I remember her breaking down the tail-markings of all the IJA units, so they made sense.

 

Jeez, it's got to be like 15 years since those days...

 

Yep - let's see I was flying with her in 2002 - 2004'ish days, right in there.

Her name slips my mind right now...been too damn long. 

Kelly I think - came to me later at random.

Whatever became of Sky Chimp?

 

Looks like he has an account. Hasn't been active for quite some time, though.

Methalushco's missions and the Crop Duster doing cartwheels in his IL-2, literally.

Jane's WWII Fighters followed by European Air War then M$ Combat Flight Simulator 2 then I found the IL-2 demo.  I loved the IL-2 and kept coming back to the P-39 trying to figure out how to avoid flat spinning the darn thing.  I finally found myself just flying around the map and being amazed at the graphics and FM fidelity.  As soon as the game came out I bought it and within a week I stopped playing anything else.

Eventually I met Zeus-cat and Dubbo who taught me the FMB.  We formed The Hellhounds squadron and mostly flew P-to-P with me hosting most Saturday nights.  ZC, Dubbo and Quazi (the tech moderator on the Ubsoft Forums), met up several times including once at the USAF museum in Dayton OH.  I met a lot of great folks online and in real life. 

Later Gamekeeper offered me a position as Admin over at Mission 4 Today (a post I still hold) but I slowly came over here and except for the occasional foray in B.A.T. with some friends and Admining at M4T, I am here to stay.

I started with the original IL-2 and Forgoten Battles about 20 years ago (on keyboard). Then Pacific Fighters and first cheap joystick. Couple years later LOMAC and after that a long break. Untill about three years ago when I discovered Great Battles and later DCS.

I've posted the IL2:1946 Mugshot Poster before in a similar thread.

 

Here it is again but slightly edited: Forgot to add LeBillfish but she is part of the group now (right side at the bottom, with sunglasses)

I’ve been on this forum longer than any other since I first joined one in 1999. I’ve always been Rjel for better or worse. Met some pretty cool folks along the way. Met  some of the other kind too. This place still seems fresh after all this time. That’s a credit to the members of the community and the team for all their hard work.

Flew several times on WarClouds server before the mods hit in 2008 IIRC. Spent most of my time on Battle-Fields servers and on organized events.

 

Still use the same callsign to this day. Mostly thanks to IL-2 1946. :)

So many strange and weird looking faces in there... no way I'd ever let them look after my cats!

Thank you IL-2. If not for you, these people would be out on the streets scaring the children.

Many children think I am Santa.

Let's see if you can pick me out of that photo montage.

I used for it a picture of you standing in a garage or something like that. Wasn't that picture taken by a student photography or a professional one for a project?

That is what I remember of the Ubizoo thread.

 

You might look like Santa but on that same 'mug shot collection' the guy on the far right in the middle resembles Ron Jeremy. :biggrin:

Wow, good memory!  Yeah it was taken for his photo class at the University.  Sadly, I am even more grey now.

Fish is in that photo.

 

To this day the best online pilot I’ve ever seen.

BTW, that amphibious tractor is owned by a local collector, and is one of about half a dozen that are still operable.

 

It appeared in Clint Eastwood's 'Flags of Our Fathers", and still wears the Iwo Jima paint scheme from the movie.  I'll post a better shot of it later tonight.
