Flying with the Angels by johnjoseco Flying with the Angels by johnjoseco
So the Wonder Bolts, no doubt, resemble The Blue Angels and someone suggested Dash should fly them. So what the hay!

Ponies in your air space! Dance with the Angels!

A couple notes.: I used a couple of pics for reference. I don't have a model F/A-18 at hand so would be quite difficult! Omitted pilot names on the planes. I didn't want the pic to be heavily detailed. As long as they look like F/A-18s, we're good to go.

Very satisfied with how Rainbow Dash turned out.

Dear John: F-18s aren't easy either. You must be justifiably proud of all the pic.

This would be funny if it was where I live cause I live near a millitary airfield where the airspace opened few years ago for public use but imagine if she would fly by when it was still closed and they see her in the sky and  they send some F16 after her, just imagine the look on the pilots their faces XD.

i was playing ace combat 6 recently and literally rage quit the last level (i was playing on hard and haven't played in like 2 years)

blotto5 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
I believe I was playing it on easy, but that last level was still a pain in the ass. Even with the F-22, or even with the nosferatu, although to be fair you can sneeze at the nosferatu and it'll crash. It was still a fun and emotional ending that I think closed the story out well. Now if only they would make another true sequel to the series and not that assault horizon bullshit.

I always finished the final mission with a lower tier aircraft like the F-15E or the F-2A. Easier going through the tunnel in those, IMO.

blotto5 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
The tunnel wasn't much of an issue for me, it was the sheer amount of fire you're under that whole mission. Need a plane with good armor. Playing it with the Nosferatu was an exercise in patience since you can throw a rock at it and bring it down.

Angel 1: I see the Pegasus, I just waved at it. I think it just waved back.

Angel 2: You don't think thats...

Angel 3: No, it can't be!

Angel 1: I think your right. Angels, thats Rainbow Dash from MLP:Fim

One of the best pics of Dashie ever! Though in Colombia we don't have aerobatic team, in my native country, Brazil, we have this: historica.com.br/wp-content/up…

The Esquadrilha da fumaca: they use Super Tucano advanced training/ground attack planes (those have an active combat role here)
