The 3rd Annual DCS Fly-In has started!

Let’s use this separate thread for AARs for viewing pleasure.


This afternoon, @Aginor @Maclean @Bogusheadbox had a great session of ground pounding, harrier crashing, refuelling and night ops fun.


Either @Bogusheadbox or @Maclean discovering how not to set nozzles for takeoff from the Tarawa


Me sporting the amazing skin our favourite Italian artist @komemiute made.


@Aginor flying over the Tarawa at screenshot time PM


@Maclean’s glowing nozzles… It looks so awesome.


@Bogusheadbox joins in on my aerial refuelling

Then we attacked Anapa, where everything was dark until my Su-25A dropped some illumination bombs.


Meanwhile, the guys at the carrier were making a very expensive bonfire

And I got shot, losing one engine and, as I discovered way too late, a lot of fuel. So I dropped my last illumination bomb and ejected.



They should be able to find me…

OK, looks like the screenshot upload is still broken. I’m still keeping this thread because I think it would look better. Awaiting a fix, pinging @staff

If this takes too long to fill up, feel free to remove!

EDIT: Indeed Jpgs work. This is @Maclean landing his Harrier today.


#11

A boat! (as seen from the Su-25T I was flying today.)


#12


#13

@Maclean approaching the boat

and meanwhile a few feet above it: Bigfoot chasing the tanker

Eventually succeeding:


#14

I see this, I think about my fully functional HOTAS yesterday and this is…
138277


#15

I am so sorry, man. Would have been great to fly with you. :frowning:


#16

I honestly was REALLY looking forw… WAITAMMINUTE!
I have a Microsoft Force Feedback 2 somewhere in the garage!

Lemme just…


#17

Do it! I am flying with a 20 years old MS Sidewinder Precision pro and without rudder pedals. You can do it!
Probably not fly anything complex but for the SU-25T or any FC3 plane that one will work.


#18

Anyway, I’ll see if I can squeeze in another hour of flying at some time tonight or tomorrow.
It sure was fun despite the handicap. :smiley:


#19

Another of Bigfoot filling his tanks

Maclean checking the paintwork

Flying into the fray as the sun sets.

Seems to me that the AV-8B seems to be the darling of the day on @Tankerwade’s server. Everyone seems to be giving that lady some good flight time. Even with the bugs, everyone seems very to agree that she has a very promising future in DCS World!

Some screenshots I caught over the past few hours:


@Tankerwade in hostile territory.


F-15C’s made an appearance to suppress RED Air.


@Maclean and @near_blind on a formation STOL takeoff.


@DeadMeat flying over a hostile DDG. It is probably easier to spot the ‘welcome present’ being lofted into his F-15C’s general direction.


Harrier on a Tarawa - make sure you turn your brakes off … all of 'em on the Tarawa or you will drift right off the stern.


Some poster worthy formation work.


@Tankerwade turning toward the target area.


KA-50s made an appearance … stealing all the kills from the fast air.


More formation work.


#21

More nice shots.


Mirage 2000C CAP.


@Tankerwade working the SU-25.


@near_blind in his F-15C office providing CAP.


And showing off the tanking skills.


@HomeFries and Skeeter in the Viggen on an anti-shipping mission.


Forming up after weapons launch.


@DeadMeat on final in an A-10C with some damage.


@DeadMeat on the runway, fighting to keep it on the center line as @near_blind is about to get K/O’d by a J11 he annoyed some time ago. That J11 was dedicated.


@HomeFries buzzing the Tarawa tower.


#22

I’d never met that J-11 before. His friends, wife, mistress and mother however… :thinking:


#23

Tooling around in my sporty Sud Afreeken F-5 Scheme.

Based on the loadout (Mavs, no heaters), I’m going to guess this is @fearlessfrog .

@Bogusheadbox making a road landing.

@Maclean lobbying for ski ramps while putting on a clinic in STOVL.

@Tyco and @Gunnyhighway at the FARP.

I was feeling left out :expressionless:

Protecting the Mud Movers.

@HomeFries and his crew swatting at the Chinese fleet.

An AI Greek Mirage dueling with the enemy @Bogusheadbox and @fearlessfrog are the contrails in the background

Landing downwind!? Thats not ideal :wink:


#25

Correct. I’ve not even tried the AIM-9’s yet on the Harrier, so thought I might as well save the weight for more precious fuel. Besides, I had complete confidence in our excellent top cover :slight_smile:


#26

Hey, thanks for filling up the thread everyone! Nice pictures, especially @Fridge’s Harrier formations.

My 1st post has been updated with screenshots


#27

Some screens from over the weekend, cant remember who are all in the screenies.

Lining up…I think @Bogusheadbox and @Toppometer

@Bogusheadbox big’ol’booty

@DeadMeat

SAM’s are fun




Trying to keep up with @Toppometer

@fearlessfrog @Bogusheadbox Rearming and refuelling at the FARP, both put down these birds with skill.

@near_blind and myself en-route to destroy some Tor’s

Approaching the Carrier.
