In Civilization 5, I have built multiple aircrafts such as Bombers, Zeros, and Paratroopers. I move my planes to my city closest to my enemy (on a different continent), but my planes cannot make an air strike on the enemy, because it is so far away.

Is it possible to move aircraft overseas?

Either do one of two things:

  1. Establish a beachhead by conquering one of his cities and use it as a base to begin bombing others.
  2. Research and build an aircraft carrier and use it as a mobile base (of doom) to launch air strikes.

Thanks, I think I'll go the carrier path. – avestar101 Jul 21 '13 at 3:18
