Yea I’ll join. Looking forward for the details please

@Wingnut1776, I would join you for some formation flying. It seams like anything bigger than a two ship formation in IF is very challenging! I really wish that something like a red flag was possible, but we are so far away from organizing anything even close to that!!

I’m not sure if you have seen how people fly fighters in IF, but it is obvious that there is very little knowledge about fighter tactics or operations. I wish that someone much smarter than me would put together a tutorial on Basic Fighter Maneuvering!!! The way some pilots fly their fighters with their throttles balls to the walls intercepting other planes makes me shake my head. Managing your plane’s energy seams to be a lost art in the IF fighter realm. That has been my observation at least, I hope it is different for others!

(@Down4Double). Ahh yes energy… A Split S, a High/Low YoYo, music to my ears! Fox1, Here’s lookin for you kid!

@Down4Double hey buddy! Thanks stopping by! I understand everyone is not as advanced as some people who study tactics and maneuvers… But it’s still fun to get with a group of aviation enthusiasts who can still fly maybe a diamond formation or something close to that. If you would like to join us you’re more than welcome but everything starts out small and gets bigger! Thanks

@Wingnut1776, Yes sir, well stated. I couldn’t agree more! Red flag is such an extravagant exercise, I was worried that you were setting the bar too high. I didn’t intend to sound like an expert or cynic. Hopefully it didn’t come across that way.

Btw, I like your pic from the Naval aviation museum. It reminds me of my time spent at Eglin. I don’t think it gets better than that museum’s mock flight deck display with the Hellcat!
