    Hello there!

    Hi everyone, first off... very snazzy website you got here, I like it. I've recently found myself with some free time and been having an absolute ball with the MiG-21bis. I enjoy flying the Hornet and other "modern" modules, however they feel pretty bland of character compared to the older jets. My main focus in DCS previous was the Viggen, being a "mud mover" at heart. However I've found myself quite taken by the MiG, enjoying the quick start ups and not needing to enter lat/long coords for a flight plan manually and wait for a cursed INS system to align. Just start the old girl up and go flying. I live in the UK, working in the NHS meaning my availability can be a little variable especially with my degree studies coming towards their conclusion. Especailly if I've been given a row of night shifts etc, or if I have an assignment deadline approaching. I've been flying since the original LOMAC days as part of the 159th GAR, with plenty of time spent in the Su-25T. From there I also had a few years flying in Falcon 4.0 and IL-2 1946. It's a little scary to think I've been involved with LOMAC/DCS in some form for almost half of my entire life! I've also got IL-2 and most of the associated expansions which I picked up for a bargain price a while back, but haven't gotten around to flying yet. However if someone wants a bomber pilot look no further :), multi-crew in the He-111 looks a blast (Wellington for the Tobruk exp looks awesome too). Modules owned: FC3 Bf-109K Spitfire Mk.IX A-10C Ka-50 UH-1 Mi-8MTV AV-8B Mirage 2000C MiG-21bis MiG-19P AJS 37 F-18C F-14B Combined Arms Persian Gulf, Normandy and NTTR terrain packs (sadly I can only install NTTR because of lack of SSD space atm, waiting to get another M.2 drive). I think that's everything... I don't even want to tally up the total cost of all that. I fly with a HOTAS Warthog, Thrustmaster pedals and Track IR, have a headset and mic etc for use in Discord/TS or whatever comms software you lads prefer. Have a little experience in SRS too but had a few issues getting it setup initally. I've familiarised myself with most of the Fishbeds systems, I have the startup procedure (as I do it anyway) memorised and can get the old girl up and running within 60 seconds. Also somewhat reasonably versed in RSBN/Arc navigation and recently been practicing the PRMG approaches including big/small box. Always happy to learn new tricks however and have been looking for other MiG drivers to fly with. Anyone here fly the Viggen much? Would be nice to get back in the pit of that one and get some practice in! Also, do you have a Discord server or a public server I might be able to hop into and perhaps get to meet a few of you? Look forward to hearing from you and hopefully see you in the skies soon o7. Cheers! DJ

    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!

    Formula 1 is BACK!

    Not much to say except that I'm VERY excited for this weekend. Can't wait to see how the boys in orange do in the race, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Carlos. I also wonder if the pink Mercedes is going to live up to the hype. Ze Germans picked up right where they left off in 2019, dominating free practice. I was hoping the Red Bulls would be nipping at their heels, but the RB16 appears skittish and tricky to drive. The Italian teams are nowhere - looks like the pandemic affected them worst. Renault's pace seems promising, but I'm not holding my breath - their response to Danny Ric's departure to McLaren for 2021 has been anything but professional. Looking forward to FP3 and quali tomorrow.

    Formula 1 is BACK!

    S! All, Had a great time watching this first F1 race of the Year... Like you, I was happy to see many of the underdog of last year near or on the podium! Having a second race next week (in Austria) will make it even better to see if it was luck or if the same pilots will get the same position at the end! I also saw the F2 series (Saturday Race) and it was a blast seeing the (3) three cars in front changing position until the last lap. Happy to see F1 back, even for a short season... I love racing! Cheers' GenMarkof

    So this is interesting

    I maintain that EVERY time I've been bounced they were invisible planes! 🎯 I don't think it's as common in the WWII part of the game but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's happening. It's the same engine after all.

    I'm glad to see McLaren back in the fight again! Was very cool to see them pick up their first podium in a long time. I think Hamilton's penalty was definitely justified although maybe Albon could have given him a little more room but I haven't scrutinized that completely. And it's easy to armchair general all of that when you're not in the middle of it. Still, Hamilton I think was a bit early getting on the throttle and couldn't quite hold as far inside as he should have. At any rate, Bottas has a nice lead to begin with. If he can keep this performance up over the entire season (unlike 2019, which he also started very strong) he could be the first person not Hamilton to win the championship since Rosberg. Who knows though, if Mercedes ends up with reliability issues it could be anybody's year. I'm definitely interested in how well Ferrari does next year with Leclerc and Sainz.

