Shots From the Virtual Davis-Monthan Open House

The first airshow of the 2019 Season for IFCAS (an organization currently pending VARB approval) went off superbly. Other than a slightly screwed-up J-Turn Reposition my first 2019 Virtual Raptor Demo went perfectly. The Heritage Flight? SPOT. ON. Thanks to all who attended!

As an airshow enthusiast and maybe future airman, I thoroughly enjoyed flying it, and I think IFCAS will be an awesome organization once approved.

The fourth shot has to be my most realistic. Even the real Raptor Demo approved 😂

Is there any chance you could share the replay file of that flight? I’d really love to see how you managed to do such a formation in the HUD view! I’m skilled in flying alone, but that sort of formation flying never wasn’t a strength of mine really. I tried to train it by intercepting planes using a fighter but even that’s challenging, so I’m still learning.

The pictures are absolutely fabulous! Sadly I missed it, I’d have loved to watch it live. Amazing work.

i really loved that good job

When i fly the F22 (or most other fighters) in formation i zoom out on the cockpit view, it helps me see everything in front of me well

I kept only a small portion of @Scott.Cooper’s Spitfire’s wing in my view when in the passes of the formation. I loosened up in the repositions as to not totally lose him.

I’m going to be honest, unless he’s going super slow, I don’t think he’ll make it… 😂

Oh he made it. He even recovered from a front-spin on his signature vertical climb. Probably the best Herc driver I’ve seen.

Love the KC-10 shot and Scott’s loop shot but amazing overall 😍

Incredible shots Nate. It appears youve mastered Free Cam 🙌🔥
