No reason for it not to be known by every TP.

Re: Recommended books

Sparky check PMs for email addy. Novels are the antithesis of Instant Gratification. May be no gratification at all, except the process of creating them. Imago is about my 4th one, and the only one I seriously sought a publisher for. There's a strange learning curve to it--you struggle along for wha...

Re: Recommended books

Fritz, you mean there's another writer in the TP closet? Yes, revision is the bane. Yes, it is also the balm. To give an idea of the time frame for the submission process these days, I sent 3 chapters and a query off to Penguin/Random House on January 11, 2017. The request for full MS came on Septem...

Re: Recommended books

Sparky, you mean the TPs are top heavy with two novelists? With a house in NW France?--impressive. Normandy, any chance? I've been across and around France about six times I think. I have a friend with a villa in Montecchio, (not Montevecchio as Google will try to lead you to) Italy, near Orvieto, b...

Re: Recommended books

Thanks chaps: It's an exciting if excruciating time waiting for the verdict. For the first time in my life, I have absolutely no say in the direction of my life. It's Destiny's Toggle. Either on or off. Ops. I'd love to get back on. I've been practicing with the 109G mostly, but with my wanderings i...

Re: Recommended books

Highly Recommended: The Imago, the novel by John Strider Nation, Currently with Random/Penguin House in New York City. Not an airplane in it, but compensated for by three drop-dead gorgeous gals, each in her time called 'The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence': Kati, media darling of modern Florence. ...

Re: Sgt Sylkhy arrives at a train station near to Kalach

Welcome Silk from across the Big Pond.
Isn't there also a 'silkie' from Irish mythology or something--a seal-like mermaid I think?
Anyway, welcome to the chaotic skies over Russia. Nothing to it. Like using a band saw--close your eyes and go as fast as possible.

Something for No6 OTU?

Maybe OTU needs something like this--retroed of course for our kind of planes:

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox ... rojector=1

This would make a fun Spit/Hurri, etc, simulator, or more properly a Tiger Moth and a Harvard.

Could go through all the training routine then. =p~

Super

Great vidio Merlin. I joined the CHAA (Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association) last year and I'm hoping to get a ride this summer. They have more Harvards now than God. (God only has 3, they have 8.) They also have a Tiger Moth. Members get rides or even qualify to fly these planes. A nifty bunch of ...

Thanks Jacko: I have to confess that the level of technology I was, and am, interested in, was disappearing about the time I was a boy: prop driven planes, steam locomotives, a wood burning stove for heat, scratchy old vinyls on turntables, (and we didn't get a phone in the house til I was 17, which...

Lili Marlene

Gents: Since the song "Lili Marlene", sang each night at 9 PM by Lale Andersen, from Radio Belgrade, was the theme song for both sides during the North African desert campaign (Goebbels hated it as did Andersen but popular demand forced it to continue) it seems appropriate that it should be replayed...

Wooooo

Wooooo . . . .
This sounds like the "Dawn Patrol" filming sequence in "The Aviator". Lots of dust, smoke, diving and colliding planes and other forms of confusion. Can't wait.
