  S! Its great that there are more AKAers starting or returning to cliffs,there are many things that must be gone over ,guns and loadouts convergence engine management settings and a host of other items as well as what you can and cannot get away with in combat why don't we try to have a squad practice night hows Wed eves? we can do it whatever week night is best for all of us, it really is needed as there is a fairly steep learning curve and with some practice and proper settings can be mastered quite quickly.

Wednesday is a good idea, then we'll get a sense of those who might be able to participate in the Wednesday evening campaign in SOW once that starts up.
I'll try to be there.
We need to get the rest of the guys who signed up for SOW assigned so they can actually fly in the server though.
I was with Ram and he went through all the steps MattE spelled out, but still could not fly in the server. What's with that???

Remember anyone can fly on the SOW server, they just need to use one of the Open bases if they are not assigned to the squadron.  Only registered AKA squadron members can fly from Rodchester.

when we've tried to launch from Watchfield, they have not been able to get into the cockpit.
We'll keep trying.

Wednesday, 4/29, great turnout. Lit into a flight of 10 Dorniers trying to work over the Isle of Wight area. We knocked down a few of them and sent them packing. After landing to rearm and get patched up, I had to fly back home to save the plane before dinner while the rest took off after an incoming flight of JU-88's. Wish I could have stuck around for the fun. 1.3 kills isn't a bad tally though.
Nice mission.
