First i,d like to thank Gen.+Star for inviting me to join the StarKnights ,Swampy for the great wep page and to my fellow StarKnights for making me welcome to the squadron.Ihave a lot to say so to but to make things shorter i,ll say read Sgt.Natty,s first posting and i,ll say everything he says goes for me too.(He,s also a fellow Bermudian!,and one of my best mates!)
I must confess I was never realy into flight sims
for the reason being most are modern day missle shooters.To me nothing is more boring than getting missle lock on a radar plip firing missles and going on to next target.But I have always been a ww2 buff from my plastic model building days.AW3 as a online multiplayer fills the flight sim void for me like no other game has.But this is not what Irealy want to talk about.
I want to talk about the fighting Spirit.You know him as 2nd Lt. SPIRIT,a true comrade.Yesterday I decided that I just dont seem to have the knack for fighters and my gunning is only fair so I decided to concentrate on my bombing.So as not to disapoint any would be gunners with a skipper who can,t hit nuthin ,I flew a couple of solo missions (with mixed results) to see if i had what it takes to be a bomber pilot.
It was on my 3rd run where 2nd Lt.Spirit and another person i cant remember asked to join my crew of a B-17and i accepted they,re invitation.Shortly after take off the guy whos name i cant remember lost his connection,leaving Spirit to man all the guns by hiself!Not only did he keep my ass bogie free the entire mission(shooting down anyone who got close) but also gave me good advice on setting up my bomb run too!When all was sed and done we landed safely and racked up nearly 7000 points!I know this might not seem like much to some of the veterans but to a newby
like me it means alot.2nd Lt.Spirit went far above the call of duty to help me and for that i say thank you. Star with people like Spirit on our side we can,t lose,and thats all the worse for the bz and cz and Spirit deserves a promotion in my view.(of corse this is just a sujestion!!!) : )
