Starshina Ducky leaves Kalach

Post by Merlin » Thu Aug 02, 2018 12:38 pm

Comrades I am pleased to announce Starshina Ducky has completed A/F4, using his laser-like vision having identified three He111's he noticed one of the gunners was holding a copy of 'Big and Bouncy' no doubt discarded by Bunny. He then set upon the said 111.

Moggy will be assigning you an aircraft shortly. The skins are available from Official Tangmere Downloads room.


points to remember:

- Don't shoot down Tom, some still think its a compulsory right of passage on completing OTU
- Be sure to have the right skin on for ops as the political officer is an unrelenting stickler for the rules, accumulate five Political Officer displeasure points and you will get shot.
- If you do anything exceptional make it a good one or they will never let you forget it.

The Motherland has great need of your talents, Welcome to the Tangmere Pilots.

Good show, Ducky. We have four more ops in P-39's after summer break and then we'll be flying mystery ships!

Thank you all, it was a joy to fly OTU with Merlin and I hope I can get to know you all better soon.

A few introductory words on myself, I have mostly flown in Rise of Flight and only recently purchases IL2 BoS with the intent of flying with an community, as such I am pretty excited to be here.

On the behind the screen side, I am a Canadian living in Ottawa on an intermittent basis (I split my time between Canada and Geneva, Switzerland, where I pursue a PhD in Security Studies). Prior to that, I spent ten wonderful years with the Canadian Armed Forces as an armored commander. Other than that, I have a lovely wife and a Whippet.

Finally, I do not have access to most of the forum. I am not sure if that is intended but I cannot download the skins as I do not have permission to access them.

Looking forward to flying with all of you,

Ducky

Congrats Ducky, see you on Ops. I’m sure one of the forum admins will sort out your forum permissions as you should have full access.

Good show Ducky!
Also great to hear that someone else is passionate for security studies here. I'm finishing my master's degree in Brno next year so I'm looking forward to have some interesting discussions in the meantime between sweeping the nazi/bolshevik gits from the skies. 🙂

Welcome Ducky. All the Canadians we have had are jolly nice chaps. Glad to have you with the fighters.
I have been given command of the P39s with Gosho for this campaign. We will sort out section assignments when furlough is finished. Worth getting used to the P39 climbing at optimum speed and lean fuel settings to give more time on patrol.

If the A20 boys offer to take you for a ride avoid eye contact move awsy as quickly as possible with your back to the wall.

Welcome, Ducky! Looking forward to flying with you on OPS - the fighter force always needs more fresh recruits (blink-blink) :D
