    Hey Beebop, Sad to hear about Quazi, he was such a nice guy, he helped me out more than a few times, dam ! I am also retired, 6 years now, as you say to start with it makes you wonder how you had time to work ! It would be great to have you and any of the old crew fly with us again mate....

    MS Sidewinder2

    Just wondered if anyone would like my Sidewinder Joystick for free ? It worked just fine for 46 but has a centring issue in BOS. Probably nothing wrong with the stick itself.

    TOAD, are you using Win10 ? Just wondered if you could run the Sidewinder in Win7 flying BoS no problem but had issues when you tried it in Win 10 ?

    Laptop required

    Hi fellas, a good mate of mine is after a second hand laptop. He can go up to £150 and would like Windows office on it. He only wants to use it for work related stuff and probably won’t even go online with it. I said I would ask you guys and see what the response was, thanks....... Mick.

    Ok thanks, I will pass on the info Arjen... He is a plasterer at the moment but is ex Army and has been doing some bodyguard work for the last few years with a view to running training courses with another ex Army guy.

    Thanks mate, I am afraid that beneath this resilient exterior lies the soul of a soft squishy dad who is going to miss his ( not so little) buddy immensely! Pass me a tissue Tito.........

    I’ll be in your neck of the woods Nick, delivering Marc and all his gubbins to Uni on Saturday.......
  13. Crash suggested that Tuesday would become GBS night when the Bodenplatte module was released and that seemed a popular idea. However if enough chaps want it to happen now, why not ? I am fine with it Sidly.

    Nice job! Your RC building skills were useful I am guessing...

    The moon doing an impersonation of Mars Swoop ! Great picture mate. I have been to our local observatory twice with a friend lately and on the last occasion we looked at the moon through the 7 inch refractor telescope. I could clearly see mountains, canyons and craters especially at the terminator. It was like looking through a heat haze off a hot road surface with everything dancing about which was down to Earths atmospherics I was told.

    Surving RAF Pilots from the Battle of Britain

    Excellent to know that some of these chaps are still alive today especially considering that they were probably all a little surprised to still be alive in 1946 !

    Geoffrey Wellum Obituary from The Times

    I read the book a few years ago Nick, your post has inspired me to read it again. To think that this man was grateful to have been "of use" at some point in his life is almost comical. In my opinion he was of more "use" than any ten of us ! Thanks mate !

    All debriefy and things

    Ah Swoop, if you heard the words “ dancing queen” that was Sid talking to me mate 😉

    Thanks so much for putting that together Chris, a great way to give friends and family a taste of Flying Legends mate. Bravo !
  23. Just an idea which I have run by FT already. What do you guys think about running multiple short 1946 coops on a Sunday when we are due to fly BOX on the Tuesday which follows it. Then we run a long 1946 mission on the Sunday followed by a 1946 multiple short coop Tuesday. This would mean that we would have one multiple short coop session every week either on a Sunday or Tuesday and a FT special 1946 long mission every other week on a Sunday. BOX would remain every other Tuesday. Your thoughts please chaps.....
  24. I have no problem with Tuesdays being an exclusive BOX evening Arthur but I also have no idea when that will happen. When it does then I suppose we could still alternate Sunday sessions as described .
  25. Not yet as far as I am aware.
