    Those Stukas sure are beautiful! Sad to have missed the fun. The good news is that only the cabin is affected. House is clean, for now.

    I am going to have to bow out, sadly. Discovered a termite problem in the cabin next to my house this week, and the inspector just called and will come today in the middle of the mission time. So, no fun for me, and likely a big expense!

    I’ll take a Stuka, please.

    VKB, Still...

    I just bought the VKB pedals, before they became available again from VKB. I’m loving them. Excellent pedals. I bought both the regular Gladiator and the Gadiator Pro, and this recent pedal purchase from the Xplane store. They don’t seem to sell the pro anymore. https://store.x-plane.org/VKB-Controllers_c_295.html

    Thanks, Razor. The other Heinkel pilot didn't show, so I wound up flying the Junkers (and getting killed while loading wounded soldiers....is there no respect for the red cross anymore?!?! 🙂). Great fun! Thanks again Tip for these wonderful missions.

    I’m going to be able to make it. Stick me in a Heineken with Netscape. But don’t expect us not to perhaps get lost! And it’s been a while since I’ve flown the beast.

    Give Luse the Ju-52, and if I can make it, I’ll fill in on the Axis side where needed, perhaps in the He-111, which still seems to need pilots.

    Put me as maybe for the Ju-52 then. Spits seem to be filling up fine.

    I should probably just be put on a standby list, since I may be helping my som move into his new apartment this Friday. But, if not, I can fill in where needed, perhaps in a Spit, or the other Ju-52.

    You may indeed be having fun, but that’s not “just” what is happening. Many are trying to reserve slots before slots are there to reserve. Line forms tomorrow. 😉

    I think Tip works very hard on these missions, and if he says plane sets are not finalized and signups will be Sunday, all of us can be patient and wait to raise our virtual hands and ask for planes until then.

    I believe Tip said signups will be this Sunday.

    LOST HOPE - My first scripted campaign flying BF109 G2

    Hmmmm....doesn’t sound like a problem with this campaign in any way. Are you complaining that the AI is set to Veteran or something like that? Or just about the AI in general? AI is hard to get right in any sim. But I don’t think they are too good in this one. Isn't AI skill level set by the difficulty setting you choose?

    Embarrassing flight for me. I stuck to my flight leader like glue, but we never saw much to attack. I’m so used to flying Axis that when we finally saw some Russian T-34 tanks, I quickly dropped my bombs on them. Luckily, my aim was bad and I did no damage! And my flight was polite enough not to call me out for attacking my own tanks!! Then I was shot down by a sneaky 109. At least I destroyed two bridges. Thanks again, TX_Tip, for all the hard work and hosting. Great to be back in the virtual skies fighting again!

    "Fire and Ice" - Bf 110 E-2 Scripted Campaign

    Climbing is tricky. If you’re behind the power curve and not on the step, trying to stay with a group in a climb will cook your engines quickly. Try to build extra speed in the takeoff phase before the climb gets going. Get above the group if possible. Then you can adjust to stay with them with a little excess power.
