stop overreaching at areas where they obviously lack the resources to make a sucess (WOWP)” - ArrowZ_  As it is, this “upgrade” is totally misdirected and completely ignores all player feedback over the past few years.  How this studio continues on with the parent company is a total mystery to me.” - Bobby_Tables  The only thing that will fix this game is for the developers to right click and hit send to trash. - xPALEHORSEx  They've been around a good while and seen a lot of flak so they surely must know what they're doing by now. - Catch21  All wargaming has done in all their games across the board have been stupid and greedy ideas. They are failing as a company so hard. - Veraxu  Maybe Persha should avoid patches with the number 5 in them... - mnbv-fockewulfe  You put the bombsite behind a lock until you get specialist for your bombers? That's just stupid. - comtedumas  claiming victory by fixing your own problems isn't victory, it's low brow chicanery.- TheMadPizzler  Flying games generally don't have broad appeal, and this one has issues and the company tends to pour gasoline those issues, not fix them - _Laserguided_   “I go to RU and (rhymes with git) all over dumb Slavs to express my rage.” - Rando CA  If you want to sell someone a car, you let them take it for a test drive, you don't run them over with it. - Blast_Radius1  My quote + Your signature + Please = Thank You- Prenzlau  Feelings aren't stats, now shut up and go eat tide pods” - Noreaga  “The player online count was removed October 2017 and we don't have plans to return this number to be displayed. That is the decision of the developers team.”- blindfold  After a While it Becomes Tiresome (07.06.15)” - MALICE_AT_BIRTH  “Yes, we can have a place to report all the bugs and then watch as they all get ignored for 6 months” - Gang_Starr █ SonicPariah and blindfold might be listening to us, and sending our ideas along, but Persha sure isn't getting the message.” - CorvusCorvax  They just go on inventing new not-asked-for stuff before fixing what people clearly don't like ...”- GonerNL █ There is a difference between arcade and this roll your face on the keyboard simulator” - Fog_Heavy_Cruiser_Chokai  “The real question of the day: Is there room for one more quote in Bubba‘s signature?
