Plane: Heinkel He 162 A-2. Flight simulator: Wings of Prey.

And speaking of video games, if you live in Germany, rejoice because you can finally play Doom!

    Good job he landed. This thing had a MAXIMUM flight time of 30 minutes. I’m guessing he landed on fumes 🙂

  2. xjonx says:

    Slightly interesting, but hardly note worthy. Now days anything can be flown in a simulator.

  3. Fritze says:

    IL2 Sturmovik is one of the best WWII flight sims out there, Wings of Prey is a watered down console port version. WOP is prettier though. The fact that its on sale for $6.00 kinda tells it all.

    Interesting. I wonder what they guys that flew the real things would make of this? There is no way you can feel one with the sims because you can’t feel the planes or the controls…or at least I wouldn’t think so.

  5. rick says:

    Pretty good, though I guess the simulator didn’t reproduce the HE-162’s propensity for the wings to snap off in high G’s.

  6. Slatts says:

    I don’t believe for a moment that a He 162 could fly at an inverted 45 degrees in straight line down a runway! Nor could it do some of those turns without ripping its notoriously weak rudder off. And as for the vertical stall – surely that early type of turbine engine would have flamed out!

    Nice looking! Too many spins for my liking, almost had to reach for a barf bag. And I agree the flight physics are almost certainly simplified. Good looking – very good looking, actually.

    I knew I should have passed on the three Chili dogs at the airport cafe that had been spinning around in the machine for 4 days.
