Hello dflion

Thanks for creating the campaign,enjoying it very much,it is mighty hard to deal with german planes with the Hurricane 1938 mg's but its chalanging.By now flew 6 missions and its great.
It is very nice that guyz like you and IceFire are creating missions according pilot books like the Clostermann book( love the Storm clouds campaign that IceFire created according it)
I red the Clostermann and Alan Deer books and will try to get Roland Beaumont's book.

Cheers
gprr

That's great news brando. I am very happy for you that the operation seems a sucess. Here's to continued recovery.

It was a week ago, right? Sometimes medicine makes you scratch your head in amazement. (been through my share of experiences.)

Thumbs up 'My Part of the Sky' - enjoying campaign

Hi gprr,
Glad to hear you are enjoying the campaign. One of the great features of Oleg's IL2 classic flight sim is that you can create campaigns that are very historical - this feature will only get better when Oleg releases the 'Storm of War BOB' flight sim.

I had difficullty getting hold of my copy of Roland Beaumont's book 'My Part of the Sky'. I finally picked up an excellent condition second hand copy from 'alibris books' -www.alibris.com
This book is a great read, which vividly descibes his flight experiences during WWII which I hoped I have captured in the campaign.

dflion: this link showed up on M4T the other day, courtesy of Duggy. Within it, if you look for the TSR 2, you will find an excellent colour, but mute, video of Roland conducting a BAC test flight. Some good views of RB dismounting the aircraft, at the end of the 4 min video.
Cheers . . .

Smile RB test flying the TSR2

Thanks Mogster,
I will have a look at this film clip.
What a sad story the TSR2 saga was - obviously with Roland test flying the aircraft it would have been a fantastic plane if it had become operational.
In his 'My Part of the Sky' memoirs you quickly get the feeling of his absolute 'love of flying' - his descriptions of aircraft handling and weather flying conditions are superb. You can see why Hawkers grabbed him to be one of their test pilots during the war.
