    Restored airplanes aren't a good indication of paint jobs on WW2 airplanes. The owners can do it any way they like. Only pictures taken during the war are relevant, really. All the ones I've seen Chromate Yellow.

    Every color shot I have show it all yellow. Wheel cover, too. I just checked the color section of Warren Bodie's book on the P-47, to be sure. Yellow. But, what the hell. Maybe skinners can fix that.

    DD today?

    Me, I'm just looking forward to being "amused." I have a feeling they are going to give us the option of putting clowns in the cockpits. I'm sure of it! That would certainly amuse me.

    He's done up in late war garb. The AAF began replacing the old A-2 jacket with a fabric one that was fleece lined. The B-10. From the color and the collar it appears to be that one. He also seems to have the Berger G-suit that 9th Air Force fighter pilots began to be equipped with around the time of D-Day.

    You have to hand it to these guys. Really. They read that post where everyone was complaining about how old the pilot looks, so they changed him. I like that.

    7 1/2 hours at War Emergency Power!? Damn. Good Ole R-2800. That engine was in the Hellcat and the Corsair, too. If you had to fly for hours over water, that's the engine you wanted to be sitting behind.

    On the topic of Thunderbolts

    Guys, overclaiming was rampant by all of the air forces. Not out of deceit, but because during the heat of battle, through the smoke and the flames and the stinging sweat in their eyes, they actually believed what they saw. They were sure they blew up that tank, shot down that bomber, and even sunk that ship. But what they saw was an explosion right near the tank, and the bomber was shot up, but made it home, and the fires on the burning ship weren't really that bad and they were put out..and the ship docked back at it's home port. How many times were you absolutely positive that you saw something...but you were wrong? Imagine that during the hell and fear of combat. It happened a lot. No sense in arguing about. it. Could it have happened? Not impossible, I suppose. But probably not very often.

    FW 190 Down

    That last picture shows the airplane in one piece. It was probably still saveable at that point. But with traffic being what it is over there (Really, it's beyond words. You would think I was exaggerating), it took the fire department a long time to get there. I'm sure.

    That's sounds promising. I, too, am an old timer and was hoping this would come before I was just a memory. It sounds as if we may be seeing this sooner than some think.

    Any P-51 groups out there!

    I think moving the sim over to the Western Front was a good move for the game. We're going to see a lot of people coming over. Hell, that's why I did it!

    FW 190 Down

    Right! You have to love the way the press, not knowing anything about aviation, writes up these stories. The headline reads, "Vintage German Airplane explodes....." And then goes on to say that it's a North American SNJ.

    Fw-190! Really now, someone needs to have his sim pilot certificate revoked, immediately. As soon as I saw the cowling and landing gear I knew it was a T-6. I used to fly out of Van Nuys. It's where I got my pilots license. The Condor Legion is a group of T-6/SNJ owners who have their planes painted up in the various colors of WW2 air forces. Used to see them all the time. Too bad.

    This sim has been a favorite of mine, and it seems that it will be for some time to come.
