VFAT2012 - Virtual airshow live this weekend
Dec 8th, 2012 at 6:02pm
 
Noticed this in the Asssetto Corsa thread but thought this deserves a topic of it's own. Just found this when looking for info on Assetto Corsa: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/12/07/the-flare-path-cumulonimble/

I had no idea that there's a Virtual Festival of Aerobatic Teams, but obviously there is and it's actually performed this weekend (7-9 December)! Amazed by how real it looks in the team promos.

Here's the official trailer for the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUPqu5wxlo4

It will be streamed live at http://www.virtual-airshows.com/ where there also is a schedule for the day.

Hope to be able to catch some of the action during the day!

Currently team Jet-E-Sons who's doing some awesome, perfectly coordinated flying with nine planes!

Looks just like it would at a real airshow Smiley

Aa, im at the Belgian F-16 Solo.
Started off with the Virtual Black Diamond Jet Teams performance and thought it was pretty neat, but then the VAT Berkuts performance came and i was blown away.
Amazing performance from a video game.  Shocked

Got to hit the sack though. Too tired to continue, but there is always tomorrow!

Ah, yes. It was the VAT Berkuts when I wrote earlier. Got the times mixed up, didn't think of time zone differences. The VAT Berkuts were really cool!

It's currently the Jet-E-Sons now, whick also looks really good Smiley

Don't like the solo bits though. I'm pretty sure it takes quite some skill but it's like watching one car drifting in LFS...

Well that explains it.

Was wondering how a LIVE performance can be so much off in different places. Cheesy

The Belgian solo wasn't that bad as he used a more agile Jet, it could do some neat turns which you didn't see with big formations.

The 5 man break ups were still way more awesome.  Tongue