    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. . . .

    I was excited to see McLaren on the podium and yes I saw the celebration last year in Brazil!. Unfortunately, this will be the only race I watch this year as they have fallen into my boycott group, for personal reasons. 😒 😒 Edit: I don’t watch sports that don’t remain apolitical.

    Formula 1 is BACK!

    It was certainly an interesting race. It appears as if many teams are feeling the sting of limited season length and labor-hours in their factories due to COVID Shutdowns; Italy got hit particularly hard hence why Ferrari is struggling particularly bad. (After reading this I see Firefly mentioned this in the OP of the thread! Glad I'm not just crazy!) Lots of Hydraulic/Gearbox control related issues for Merc and Williams, which doesn't bode super well. Extremely high retirement rate due to Mechanical DNF in general today, which could really shake things up as the season goes on, considering how short it is. Happy for the pace of the new McLaren. Interested to see how the rest of the season pans out. My best bet is that we'll start to see the usual HAM-BOT-VER podium pattern once we get to the 2nd or 3rd circuit on the calendar and the teams are spooled up and operating at full tilt again. I hope to God I'm wrong, though. Love this sport, but have grown sick of watching it from 14-19' after being spoiled with 2009-2013 growing up. My gut feeling about the Albon/Hamilton incident is that according to F1 rules, more of the blame is on Albon; but as a driver I can pretty much tell HAM committed to the corner, then couldn't correct or back out and just got tangled in Albons wheel tracks and understeered into him - ALB was also trying to square the exit off (cut in at a steep, flat angle for traction) since he was on the Outside so they were naturally always going to hit each-other there. Sucks to see. Gutted for Albon. I feel like ruling it a racing incident w/ no penalty or the eventual actual outcome of a 5-second timed were pretty spot on by the stewards. It doesn't give Albon his race back but since it wasn't a particularly large mistake it doesn't warrant a 10 second timed or Drive-through. Watching the Ferrari onboards I feel like they're having problems with the Rear Roll-centre of the suspension and/or engine back-torque of the car. Both cars seemed to over-rotate when coasting on transition between braking and turn-in point. Vettel seemed to be having a much harder time of it than Leclerc did, and frankly the high casualty rate and pure luck managed to net a Ferrari Podium in this race. They'll probably be 5th-8th the rest of the season depending on how the McLaren gets developed and if Sport Pesa Racing Point can figure out how to update their reverse-engineered car. I'd watch for them to drop off it they haven't managed to understand the fundamental design concept by Hungary/Great Britain as everybody's gone through their first large ration of updates.

    Agreed, Bottas kept a cool head under enormous pressure. Hamilton's penalty was IMHO justified, but whether Albon was bit optimistic when he went for an outside pass is another matter. Vettel looks like he doesn't give a flying crap about what's going on, he's there to collect his pay and bugger off at the end of the season. Carlos drove a fine, measured race and demonstrated why Ferrari picked him over a 4-time world champion. Leclerc is showing incredible maturity and drove so well he must've made The Professor (Alain Prost) proud, and that's with a car that's now firmly in the midfield in terms of raw pace. Norris has incredible one-lap speed (he gained half a second on Hamilton on the last lap! On fresh rubber, I know, but still) but needs to get used to running at the front of the field - maturity will come with experience. It's great to see McLaren second in the constructors' standings, but I don't think that will last (IMHO their best-case scenario is third, which would've been unthinkable two years ago). Red Bull has had a catastrophic start of the season. Worse still, that was on their home turf. The Pink Panthers screwed up by not calling in Perez during the first Safety Car. Checo is renowned as a master of tyre management, but in these conditions and after so many laps on mediums he had few options left. The Mercs looked imperious, but I wonder if they can keep those reliability woes in check - that gearbox issue looked very serious. If the rest of this year's races are going to be half as eventful as this one then we're gonna have a very exciting season. Can't wait for next week!

    Bottas giving Hamilton some pressure. Hamilton made a mistake pushing out into Albon but at least he looks better than Vettel. I don't think Vettel is going to be staying in F1. His prospects are looking a bit grim with his performance over the last 2 or three years.

    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.
