Feldwebel Sparky arrives at Kalach

Post by Merlin » Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:18 am

Sparky completed AF1 after some challenges with 3.01 leaving the map looking all blue and white. However in spite of flying in near IFR conditions he located the HE111's and reminded them whose back yard they were flying in. A great sense of humour, kinda reminds me of Nummy (Where are you Nummy ? Definitely fuel bowser duty when you return)

I look forward to AF2 next week.

Welcome Sparky to the Tangmere Pilots

Nummy on steroids I thought! That's not necessarily a bad thing but can be tiring especially for us reserved Brits and our mildly more loquacious (my word of the day) types.

Well done for AF1.
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.

"click, click"

[Two clicks of the mic button, my attempt to be even less wordy than the abbreviated "Roj" fighter jocks substitute for '"Roger"].

Thanks everyone and Merlin and Silk and I look forward to getting my coolers working. I played a bit as Silk's gunner and that was fun too.

Hello Sparky have fun and prosper.

They did great work refitting AF1 after BoS update 3.001 required extensive rework (that was my impression) on the fly and they finished in 'rabbit out of the hat' time so Eddie and I could fly as scheduled.

I ordered MFG Crosswinds a month ago but they won't be here until May so I picked up some Thrustmaster rudder pedals to get me through the waiting period. Alas, they slid across the wooden floor whenever I tried to taxi so I bought a couple pieces of plywood and glued the little rudder pads to the plywood. Tomorrow night, Friday, I'll try them out.
