I am pleased to report that Kolo completed A/F 2 with his eyes closed tonight. His eyes must have been closed as he didn't spot anything until almost ramming it - a perfect candidate I thought.

Anyway, A/F 3 next week.
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.

'Almost' ramming other aircraft? We'll fix that. Hey, @Eddie , come show this guy how it's done.

What do you mean?? There is a big difference between ramming and taraning!

Yes, one is a pilot who shouts "Taran!" and intentionally crashes into the enemy. And then there's Eddie. :laugh2

Sorry, I had my seeing-eye-dog in the shop, so I was flying by feel... Thus the scratches and dings and the landing ground-loop... I Need to fill the windscreen de-icer bottle so I can wash the Peshka's off the Perspex.
