  1. I would love this. Just sell us planes for awhile. Breguet XIV please.
  2. FLYING LESSONS Mr Anemone: Mr Chigger. So, you want to learn to fly? Mr Chigger: Yes. Mr Anemone: Right, well, up on the table, arms out, fingers together, knees bent... Mr Chigger: No, no, no. Mr Anemone: (very loudly) Up on the table! (Mr Chigger gets on the table) Arms out, fingers together, knees bent, now, head well forward. Now, flap your arms. Go on, flap, faster... faster... faster... faster, faster, faster, faster - now jump! (Mr Chigger jumps and lands on the floor) Rotten. Rotten. You're no bloody use at all. You're an utter bloody wash-out. You make me sick, you weed! Mr Chigger: Now look here... Mr Anemone: All right, all right. I'll give you one more chance, get on the table... Mr Chigger: Look, I came here to learn how to fly an aeroplane. Mr Anemone: A what? Mr Chigger: I came here to learn how to fly an aeroplane. Mr Anemone: (sarcasticaly) Oh, 'an aeroplane'. Oh, I say, we are grand, aren't we? (imitation posh accent) 'Oh, oh, no more buttered scones for me, mater. I'm off to play the grand piano'. 'Pardon me while I fly my aeroplane.' Now get on the table! Mr Chigger: Look. No one in the history of the world has ever been able to fly like that. Mr Anemone: Oh, I suppose mater told you that while you were out riding. Well, if people can't fly what am I doing up here? Mr Chigger: You're on a wire. Mr Anemone: Oh, a wire. I'm on a wire, am I? Mr Chigger: Of course you're on a bloody wire. Mr Anemone: I am not on a wire. I am flying. Mr Chigger: You're on a wire. Mr Anemone: I am flying. Mr Chigger: You're on a wire. Mr Anemone: I'll show you whether I'm on a wire or not. Give me the 'oop. Mr Chigger: What? Mr Anemone: Oh, I don't suppose we know what an 'oop is. I suppose pater thought they were a bit common, except on the bleedin' croquet lawn. Mr Chigger: Oh, a hoop. Mr Anemone: 'Oh an hoop.' (taking hoop) Thank you, your bleeding Highness. Now. Look. (he waves hoop over head and feet) Mr Chigger: Go on, right the way along. Mr Anemone: All right, all right, all right. (he moves hoop all the way along himself allowing the wire to pass through obvious gap in hoop's circumference). Now, where's the bleeding wire, then? Mr Chigger: That hoop's got a hole in. Mr Anemone: Oh Eton and Madgalene. The hoop has an hole in. Of course it's got a hole in, it wouldn't be a hoop otherwise, would it, mush!
  3. Like many, I vote for all the Italian and French aircraft listed. Restricted to one choice, it would be the M.S. 406. Blackburn Skua for a Brit replacement.
  4. Ah! That helps me a bunch, thanks!
  5. I'm thinking of adding a second monitor so I can keep pdf instructions for the different planes in view while I fly. Will it need to be the same resolution as my main monitor? Will I need an additional graphics card? How do you control two monitors at once?
  6. That's beautiful, I'm going to give it a try.
  7. I am drawn to lost causes in general and no cause was more lost than France 1940 - I would love to play as a poilu. I did feel a little sorry for the German with the anti-tank rifle taking on the Char B!
  8. I played and liked almost all those mentioned. I especially liked the solo Avalon Hill board game "B17 Queen of the Skies." I first encountered computer games on the Atari ST platform; The Intel PCs were at first too feeble. It was completely new and very exciting. The first time I grasped the old WICO Bat-Handle joystick and banked I actually got airsick. This is how we did it in 1966: I really need them to get on that Pacific Theater pretty soon.
  9. I'm reading this right now, but Santa brought me a dozen new titles - have to step it up.
