Post subject: So There I Was.... (lotsa pics)

Note: While you're waiting for these pix to load (sorry) I'll explain that one of the cooler things about Rise Of Flight is the ability to record 'tracks' - which will be familiar for those coming from IL2 - which is essentially recording all the events and actions that take place during an online or even offline mission. Then using the playback function afterwards, you can review your flight later offline, take screenshots, change viewpoitns and even watch dogfights and strikes that took place many miles away form you and outside of visual range. Kind if like a mega-FS-REcorder feature with a built in playback feature. So if you turn the recording feature on while flying, you can later review some interesting sequences. Such as below.


So there I was,
patrolling along the inside of our front lines in my trusty Pfalz D.III on the Newwings multiplayer server on a nice fall day.

I%20spotted%20a%20couple%20of%20Albatross%20D.V's%20approaching%20from%20the%20East%20so%20I%20decided%20to%20join%20up%20with%20them%20and%20support%20their%20efforts,%20whatever%20that%20might%20be.... In%20short%20order%20we%20had%20crossed%20the%20front... ...and%20were%20sufficiently%20reminded%20that%20we%20were%20in%20Indian%20country... The%20flight%20lead%20suddenly%20dove%20for%20the%20deck%20and%20without%20knowing%20why,%20I%20decided%20to%20look%20around%20before%20giving%20up%20precious%20altitude...the%20guy%20in%20the%20red%20albatross%20seemed%20a%20little%20uncertain%20as%20well... Keeping%20your%20eyes%20open%20pays%20off%20as%20I%20spotted%20this%20Sopwith%20Pup%20with%20a%20white%20stripe%20above%20us... He'd%20spotted%20us%20as%20well%20and%20I%20climbed%20and%20turned%20into%20him%20to%20defeat%20the%20attack...%20 ...which%20revealed%20more%20company%20coming%20to%20join%20us,%20two%20Sopwith%20Triplanes%20inbound%20in%20the%20distance....%20 The%20Pup%20flier%20was%20not%20without%20skill%20and%20was%20slowly%20closing%20the%20circle,%20but%20I%20kept%20a%20very%20slight%20altitude%20advantage... He%20broke%20off%20and%20went%20after%20the%20red%20Albie,%20who%20was%20about%20to%20be%20bounced%20by%20one%20of%20the%20Triplanes%20as%20well...
