Hi Elric

our official op is on Sunday so if you cannot do that then sadly it is no good.
In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

Hi Elric,

I have received your Pilot Application - but have not processed it yet as it is best tow ait for your response to Tom's comment above. As he says our official weekly operation is on Sunday evening 9pm GMT - so if that will not be something you can attend, Tangmere Pilots may not be the best home for you sadly :Sad

Then I must have looked it wrong in Google. I think we both have Berlin time. If it starts at 22:00 I think I could try a family negotitation ;-) to play from 21:30 to 23:30 Spanish time. Thanks for your comment.

Hello again!
Negotiation successful. I can play from 21:30 to 23:30 Madrid time (20:30 to 22:30 London) on Sunday.
It's OK?

Reggie, forward the application then we'll let Merlin sort him out.

Muy bien, amigo.

If I ever speak Spanish with you expect every third word to be in French. I mix the languages now that I spend much of the year there.

Enjoy the OTU's. Relax and have fun. The Tuesday and Friday practice days are a lot of fun but the Sunday missions are spectacular. Lots of clever twists. I don't know how they come up with new stuff week after week but it's always fresh and challenging.

Don't bother putting your name on stuff in the fridge. It'll just give someone perverse enjoyment to nick your lunch. Just label your ham sandwich container "Organic seaweed salad" or "goat yogurt" or some such and no one will touch it.

Well my sandwiches would be of real ham (Spanish) but marked as garlic and olive oil. For beer (Leffe or Grimbergen) I'll put something like gazpacho with high garlic content. ;-)

I'll try to speak english. Probably a lot of fun for all of you in that. I suspect I'm the only Spanish here, no danger of scenes like the No. 303 Polish Fighter Squadron ones. :Angel
