Strangely, it is harder to take down a flimsy model airplane with big artillery than it is to shoot down a real plane.

Yeah I agree wasup, but a real plane would be traveling much faster as well.

@ Wassup

`Strange` was sarcasm, I reckon. You`re great at finding it.

Its actually a .30 cal double not a .50, and in the video caption it says that its "strangely" harder to hit this plane than a full size one. Well no poo sherlock, this plane is a foot and a half across going 20 on a perpendicular axis. Its damn near impossible to hit one if you didnt have the kind of guns these guys did. Why the hell wouldnt it be harder to hit than a 15 foot plane.

An argument between the local chapter of the NRA and the Model Airplane Club was to be settled on the killing field. You can clearly see who won

Wow, was that an MG-42 fired from the shoulder? You have to have some serious muscle to do that.

Oh, and Cheify, his comment does have some merit to it. I was at a similar shoot like in the video, and I was blasting away at a plane with machine guns as well. Couldn`t hit anything, until I picked up an AR-15 and took single shots at it. After about 10 I nailed the gas tank and it crashed to the ground.

Actually, this is probably a pretty good representation of WW2 combat conditions for turret gunners on bombers. That`s why they were so dependent on fighter escort- it became very clear before the end of the war that a machine gunner had little hope of hitting a fighter.

Life doesn`t get much more American... But it was still pretty cool. I would have found it more satisfying to see a closeup of the bulet hole and suchlike....

"That is a lot of reloading to do. To close a range for the AA. Better off with a bolt action with a scope."

"why on earth do people this stupid have so many guns? and big guns. i understand "right to bear arms", and i love guns, but anti-aircraft artillery is taking it a little far"

You`ve obviously never shot a machine gun try it and say that. Oh and the next one they should tape explosive targets to the plane.

@ ryan99 - `velocity of speed`?

@ d_katman...

Now, that wouldn`t be fun would it? I would rather unleash a storm of hot lead than to actually use "effort" to take it down.

I agree with CrakrJak. Shotguns would be better. They just wasted alot of money on ammo. Looked like fun though.

I think it was hit a few times before it went down. A bullet or two through those cardboard thin wings wouldn`t have effected its flight much. It didn`t die til someone got a bullet through the motor or the prop.

Would`ve had better success with shotguns.

That`s not really suprising. With that range and that small of a target, you`d be a lucky man, a good shot to hit it, not to mention it`s velocity of speed. now a real plane, it is much bigger so it is harder to miss. get it? Got it! Good.

Too close for the guns? A bolt action rifle and scope would be better? I`d like to see you hit a small target moving that fast with a single shot rifle!

they`re using the wrong guns. you`d wanna use a cliped, semi auto low kick. low powered assault rifle with either a nice scope or a high fire rate. though from that distance the speed of the bullet might affect it and that could have something to do with their fail

of course its harder. that thhing is probably flying 40-50 mph. and is probably at the most 4 feet wide. at the most.

Was this the American Taliban practicing? Please, trying to shoot a 1/28th scale plane at that range? And one guy with a hand held? Did like the twin Browning 30 though. Old school!

I suppose hitting a small target is much harder than shooting down a big plane, isnt it?

"
lol.. those guys are horrible shots"

The guys with the rifles were, the guy with the AA guns were doing just fine. Can`t really make an AA gun that accurate, they`re sort of designed to be inaccurate and spread from the center of your sight; alot easier to hit actual planes that way.
