We're having a race event. See the introduction post in the RTW/Multiplayer Events forum:
The idea is to pick a Pacific Theater WW-II plane, fly to 16 airports along the Solomon Islands, Indonesia, and the Philippines, navigating using only ADF stations, maps, and stop watches. You can choose any plane that was was in production by July 1944. You will be placed in a speed class, determined by the maximum FS speed of the ship you choose. This means you can fly you favorite WW-II plane, B-17, P-36, Ki-43, A6M, or Beaufighter. You will be competing against pilots flying planes in a similar speed class, so, everyone has a shot.
