I think I know a couple things he might say. The guy never pulls lead when he shots the dot is right on the plane. The other thing is the river chase, there was a similar chase between buildings in Pearl Harbor.
Back in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

I LOVE that scene.

Remindes me of a lot of the current scenario going on! Could easily be a film right out of Aces High :) 


Man you just have to know that their hearts must have been pounding in these types of fights in real life. I feel it in Aces High FSO, scenarios, koth, and it's not even a real life or death situation.

I think you're right about that, DS, and I also think he would say they went full-Hollywood when he pulls a barrel roll under the bridge at the last second and somehow causes the pursuing FW to crash into it.

Real a2a is too boring for hollyweird.

It involved flying for hours for a two minute engagement

No one would pay to see that thus the exaggerations
