    Greetings! This blog entry is an initial hello from me, and a means of seeing how it all works under the new Invision Communities software. I have to admit, I'm impressed at how well this system is going to work. And intimidated at how much additional learning I have. Some of that was expected. And it's interesting to see the other members jumping in and giving the new site a good run. I think this purchase by the WW squadron was a good choice, one that will power the squadron's web presence well into the future. So let's kick the tires a bit.

    The WW is strong in this one. Great to see that you are getting active again! Been a long time since we've flown together.

    Just found this topic while perusing the Great Battles forums. Haven't had a chance to review the entire document yet but there certainly seems to be a dearth of good information inside. You can grab the handbook from here: https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&v=S9PikTCUjCM&redir_token=Kn5aQEatRahd_4B_XPLTtSyl8p18MTU0ODM4ODM2NkAxNTQ4MzAxOTY2&q=https%3A%2F%2Fdrive.google.com%2Ffile%2Fd%2F1JwWH98LX5W0HWFH2IyoSR0OBq0LhVWP6%2Fview%3Fusp%3Dsharing

    It's looking great, but I think Goober is thinking about making racing stripes on the new carpet by dragging his ass...

    Chapter 1 The beginning.. After my reassignment from the Russian front back to the British Commonwealth Air Training Program in Brandon, Manitoba, I had to get there. The RCAF would only provide transportation from Gibraltar, I had to get there on my own. As the Turkish airlines had a JU-52 at their disposal but no pilots to fly it, this seemed like a good way to at least get to Istanbul. The flight was exhausting, 3 1/2 hours over the ocean to Sevastopol was the first leg in cloudy conditions, of course as soon as I landed the sun broke through! Zeus jumped in the back and took over two seats to sleep, seeing as the aircraft had no rear gunner position for him to take over. The trip was quite uneventful and I will be leaving for Istanbul the next day. (flights done in X-plane from actual airfields to actual airfields in real time, no time compression) Chapter_1.MP4

    This morning was the start of the 36th running of the 1000 mile Yukon Quest race, starting from Whitehorse, Yukon and finishing in Fairbanks, Alaska. A brief history, If you're interested in checking out this grueling race along with real time tracking of the mushers and their teams, here's the link: https://www.yukonquest.com/ Conditions this morning were a little nippy, -37c and -42c with the wind chill, heavy ice fog, made for a cold wait standing around for the 11am start! Managed to get out wander around Shipyards Park waiting for the race to kick off. Lots off folks out to see the start all bundled up to fend off the cold. Got a few shots of the first team out of the chute then moved on to the Yukon River to take some other shots along the shore. Didn't stay out very long, darn camera battery drained real quick (40 minutes), good thing I remember to bring a spare that I kept tucked inside my down vest. Anyway here's a few shots of the race start and the first few mushers out.

    Lots of folks at Il2 forum recommend that for starters. I've the saitek x52 with ch pedals, but that is more expensive without any added benefits. The TM offering will get you off the ground just fine... That and the Track IR. Don't forget a comfy headset with Mic.

    @WWReaper Welcome home, sir! The new digs are so new the paint is a bit drippy in areas. But your bunk will be cleaned and ready for you. Won't make you hot-bunk with Frylock, that just wouldn't be right. And Goober has been more busy with Dubya's bunk for some reason. I don't want to know why...

    S! Okay, so hit a snag on the import of old forum posts. Sent in a help request, and am holding short on doing any more stuff until I get that portion of things sorted. Sandy
