Sighted: evidence of new aircraft in Halo 3

You may recall the fuss created by a group of modders last week, in which several things were discovered inside the Halo 3 beta code. There were mentions of new medals, weapons, and vehicles. In particular, the code snippets lead many to believe there would be new aircraft, specifically the Chopper, Pelican, and Phantom. Well, kiddies, throw another log on the rumor fire, as a new medal has been uncovered. This medal is awarded to those who "board an aircraft." We have to note, as did our tipster, that the medal says "aircraft" and not "Banshee." Is this proof that their are more controllable aircraft in Halo 3? Hell no, but it's starting to look that way.

Welcome to last week, guys.

This was discovered along with the flyable Pelican, Hornet, Flamethrower, smoke grenade, and all of that other stuff.

I was wondering if I was the only person who considered this old news. Those words were all uncovered from the beta code over a week ago. The "aircraft" medal is certainly an indicator of more than one flying vehicle (banshee" and it makes sense. In Halo 2 there was a human equivalent for every other covenant vehicle except for the banshee.

This is just a medal. I've acquired it before, and I've seen other people acquire it for boarding the Banshees. The only hint of course is the words "aircraft" not Banshee, but I thought it was obvious there would be a human equivilant of the Banshee.

Awesome going, man.

And for the billionth time:
This is just a demo, this code could be old or even non-existant in development by now. Insert massive grain of salt.

The correct term is Beta, but you are right about one thing, the code in this Beta is old.

i have finally found a valid view of a friend off XboxLIVE (not a fanboy etc) that said he was very disapointed with the beta in terms of graphics, so yeh i really do hope they can pull everything out of the bag like they say, and make this game look really good, and next gen. but overall its the gameplay that counts, oh and my friend who said he was disapointed said he thinks it plays really well, and will be buying it when it comes out.
