Flight Journal: Never underestimate the Yak-7

The Yak-7 isn’t the best looking of fighter aircraft from the WWII era and because of that, it gets underestimated. Constantly.

Flight Journal: M-2000C on the tip of the spear

As you may have been reading, I’ve been busy working on learning the Mirage 2000C’s systems in DCS World and flying the jet so that I can eventually take it into a combat environment online. That’s usually the ultimate test for me and that test came up earlier this week as I took to the…

Flight Journal: Level bombing in the Ju88A-4

Back on January 2nd of this year, I set out some goals to try some new things. I wanted to fly more helicopters. Done! Learn the basics of airliner flying. Done! Fly some level bombers in at least one of the combat sims that I own. Not done! So, with just a couple of weeks…

Flight Journal: Helicopter splashing, target busting fun in the AV-8B

I’ve recently been having a lot of fun with the DCS: AV-8B again and I wanted to document another recent series of flights on Persian Gulf at War. I’ve been very selective with my armament setup and my re-learning process with this aircraft and I also thought I’d share my thoughts on how that’s going…
