    Link: Little Plane, Big Machine Guns - Strangely, it is harder to take down a flimsy model airplane with big artillery than it is to shoot down a real plane.

    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.

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

    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!

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

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

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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