Hmmmm... I'm rather bad at guessing distances, but I say: 5000 feet?

 

Good idea, Widow - maybe there are several ways to quiz with screenshots?

Sorry to break into the conversation, Im just curious. since I was a paratrooper, I give it a try. Thats at least 3000meters, more likely 3500. in feet thats 3 times more, so about 10000.

Have a nice flight)

Wow)))  actually its not my merit )) The game represents the terrain very realistically, it seems. The fields, roads, settlements look like this from above. About 3000m prop engines start to have problems with air (like our An-2)  sport skydivers go higher by turboprop (or small jet) planes. Your pilot must have had good alpine lungs ))))

Widow, perhaps you should re-name this thread (if you can) "The WOFF Quiz" or something like that?

Here is one from me.

How many of my Jasta 5 companions are circling over Epinoy airfield here with me (my Alb not incl.) ?

Raaahhh!!! A paratrooper with a Dragunov!

I only know these guns from the game STALKER (where they were very effective long-range sniper guns).

 

Fortunately I can say: no, there were no other (visible) planes around, and Corsaire, BurningBeard and Snail got it right:

7 Albatros were with me.

Adger, I guess, you counted my craft too?

Well, if it can be cleaned, that's good.
I had ordered a new monitor after Xmas and flying the first mission on it,

I saw 4 enemy planes approaching - until I realised, there were 4 pixels "broken";

the background LED lighting was too dark.

Of course I sent it back.

No problem - we could start a new "Screenshot Quiz" thread.

Or you could try "Edit" and then click "Use full editor" - maybe there it's possible?

Reminds me of the idea to use a Full-HD TV - did you ever think of doing that?

With my Toshiba Regza 37" TV it is marvellous vision - each time I move it over

here, I am amazed, how well I regocnise even distant aircraft.

I was thinking about a projector... a huge TV is too expensive and I never watch tv anyway. Although I'm not sure what resolution of a projector can handle...

A 1080p Full HD projector should handle at least 1920 x 1080. At a throw distance of say 4m that will give you a virtual screen size of approx 350cm on the diagonal.
