SYN Bandy Gets a Rocket Kill

Postby SYN_Adamfp3 » Mon Oct 13, 2014 5:34 pm

It was war. We were defending our country. We had a strict code of honor: you didn't shoot down a cripple and you kept it a fair fight.

— Captain Wilfrid Reid 'Wop' May, RFC, 13 victories WWI.

"Moment of glory" indeed! Sincere thanks Adam, and for recording in the first place. :cool:

I have to admit though, it looked a little different from my cockpit. In the video the explosion is well in back of the Albatros, when in fact I saw the rockets hit and explode all around his cockpit. As the vanquished foe retold afterwards, "it was like Thor's hammer!".

Amazing how just split-seconds of network lag can shape an alternate reality. :lol:

It was like a punch in the face!! :mrgreen:

In my perspective it was much heavier. I was immediately dead! :eek: :lol:

Nice shot bandy!

So that's the secret to the elusive rocket kill... "Get so close he fills your windscreen... then get closer still."

Well done Bandy, and thanks for posting Adam!
