  1. Steady on Arthur - we won't have any of that sort of thing around here thank you.
  2. Tom has asked me to post some news relating to the discussions and polls recently and the new schedule which will be run initially on a trial basis with a view to it becoming permanent in the fullness of time. So, after due consideration, starting from Sunday 16th June (this coming Sunday) the flying schedule will be changing to; Sunday - GBS Monday - IL-2 '46 Tuesday - GBS Wednesday - CloD Thursday - DCS I have also been asked to point out that this is NOT necessarily the final version and there is always room for changes to be made, but the key thing is that if you want to ensure that your preferred sim continues to flourish then numbers are what's required. Cheers all Jabo
  3. It's too bad you couldn't stay for the second day Dave, it was definitely an experience! Thanks to everyone who was able to attend on either day! Photos to follow once I've had a sleep.

    I was listening to this as well Arthur despite Radio 4 not being my first choice of station. Worth a listen!
  5. Crash and I will be there on Tuesday - I'll be at the Classic Wings marquee as I'm playing photographer for the day. Tom, Chris and I will be there on Wednesday. If you want a lift to & from the field on Wednesday, let me know which hotel you're at and I'll come pick you up. Food and beers on Tuesday night too maybe?
  6. Crash, Fen and I are at Duxford next week (Tuesday for Dave, Wednesday for Tom and both days for me). If you're coming then, you'll need to book a ticket online before arriving (https://www.iwm.org.uk/)- the D-Day 75th Anniversary flypast of DC-3s and fighters over Normandy is departing from Duxford on Wednesday - hopefully 38 Daks will be taking part (There's 13 on the ground there as I write this) If you're into Armor, then the Tank Museum at Bovington is worth a visit too.
  7. It doesn't work well for me I'm afraid, but as I said previously, any decision should be made democratically for the good of the group and not necessarily for specific individuals. As such, if the changes suit the majority then so be it. ~S~ chaps Jabo
  8. Thanks for the hard work on this Tom, it's very much appreciated.
  9. You could change gears based on forward/backward movements of the stick like a semi-auto gearbox?

    Like the NZ flag you have there...
  11. So for what it's worth (and I appreciate I'm in the minority here) 1. CloD 1. '46 3. BoX 4. DCS Any day but Friday, Saturday, Sunday difficult to commit to. Oh, and I won't be investing in VR as I have enough trouble dealing with AR. Cheers J
  12. That's pretty unequivocal.
  13. That looks pretty bad - Is the guy who's been jailed an employee of ED?
  14. It would be nice to see a different Horseman display mount this year, but it's all good!
  15. Having talked things over with a few people on TS, the idea was put forward that perhaps we should swap the regular nights for GBS and '46 so GBS got the Sunday primetime slot but 46 would still be available for the luddites (myself included). If attendance for '46 continues to dry up then we could maybe look at 2 nights a week on GBS and put '46 out to pasture, except perhaps when we want a change from the Eastern Front? Just an idea like I say, but it seemed a pretty popular option.
  16. Personally, I'll be sorry to see '46 and CloD go. For me, DCS requires too much effort to be moderately competent let alone competitive and GBS doesn't have the planeset or scenarios that hold my interest all that much. It doesn't matter really though - I fly so little now anyway that my input to the group is token at best. That said, I do think that the group as a whole needs to find a way forward that suits the majority of regular flyers. Our decisions when '46 was THE sim were easy - now there are 4-5, making everyone happy is going to be nigh on impossible. I will go along with the majority view for the good of the Dogz, whether I decide to fly or not.
  17. How about a 3 ship Corsair display - there's enough of those in Europe I think? Oo, oo - Dragon Rapides!
  18. Definitely a wish Tom, but on the 'Will it be at Legends' scale it's at the unlikely end somewhere after a visit from Fifi and Diamond Lil
  19. Three Sabres!
  20. The 38 DC-3s and C-47s taking part will be assembling on the turf at Duxford on the 4th & 5th June (Tuesday and Wednesday) with practice jumps and other flying on both days with the Daks setting out for Normandy around midday on the 5th along with escorting Spits and Mustangs. The paras are due to jump over the beachhead between 4 & 5pm. Anyone fancy going along to Duxford to watch the action? tickets (for either day) are £25 (including museum entry) and I'm planning to go on the Wednesday.
  21. So the theme for 2019's Legends is... Any guesses?
  22. So although next Summer seems a long way off for those in the Northern hemisphere, it's always cheering to get the dates for the coming year's Flying Legends - So 13th and 14th July 2019 - Who's up for this? 1. Jabo (Hotel booked Friday - Sunday) - my 20th consecutive Leg ends! 2. Crash (Hotel booked Friday - Sunday) 3. Painless 4. Delta 5. BluBear 6. Sweper 7. VARP Thor 8. VARP Hunter 9. Sid 10. Fenrir +1
  23. Thought it might be useful if we pinned a post with useful links and things at the top here. IL-2 Mission Planner http://il2missionplanner.com/ (Thanks to Thrudd)
