It's a known fact that the Sopwith Camel killed more pilots in trainng than were shot down flying it. And I've just spend an hour and a half training to learn a tempermental, difficult-to-fly biplane. And this is what is referred to as a steep learning curve. NO, I didn't crash these planes deliberately for the picture. YES, I'm still playing on novice.
Failure to pull up after a strafing run.
Thwacking a tree during a low-level strafe.
What happens when I fail to gain altitude during take off.
What it looked like inside the cockpit about half a second before...
I concentrated too much on the target, not enough on my altitude.
This is what happens when I overconpensate for the engine's radial precession.
For this one, I tried to take off before I really had enough speed for sufficient lift.
Failure to gain altitude over hangar.
Rocking the plane too much on take off damages the wings.
Target Destroyed! But it turns out I have difficulty recovering the plane if I'm ground-strafing from ground level.
