Re: Hello

Hiya Stu. Finding you on TS last Friday was a very nice surprise.
Everybody relates to having less time for this hobby, but hey, some is better than none at all! Great to have you back in our 'hood.

I expect to fly a little CLoD later tonight, so hope to see you then or else sometime soon.

Re: Getting to Know Blitz Session

Just returned from Christmas in Austin, and learned that the weekend hiking/camping trip to the Guadalupe Mountains has been canceled, so the rest of my week is definitely pretty open now! I'll take a look at your guide tonight or tomorrow & try to get started on the basics with COD Blitz. Understan...

Annual Holiday Sale: BOK/M/S, COD BLITZ, ROF

A great opportunity here to save if you want to pick up anything for your flying pleasure. Pass the word! :D Note: If you already bought COD (at any time in the past), then BLITZ is free for you & can already be found in your online store. From Jason: ----------------------- Dear Pilots, Our Holiday...

Re: Tactical Air War (for IL-2 BOS/BOM)

Ah, I'm catching on to this Discord thing, gradually. I see we need BOTH a handle AND a Discord "tag number" to send a friend request.
My tag number is #0795.

Re: Tactical Air War (for IL-2 BOS/BOM)

Discord may be the thing eventually, but for today I suggest just meeting as normal on FI teamspeak. Not sure Aaron has/uses Discord either.

Off for a bike ride; plan to join you guys right after my post-ride shower.

Re: Tactical Air War (for IL-2 BOS/BOM)

Hi Frank, thanks. No, no impact in my area except for 'refugees' staying in shelters in our area as well as many other cities in the state. I do have a number of friends & family that Harvey affected though. Some lost most or all posesssions, but living through it is the main thing. Those losses are...

Re: Tactical Air War (for IL-2 BOS/BOM)

OK, I've registered boys. Please add me Vin. Will fly a sortie or 2 tonight if I find time; plan to do more tomorrow (evening your time) unless plans change. Hope to fly with any others who can join. I have downloaded Discord. Have either of you used it? TAW admins recommend it; apparently they have...

Re: Random Expert Server

Apparently the Random Expert server is down right now. It's not in the server list, and saw some conversation about that in the server's forum. When I flew it this week, the Germans were across the Volga & had pushed the Reds to the edge of the map, so my guess is they won and we're just waiting on ...

Re: Random Expert Server

Sounds good Vin. I'll hunt for you. Any idea what time? FNBF starts at 1900 UTC and still has room for more people. I signed up for 'reserve' (i.e. 'maybe'). So, I can skip that altogether & just fly Random Expert, or fly FNBF a little first if you're going to be later than 1900. Or of course, you c...

Re: Random Expert Server

Good to know how to level bomb once in a while, but you don't need the bomb sight to dive bomb. Just start high (>2500m recommended, clouds allowing), keep your speed up, and drop 'em all in a single pass, then head home. Over highly defended targets you'll need to do some weaving around before & af...

Re: Random Expert Server

Haven't viewed the movies, but I will - thanks for posting Vin! Yeah, we need to do a nice group effort together next time we can work it out. Ideally we will communicate with the team & all concentrate on 1-2 targets at a time, using local air superiority to wipe them out one by one. Meanwhile I am...

Re: Random Expert Server

Thanks Vin, I managed to join so there are 3 of us there now. For any interested, most of the 'how it works' for this server is found under the 'Info' tab on the same site Vin's links take you to, and only take 5-10 minutes to read. One important thing: if you go >7 days without flying a sortie on t...

Re: Still alive

Didn't realize you'd moved, Vin. Congrats on the new place! Hope to see you online again before long, but we all know getting settled is a handful, and it sounds like there could be quite a few 'honey do's' in your immediate future! :lol: Hope it all goes smoothly, mate.

Re: Piper on a roundabout?

Missed this earlier. Very creative idea! Would certainly create the need for HUGE changes in takeoff and approach designs for airspace. Lots of plusses and minuses to be considered. Will be interesting to see if it goes anywhere. Thanks for the post Adam!
