Starshina Tuffy has now polished off AF 2 and 3 just one more to go, he is still keen to fly bombers.

Good show. One more to go. The A-20 is a fine bird.

I was thinking that we need 1 more bomber pilot to join our ranks.

Carpet bombing does require a fair number of bombers.
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.

The A-20 does seem to fly particularly well on one engine. After nursing a 110 engine-out towards home and having it wallow like a cow (in winter, no less when she should fly best), a single engine A-20 without having the prop feathered and having lost the critical (left) engine hummed along in mid-summer with nary a care.

Yeah as long as you're careful and keep the speed above 135 mph. She flies well on 1 engine but this can lead you into a false sense of security as she gets a bit feisty on low speed approaches for landing, trimming helps with this though.
