A-10N - has folding wings. :D

The Mig-29K is the only real plane there actually.

Why are there no names in the wall of fame? Shouldn't last month's winner be there?

EDIT:

TIgershark: did you spawn all those planes on the carrier by modifying the STP, or did you actually land them all there? (Just curious) ;)

What happened to this? Why wasn't there a screenshot contest for September and October?
Not saying I have the time nor resources to participate, but I'm just curious about this.

literally stared at the topic for 20 min before I could decide who to vote for! Great stuff here :)

-- Sat Nov 01, 2014 12:39 am --

Congrats to Coopinator, great screenie indeed! I literally stared at the screen for 20 min before I could decide who to vote for. hesitated between Scarecrow's, Decaff's and Coopinator's pic. Finally went for Decaff :)

I like the how SC choose to place the aircrafts, the F-18 directly above and behind the A-4F with their tails fusioned togheter, like they're welded and flying perfecly in unisson, also love the resizing. Overall feel is honor and heritage. I also like how Decaff gracefully blended aircrafts with the scenery. I am usually not a fan of perfect centering on the subject but I love it when it's well done as it is the case here and of course, love the canadian colors. Coopinator's screenie is a great exemple of a successful pic using the fish-eye effect, I love the angles of the wingtips on the two extremities F-18's. Taking the smoke in the pic lets us clearly see where those airplanes were a few seconds ago and what they did.

Note that I waited after voting ends before discussing specifics, I think it's best to avoid influence of any kind, since I told who I voted for. (I will never vote for myself btw). just my 2 cents.

Great pics out there, again :) great job to all, these were my 3 favorites this month. just wanted to share why I think so.
what about you guys? What's your fav and why?

I believe Venom has gone off YS now, he may come back every now and then. Can someone else take over?
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

I see no reason to wait. These contests are fun!

I propose we do "Propeller Aircraft" as a topic. Any addon on any map. Solo or formations allowed.

What do you guys think?
Check out my website YSDecaff for all my tutorials and addon releases.

Feel free to ask me a question! I'll try to answer it as well as I can or recommend a more knowledgeable member if necessary.
