Re: Wed, 10/14 - Clearfield

While I’m hoping that some of our members return soon from whatever is keeping them from logging on, some are pursuing their pilot’s license as you know, I’m actively recruiting again in an attempt to bolster our numbers so that we can hold events like these. Package flights are a lot of fun, IMO, a...

Re: Brevity codes

Ah, so Janes F-15E had it right and it is acceptable to use "shack" to indicate a hit on target.

Re: Mars

I'm impressed you found it! It's so hard to line up the scope on anything.

Re: Wed, 10/14 - Clearfield

So, no prearranged package flight. Just do the missions as they are generated, I assume.

Re: Clearfield Bombcat 100720

I will say that now that we know I have to reinitialize my config for when fly the F-14 on multiplayer, it's a simple enough fix. Weird that I'm having the problem, but it's no big deal so long as we don't forget to do it. Should be part of take-off flight check! Also, cool that we developed a worka...

Re: Change training night

Sorry Hammer, I may have shown up just to fly with you, but I graded right up to 9:30 and by then I was burned out. Ended up talking to Deb and finally eating dinner. Been a rough start to this school year. I'm putting in fourteen and sixteen hour days lately.

Re: Wed, 10/6 - Clearfield

We did fairly well in this respect last week, I thought. Hopefully we can improve on the progress we've made.

Right. I think I would dig Elite Dangerous....assuming I had the time. I'm so busy right now there is just no way.

Re: Star Citizen

I'm flying so much DCS I just have time right now to play another sim. Especially one that hasn't been released? Or has it? I'd like to play it but really I can't log on another night for multiplayer. PDT_Armataz_01_09

Re: Change training night

Another approach is that you guys don't have to change. I'll simply miss Monday nights until football season is over. I can train with Bones impromptu when we both have time. Right now, there is only three of us showing up for the training nights which really stinks. I know I can make Tuesday nights...

Re: Star Wars Squadrons

Pass. A proper star wars flight sim game should be as realistic as others in that genre. I think this one is. But, it should also have an awesome single player campaign. this one does not.

Re: Brevity codes

I've always used Shack to indicate killed ground target since Janes F-15. The RIO in that game would call shack when you hit your target. Then he would announce if secondaries went off. I've always used shackle to indicate my swinging from right to left or left right behind the leader, if I needed t...

Re: 9-30-2020 Clearfield: Airfield Interdiction

That sounds like a plan Bones. I'll go up with Jedi and Panzer and conduct some SEAD, and then go up with you later and attack the primary targets if they remain. :-)

Re: Mission 092320

In terms of the furball, you and I stayed together in combat spread formation (1 to 1.5 miles apart) throughout that engagement and we sorted our targets well right up until you got shot down,which is just the result of sim stuff. Wouldn't happen in real life that way. I think when you have that man...

Wednesday 9/23/20

Not sure what the fragging is for tonight. We can pick up where we left off on 9/16/20. See that flight sign-up posting to review the package flight and our current status on that mission. If we finish that package, we can fly the scripted missions generated by Surrexen. Let's try and stay coordinat...

Monday 9/21/20

Does anyone want to work on something particular in tonight's practice session? Here are some options: Bones and I may work on the F-14 together, if he's around. Does anyone want to practice All Weather Intercepts? I was just beginning to really learn this skill when I got away from it and now it's ...
