*points to remember:
- Don't shoot down Tom, some still think it's a compulsory rite of passage on leaving OTU.
- Be sure to have the right skin on for ops or you will be on fuel bowser duty.
- If you do anything exceptional make it a good one or they will never let you forget it.
and finally . . . don't kill steal, Tom hates competion :)

We have great need of your talents, report for duty immediately.

Welcome to Ops Blacktop. I got shot down by flak but that should not worry you. The hordes of Mustangs, Spitfires and P47s all flown by experienced allied pilots.... We frankly yes that should worry you :rof_smile

Hello everyone!

Many thanks for your warm welcome which I appreciate very much.

I am looking forward to getting to know you all and getting stuck into ops. I could hear the sigh of relief from Merlin when I finished OTU.

Great to be a member of the Tangmere pilots. :rof_smile

Hi Sparky

I was more a W-5 at the end of my career. Never fancied the Officers Mess for whatever reason.

O7 for me is just another way to 'Salute' :rof_smile

I will just stick with this......... :rof_salute
