I exchanged the F-104C for the F-14D Super Tomcat for mission 5. For mission 6, I tried using the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II from 1972 (also known as the 'Warthog'). The damage from AA guns slowly overwhelms me, but it turns out that you can get your plane fixed in the far east corner of the map.
This was the first time I tried flying a plane in VR. I've flown plenty of space ships, but a real plane on Earth is different, it feels more intense and exciting. The simple but effective graphics really shine in this mode.
