Hey give my guy.... Russel Case...errrrr... Ret.Lt Russel Case, some love, he was a Vietnam vet, he said it in the film, he flew combat in Vietnam before being abducted by the harvesters (official name of the aliens). probably a Sluf pilot, seeing how he just rams into things. :-?

Ah man, I remember watching that movie and thinking "no way can anyone just hop in a Hornet and fly." Well, DCS has shown me how incredibly easy the Hornet it to start up if you are willing to skip BIT. Systems operation on the other hand....


Yes, knowledge can really spoil these movies. :)

Good bug splat though.
Accel + Alt + VLO + DAS + MDF + Radial Distance = LIFE . . . Always choose Stealth
