    Again, here we go! Left AGGM heading towards AYKB. Again, hehe, lots of clouds and some of those bugger clouds towards the end of the flight when we needed to start descending had great big rocks hiding in them. Our favorite weather thing FIG showed up on approach, but alas, we all made it down

    Went over to the local Swap N Shop and did a little trading around and come out with this Seafire III. Wanted to make sure I was ready for any Zeros that might be hanging out...

    Howdy, here we are again, took off with a TBF, from the USS ENTERPRISE, from AYBK to AYTK. The TBF changed course going to his patrol area. We felt a little exposed without some fighter protection, hey, but we ran into a Navy patrol PB4Y-2 Privateer bomber. Again this Privateer changed course. As luck would have it a SBD flew along with us for a short time, and then he changed course and disappeared into the clouds. As we were getting close to AYTK we started to get a little concern about not having any fighter cover, and then behold, a British Seafire popped out of the clouds and escorted us into AYTK. A very nice flight.

    Hey there! we were off and running again, but tonight we had a short flight, but an enjoyable one. The weather was good for the complete flight for a change.

    Made it to Cape Glouchester (CPG). At least some of us did. One pilot who shall remain nameless managed to blow his Seafire up in midair...

    Hey! Here we go chasing that seafire with a beer keg attached to the wings. With that beer Willy is going to have a lot of friends at CPG those Marines will be his buddies for years. hehe Old dumbbell here forgot to fuel up before takeoff, we were darn near out of fuel when we landed, now need scrounge up some fuel. A good flight and some nice conversations. See you all later.

    As tempting as it was, I decided to fly on past this carrier instead of landing and getting coffee & donuts in the Chief's Mess.

    Howdy folks, Another nice flight from CPG to HYMD. As noted by one of the pilots HYMD looked like a resort compared to some of the places we have landed before. Now, rooms with hot water, soft beds, and room service! To soak in a tub of hot water me sore backside from setting on that hard parachute pack is really going to enjoy this! Oh, did I mention room service! hehe,

    Had some connection issues and could only connect to the server in Golden Wings. So, I ended up flying the Gee Bee. Great flight with some interesting moments on landing...

    With all what was going on last night, connection problems, Old Dudley and I decided to do some low level runs with the B-25. Kind of a kick in the back side
