1/2 the load is prepared here; just waiting to find out the specific target, so some things can be 'personalized'

Even though Rob took the liberty of answering the question with a sort of 'anyone is in' response, that's not the case. This is a group to which one is added via their request and my opinion that they will be an effective and responsible member of the Squadron. We've had several guys sign up and then, because they apparently never read any of the directions or other posts on the thread, had no idea what was going on and mail things out early, spoiling the surprise...or not send a package at all!

Because Rob approved you, I'll go ahead and OK that. But he's responsible for you! Don't let him down.

My first suggestion would be for you to go back and read the entire June Mission thing, from start to finish. That will give you all you need to know in spirit and in terms of hard information.

In answer to another question of yours...there is no one way this thing plays out. It is intended that each month be different...and the ways in which the month are different are intended to be SECRET!!! You are not allowed to talk about target information on this thread - or with anyother member via PM - etc. as it may jeopardize the security of the whole thing. And WOE be unto anyone that jeopardizes the security of a mission. There was once a TV show called "Branded" -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXlUS5-ag_g&feature=related



And Kyle...I see that you didn't keep up with the mission activities while you were away! I keep sayin' it and sayin' it...YOU GOTS TA READ THE THREAD TO KNOW WTF IS GOING ON!!!

*shrug* Working and keeping up with bombing just don't go together. Smile Sorry, Commander. I'll always keep up with months I participate. I suggest a re-posting of the rules in whole to start out the thread each month anyway, and make note of new stuff and changes for guys on leave that come back, as well as greenhorn pilots. Cool There can't be too much (organized) communication.

On the other hand, I'm prepared--already have my bomb as of today. I'm on it. Twisted Evil

Yeah...you would be the one that wants me to re-post all that stuff every time. lol


Just kidding ya big lug. It's easy...I just go back and cut what I want to use and paste it in...basic. But I think I'll put it in a word doc like I do with all the lists and assignments and announcements and all. For each month's mission I have a word doc that is just a gnat's eyebrow short of 5 pages of text. Everything I send out and all the 'rules' and everything is saved. Takes a bit of time, but nothing extreme.

That's why I tend to get a little miffed when guys that said they wanted to be involved in this take NO time to just read the thread...know what they're supposed to do and when. If a guy posts here once he gets emails when someone else posts, right? So I'm estimating that if a guy went in 3-4 times a week and read what had been written since his last check-in it would take less than 15 minutes a week (about 5 minutes to check the posts) for a monthly TOTAL of one hour a month...one hour for each mission...which works out to .001 (rounded) as the fraction is 1/720. And it's really only that heavy for two...two and a half weeks each month. So...

Anyway, I think re-posting the guidelines each month is a good idea. I'll do that when I send out the target assignment for July.

Special twists this time? Oh yeah! How about...everybody has to include something in their package that's either red, white or blue! Done! Excellent! We're also going to have a "theme" for the month. More on that later.

No, I wasn't clear... you have to re-post the rules every new page of the bombing thread. Geez, Commander. Laughing

But yes, what you said--copy, pasting, editing, the rules each month blar blar blar... that.

This is a complex operation whether or not you realize it--herding cats. cat cat cat cat It all just works because it's awesome. Some folks just get bored after reading six words, and you lose them. It's why I get away with so much crap here, no one actually reads it. Laughing

Oh, red, white and blue twist--great. Someone's getting a French flag, now. Razz

A FRENCH flag??? Suspect



Perhaps, my young apprentice, you have mistakenly entered the wrong training room? THIS is the BoB Bombers room where pilots, eager for battle, raging with crazed fury...their steel birds the most perfect and lethal embodiment of a rain of death from the sky...psych themselves for their mission of total destruction against their assigned target. Like a Star @ heaven The AMERICAN flag is proudly flown here! Like a Star @ heaven

It's NOT the room where they start with some mild exercises...raising both hands over their heads. OK - well that's all they'll need to know in THAT room! cheers

I wondered how long it would take you guys to come up with some escort craft to play 'go along'. I'm thinkin' that the P40 Warhawk (being one of the three or four most recognizable fighters of WWII) would be an excellent escort.

So let's have a little contest here. Members only. There are three planes in the running for "Official Escort" status of the BoB Bombers Squadron. In order of their appearance below (not counting the Corsair) they are the P40 Warhawk, the P51 Mustang and the dark horse...the P38 Lightning. Vote for your favorite and state a valid reason (not related to something silly or intended to taunt another pilot, etc.). The winner will be the one that gets the most votes by 6 a.m. this Monday morning. It will be recognized in the future as the official escort, yadda, yadda, yadda. AND...I will pick one pilot that voted for the winner, and in my sole opinion gave the "best" reason...and reward him with his choice of one tin of extraordinary tobacco (I'll suggest 4-5 options...like Escudo, Kendal Cream Flake, Bracken Flake, Best Brown, FVF, etc., etc., etc.) which I will ship to him to arrive prior to the mission date.

Who knows...this might be the start of a "Contest Series" for this mission!

Anyway...on to the 'possibles'.

PS: Anyone who asks a question about this is automatically disqualified...all the information you need is right here...just read it and do it.


The P40 Warhawk:




Of course, the other two most recognizable (IMHO) are the P51 Mustang and the gull winged F4U Corsair.


Man...I just couldn't resist this shot!!! Doesn't "Sparky" have ANY pride?





So...just because I like it so much, even though it's generally a Navy plane and a carrier based flyer...it's just so cool! But anyway...I'm throwing it out of the running. No Navy need apply. That kind of thing.





So what do I replace the Corsair with? Boy, In my book it's gotta be the plane that shot down Yamamoto...nice record. In the Eureopean theater it would be akin to taking out Hitler!


So here we have the number three entry...the P38 Lightning...twin tail...twin engine...looks a little unusual, but it's HOT!

I just hope they keep having the Air Races here in Reno after that awful crash last time. Neutral I loved hearing the planes warming up.

Why must limit this to only 3 aircraft? (Asked purely to disqualify myself)

The Warhawk is the best though. There isn't any explanation needed for it other than to show a picture or an actual aircraft. I mean it is the epitome of badassness. The other, while still being awesome, just don't have that "make the enemy piss their pants" appeal to them that the warhawk does. I means seriously there are darn tons of warhawk video games so generations to come can recognize the aircraft...although marginally altered for the games. The token teeth on the front just scream "I will mess you up!"

Competition...I think not.
