Post Joining 617
S! Dambusters!

I've been interested and considering joining 617 Dambusters for quite some time. After having flown several RDP missions with you guys on multiple occasions I have decided to go ahead and join. I have been playing WWIIonline for almost 2 years. I started off always playing ground but I was always one of those players that looked up at the pilots in the sky and dreamed of one day holding my own. My air career started off with me flying fighters only and while I can do okay in air to air combat I am no ace and dogfighting was never my passion. Once I could keep a fighter in the air I tried my hand at the stick of a bomber, this is where my passion lies. I started off flying a Havoc and only knew how to bomb and hit targets at a 30 degree dive. I never understood how to level bomb until I came across the level bombing video on your website. I practised non stop for 2 days until I got it. I have now been level bombing for over a year thanks to your videos. I primarily do RDP bombing but I also level bomb ABs to attrite supply. I also bomb buildings to flatten a town to make it easier for armor and ATGs to see into town. Bombing is one of the few things that holds my attention anymore. I have flown quite a few missions with airslyr88 back when he was in 101st. He seems to have the same passion for flying as I do so I always enjoyed bombing with him. I do have TS and I do use it for the most part but sometimes I only listen if I have company, kids are sleeping, etc. otherwise you will catch me on TS calling 6.

Some personal info. about myself: I am 28 with a wife and 3 girls. I live in Missouri. When I am not working or playing the game I am hunting or sport shooting.

I am look forward to joining 617 and flying with you guys on a regular basis.

hmm, never took a bomber under a bridge before, but I have a fighter many times. I actually survived a 109 on my six one time by going under a bridge. That time he hit the bridge and I just bent my prop but I ended up with a rescue at least. I was surprised he actually followed me under, or tried to. If I can't shake an 09, I'll see how well they fly on the deck once they've burnt off most of their energy. Main time I won't do this is if he chooses not to follow me move for move. Some can't resist copying my every move in hopes of getting guns on me. Once their energy is gone they tend to flop around like a piece of raw bacon and end up hitting a tree or clipping the deck. I got to try the bomber under the bridge now. If it fits, I'll figure it out :)

Ok I flew under a bridge several times now, nothing to it. Better than in a fighter actually because the bomber is more stable. I'll try it upside down, at least for the fun factor. I think I could probably do it. :)
