New Aerobatic Team Ideas....

Post by NeurAxaL » Mon Sep 21, 2015 6:21 pm

So this was insprired by the 'we need more variety' post by VNAF (link to it it here: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=6154) in which he basically said he was sick of all of the jet solos and other cliche things that were getting entered, and wanted something new. So here I am, this is just a sort of test. What will happen at the end will be decided by how much traction the winner gains. There is a poll. you pick what you would most want to see at the next airshow. that simple.

IMPORTANT: THIS IS A SUMMARY OF EACH CHOICE, PLEASE READ BEFORE FILLING OUT POLL

A VTOL group - using the F-35B or Harrier, focusing on the VTOL manouvers

A V-Bomber trio - With this year set to be lhe last year of the Vulcan bomber flying, this would be a fitting tribute to Britains long serving nuclear deterrent

A YS Battle of Britain - Another classic British display, the battle of Britain Memorial is a memorial to all those who lost their lives not just in the battle but also the war itself. It consists of a Lancaster bomber (Lancaster Reg. HWR 'Phantom of the ruhr' is the onl airworthy one left) and any remaining spitfire and hurricane fighters, these change regularly between shows. there is also a dakota, and a few chipmunks. more positions can be added

any tweaks to demos or other demo ideas? put them in the comments.

Thanks for your time, and use your vote wisley, you only get one!

I like the idea of STOVL/VTOL demonstrations. Having seen the F-35B do a Short Takeoff, it is really impressive. You might be able to cycle in more variety by also adding in helicopters or V-22, the Yak Forger, etc. All these aircraft exist in a decent level of detail (X-35B, not F-35B) so there wouldn't be a lot of hard modding, mostly repaints if nothing else.

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, the yak-38 is pretty quirky and a nice YS model exists... i like it.

VTOL seems to be the winner so far, so ill have a look see what i can do with that *rubs hands together and laughs manaically*

It'd be nice to have some detailed British Harriers with nice .dats (I said nice btw). However the ones in HQP are actually nice too.
