What a fine gesture by your buyer Nick

Hangar 1 / Centennial Armistice/Remembrance Day
« on: November 11, 2018, 03:30:25 AM »
The most prominent Armistice Day in the lifetime of many of us here. If I make the next centennial one in 2045 I'll be nearly 96!

A number of pilots, in their memoirs and even writing at the time of the Battle, have expressed 'Boy' Wellum's sentiment; 'we just want to be remembered for what we did'. That certainly is the case here and at similar groups, FB groups, websites and forums.
 And in the media recently, whatever you think of the veracity of the films, 'Hurricane' 'Squadron 303', 'Dunkirk' and of course the superb and moving 'Spitfire' documentary have recently acknowledged and paid tribute to the men and women involved.

Thanks for that info Conky and Mike! (I was at Birmingham International at the same time as Mike, I didn't see him there! :) )
As to used rigs, I don't have the technical competence to go down that route, however Conky's suggestion has led me to look at refurbished which have warranties, and there seem to be some good deals at reasonable cost, guided by information I gathered from Mike's post I may proceed down that route.

Thanks! Despite the hype of Bitcoin farmers gabbing all the cards there seems to be good prices for the 1050, and I'll go 16GB of RAM. Good advice about the monitor. In 'War Thunder' Ground Forces sim-mode, distant detection is vital to survive, I expect it will be the same with the BoX tanks.

Having at last got rid of last of last two dependant offspring due to completion of degrees and MScs with them starting to earn an honest crust, I can think about upgrading my (good grief! 10y.o.) rig. So what are you chaps using that can competently run the latest BoX sims please ?
Nothing too fancy I hope, I am but a poor pensioner remember!  ;D

And of course the English test-pilot chappie would be wearing the de rigueur three-piece tweed suit, trilby and equipped with his best pipe!
Some marvellous obscure footage on this chap's aviation history channel channel:
Many dating from the Golden Age of Flight when Woof was nobbut a lad.

After reading Bluey's post, my brain hurts.

Crickey! What airspeed was he exposed to I wonder? Imagine if there had been a birdstrike. One wouldn't know where bird ended and his body began.

that's the German working day, here it is 7.5 hours with many tea-breaks included.
As the German comedian resident over here, Henning Wehn says;
" we Germans too like a laugh; the difference to the British is we have a laugh AFTER the work is done!"

Old dogs/new tricks scenario mayhap Mike :D
 I can't run it so can't comment really, but I get the impression that others here have not been too inspired by this sim series.'or don't have the time for detailed familiarisation.

Seems remarkably stable considering you only had one-and-a-half wings...If you weren't killed, was the kite still flyable one wonders?

As I said on SAS, if it had been us English chappies flying this unfortunate accident would not have occurred. English politeness and consideration would of prevailed: 'After you Cecil", "No, after you Claude"

Good shooting though Mike; of both the target tank and the footage!
