    Remembering Joint-Ops

    I was clearing out my inboxes and came upon my certificate. I spent a lot of time in their courses, finishing all but the last bomber course, I believe. It was a wonderful flight school based on IL-2:1946. I met a ton of fine pilots and instructors and I hope they are all doing well. I only know of a few that are no longer with us, such as Lily. I wish I had all the material they had, it was all great theory.

    S! All, On a day off, what better then taking a few hours on my next ride for the Indy Car 2020 Series - with the JG1 Racing Team! Still looking at some stuff, but I like this new paint job. Cheers, GenMarkof ps: with only one paint skin, it fits for all Indy Car - Road, Oval, small Oval and Indy regular.

    I must admit I am a bit dumbfounded. Thank you very much for the recognition, even though I have to insist that it is only because of the support and efforts of others that I have been able to take care of the coordination of the Spring campaign. There are many people who did a great job!

    Looks like lots of patches on this one including a large panel of fabric replaced on the upper wing. (and those bullet holes look uncomfortably close to the cockpit 😲). Does anyone have other pics of repaired / airworthy aircraft?

    Was that the same one that cracked the sky open on departure that afternoon? I got outside of Hangar 1 just in time. Only time I’d ever seen a Phantom II in flight. My God what a sound. What struck me the most was how flat it was flying, as in zero difference between the longitudinal axis and the path of flight. It was just on a rail. Pure power.

    The FIF 2020 "Spring Campaign" has officially come to an end! Unfortunately, due to the very late start, we were only able to get one phase-of-play in before July. But what a Phase! After 4 weeks of fighting, only 2 points separate the two teams. And with no Phase B, the Blue Team has emerged victorious! Congratulations to everyone for an extremely well-fought and well-flown campaign. Both teams adapted well to the new environment that Flying Circus offered. And while there were a few technical snafus here and there, the overall experience was extremely enjoyable. Should anyone have any suggestions on how FIF can be improved, definitely let @Butzzell or I know. As we pause for the Summer, we've already started working on the next Campaign! We'll share more details in the coming months. We look forward to flying with you all! In the meantime, let us lift our glasses filled with our favorite libations and toast our virtual opponents. Prost! Salut! To celebrate the conclusion of the Spring Campaign, here is the FIF campaign ribbon. Blue for the Blue Team. Red for the Red Team. Large version: Small version: And as always, thank you to every pilot who flew! Without your continued support, this tournament would not be able to function! The scores for Session A4 are shown below. . . . FIF 2020 "Spring Campaign" - A4 Results (Saturday, 27 June 2020): Blue (Entente) Objectives Completed: 15 Tanks at Factory Destroyed Trench Recon completed Factory destroyed HQ Recon completed Prisoner rescued Ship destroyed Ship destroyed Aerodrome destroyed Truck Convoy destroyed Bridge destroyed Reconnaissance secondary destroyed HQ destroyed Supply depot destroyed Wreath dropped Reserve Unit completed [not shown in pictures] Red (Central) Objectives Completed: 14 Artillery Spotting completed Factory destroyed Reserve unit completed Prisoner rescued Aerodrome destroyed Ship destroyed Ship destroyed Artillery secondary completed Convoy destroyed Convoy destroyed Bridge destroyed Strategic recon completed Supply depot destroyed Wreath dropped Total "Phase A" Objectives Completed ( PHASE A FINAL ) Blue Team = 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 = 48 = 1 PHASE POINT Red Team = 10 + 12 + 10 + 14 = 46 = 0 PHASE POINT Note: No Phase B was flown. . . .

    What is your current Timezone: US Central Standard Time (CST) Do you have a Joystick or HOTAS? I have a very basic Logitech 3D Pro w/ Twist rudder and plastic throttle tumb-rotor - luckily it also has hat-switch and base buttons for engine management controls and a weapon trigger. Do you have TeamSpeak installed, as well as a working microphone? No Teamspeak currently as I mostly use discord, however I can and will install Teamspeak again - I used to use it for many iRacing leagues between 2013-2016 Do you have TrackIR, or a FreeTrack system for view control? I do have a TrackIR and an Occulus CV-1 VR headset - it suffers from some poor quality head tracking issue that may be due to damage, though, so I would most likely be using the TrackIR instead. What sims are you currently flying? IL:2 Great battles series - Battles of Stalingrad and Kuban mostly, as well as pickup matches in War Thunder (A bit more arcade-oriented but not terrible) How did you hear about JG1? Through the 2Old4Forza Sim racing community inviting me to Race in the JG1 Sim racing league - and then realizing that the community was mostly flight sim oriented and discussing my setup a bit with Britchot on Discord! Is there anything else that you'd like us to know? I'm probably a bit more capable in the 4-wheeled vehicles than I am in the winged ones! I've been passionate about Military history and WWII era aviation for a very long time; have dabbled in many Simulators but never been part of an active squadron or done more than dipping my toe into some of the Larger IL:2 Great battles servers. I would most likely need some coaching to grow into a pilot that was helpful to the Geschwader rather than a more casual lazy-boy tumbling my way across the skies; but would love to learn and grow while still having fun with everybody! Due to the current COVID Situation I am laid off and my main source of income is now instructing racing students remotely on the simulators from home, so my schedule may be a bit odd and inconsistent at times as well; just to have that out front in case it's an issue.

    If you call him up, please let him know Poland wants her MiG back. I wonder if the seller would accept a truckload of pierogi as payment. I'd be happy to throw in a couple of cases of Polish vodka to seal the deal.

    What are you guys listening to?

    If anybody wants some music that has less propensity to distract while on their June 29th Richtoffen practice sorties I would recommend the following, both for being pretty low-activity for the mind and nice and smooth. 😎 Joe Pass - Meditation - Solo Jazz Guitar: Masayoshi Takanata (Lead Writer for Japanese Jazz super-group "Cassiopea") - The Rainbow Goblins - Radio Play, Orchestral/Fusion funk: This one's really esoteric and has lots of cheesy sounding 1980's Synths and stuff so you might want to stay away from it, I was turned off by it personally at first and had to find which portions of which songs actually sounded real nice to me. Mostly the guitar tones - which are often used to make weather effects or simulate singing/violin melodies are really spectacular.

    Outside of the mold of what is being passed around here, but my fiance and I watched a four part docu-series on the German Einsatzgruppen and the atrocities committed by them. I think it was on Netflix. That was eye opening. Graphic. Really put some gruesome detail into the whole slaughterhouse that was Nazi Germany. Would definitely recommend it.

    Yes. It is a Movie made by Defa, the east German movie company that was supposed to get people in the east German airforce. It tells some minor storys for example a german and a soviet commander who both fought in spain against the nazis. But the main character gets illusions while in flight and crashes his Mig21 and injures himself. Also you can see another pilot getting to old to fly so he works with the ground guidance. There are some great Scenes with the Mig21

    @Tobas_van_der_Lust mentioned this movie to me today on TS: Anflug Alpha 1. It's a 1971 film, produced in East German, about the DDR's Luftstreitkräfte. The films subtitle is: "Ein Film über Mut, Liebe und Bewährung“ Which I think translates as "A Film about Courage, Love and Worth" (???) Tobas can tell us more. You can watch it through the German version of Amazon Prime. But unfortunately, I don't think it's available in the States or Canada.
