The Virtual Festival of Aerobatic Teams 2011 a.k.a "VFAT 2011"

Recommended Posts

Fly-Ins (and Fly-In displays) end this sunday. Shows will take place 2nd - 4th of December (live video streams). I stumbled into this almost by accident. Boy it was hard to believe my eyes. It is simply INSANE. I've seen both Thunberbirds and Red Arrows IRL and these guys fly similar/same shows also. But don't take my word for it, see it yourselves:

Audio of Virtual Thunderbirds COMMs from VFAT 2009 show (no video):


Seems to be DCS/Eagle Dynamics: Lomac/FC/FC2 etc. being used. No FSX though AFAIK.

More videos:


The organizers (I think):



I for one will be staring on those live streams with eyes wide open... If you think about how these guys have to fly: over the laggy net, with plastic non-precision controls and poor visibility outside with just computer monitor(s) - it just has to be harder than IRL. I wonder why no FSX groups, maybe FSX is too lazy sending position updates of other planes in multiplayer mode?

Like it too?

- Hmm... The board seems to force my links into embedded videos. Well...
