Faces of the flying community!


Recommended Posts

Hi to all

I would like to read and write much more here and to "fly" on servers with you.

I just discovered this thread and was a surprise to know I'm not the only person over 40 to enjoy Il2BOS

And not the only one with a little guy!

Here I am with my little boy at Historical Museum of Italian Air Force, in Bracciano.

He really love this "red airplane" (as he named it), the Macchi-Castoldi M.C. 72 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macchi_M.C.72 

This is the only time I post a photo where is my boy, I love this community.

Merry Christhmas to all of you

Congrats Luke! :good:

 

Won't take more than three years until you'll hear "Oh, daddy's simming!"

 

Yeah, when we are already wrapping him in airplane blankets, I can see where this is headed. :lol:

Mmmm....Canada.....

 

Do you live in the bit that goes to -20 or the bit that goes to -30 or the bit that goes to -40?:wacko:

 

 

That pic was at -26. I remember the temperature and the swearing. Gorgeous day, but chilly. Coldest I ever worked was shoveling a roof at night at -39. I was basically wearing a spacesuit. It was quite nice, really, but you don't tend to move too fast at that temperature. ;)

Yeah good point.  That was a couple years ago,  do you think I should delete it 🤔

Well, it's up to everyones personal judgment. I wouldn't post pictures from my family on a public board. At least I would pixel the faces. But that is up to You. :)

Thought I should finally put my photo up as I’ve been playing/using this sim since the First iteration way back with the initial of IL-2 Sturmovik in 2001.
Due to living in a rural location in Northern N.S.W.  Australia I have hence to zero internet speed so playing online is a flicker fest and not to be attempted the only real downside of living in a rural seaside Australian location. I’m nearly 65 and was told to finally grow up, by my 22yr old daughter to who apparently knows it all as she is studying for a masters in coastal marine science; But secretly I’m so glad she can focus on that and also listened to me when I finished my environmental science/tourism management degrees to get as much study done whilst still young and not like me in my 50’s and her friends who work on cafes and hotels. Sorry I digress. Over the last 3 years my wife of 24 years has passed away and I seem to have developed lung problems with COPD so I wonder what I’ll be flying in the great beyond in a year or two (Maybe but I’m a strong old bugger with a history of beating back accidents and illnesses so stay tuned), Rave & Rant over signin out

Hang in there Goanna!

 

Very sorry to hear about your wife my friend.

 

Also - I understand about daughters - mine is only 14 but she thinks she's 24 🙂

Daughters gotta love them but they Know how to pull on Daddy's heart strings  and they sure "do know everything" until they realise they don't and need your help begrudgingly.... all part of the transition to adulthood we all went through but its more pronounced these days in the social-media age

Hang in there mate

and thanks for you thoughts Cujo_1970

This is me at last weekends Flying Legends event at Duxford :-

Cockpit was really cozy, VR in Il2 is really good, but the real thing somehow made everything a little more snug, everything was in easy reach.

This is my face - I've been using it for over three decades now and still haven't had any notable issues!

You may notice this is the exact same face on my avatar. This is because I do not actually own a vintage WW2 flying cap, alas, but I do know my way around photoshop :biggrin:
