As the WGV sale is going on I thought it would be interesting to ask folks to list whichever planes they've bought so far, and ask which ones you like the best for whatever reason.

I own all of them, and have flown each plane at least once. I like the Me-262 for it's really cool and unique performance ruler. I like the scenarios included with the G4M Betty and the SBD-3 Dauntless a lot. I like the Fw-190D because it's a propeller plane with 5 energy. And I like the P-47D because it's tied with the Mosquito for my favorite WWII plane when I was a kid.

Battle of Britain? I've played less with British than anyone, I'm keen to try the Darwin scenario from the G4M Betty. Lots of Spitfires.

    I'm holding out for $1.25. We can grind him down.

    I may buy all of the Pacific war planes this weekend just to have the files. I'll get to them eventually.

Love Me262 and Betty for the very same reasons of Chris.

Then, since I'm no way an expert in WWII I have a soft spot for the most iconic planes, the ones non-expert people are usually exposed to: Mustang, Zero, the Stuka, and of coure P38 with its twin tails.
Anyhow, to play this game with some more "mood" I've purchased a (very simple) book on WWII planes, just to educate myself a bit on the subject.

I've purchased all the available aircraft for the Battle of Britain. I assembled the Bf109E last night and will do the Spits tonight so I can get my first dogfight done!

I'm hoping the Do17 and Defiant will be released soon so I can round out my BoB collection and also do the Battle of France, Dunkirk etc.

I think I will pick up the aircraft for the bombing of Germany during this sale. Looking forward to seeing the Lancaster being released at some point!

I'm also keen to do the early war in the Med.

Mark

The Spitfire V has a Malta scenario using and-109F's and Ju-88's that I enjoyed. The 109F has an El Alamein scenario where they are intercepting bomb laden Spitfires. I haven't played it but it looks like fun, interesting performance restrictions due to bomb load / victory conditions.

LOTS of fun to be had with those aircraft! Some fun stuff involving escorting B-17's under different circumstances. And many cool planes, including the Me-262!

Yes, but thanks for checking since I didn't know it was new.
