Unofficial Aviation Buff Thread


There have been some videos in this thread from flight simulators that could catch you out in thinking that they are real. I saved this video a number of years ago of Japan ASDF Phantoms shortly before they were retired, and I think it shows the opposite effect. I always thought that the opening shot of a Phantom coming in to land looks like it is from a simulator and not real life. It is only when the plane gets closer to the ground that it is clear that it is in fact real footage.
