<S> Talon..  :salute :old:

We've been routinely getting together with the Dickweed Heavy Bomber Group in some form for the last several squad nights of theirs- usually some of us help with escort duty. Myself, I grab a set of 17's.

As far as our bomb group missions are concerned, we are slowly getting a regular squad night back together on Wednesday nights -9pm eastern.

See you up there.  :aok :)

Sounds good, sir. <S>

In about a week and a half, I'll be offline for awhile as I travel back to the Philippines. I hope to be back on soon, but it'll be a squad morning for me in their time zone.

Technically, yeah... it's a bump..  :uhoh

Buuuuuuut, we're still flying with the skeleton crew we have left. If you're interested in hanging out, we still do our own strategic heavy bomb runs (short and long-haul) as well as coordinate with other squads/groups. We also play around with all the other toys in AH's box. You're welcome to hang out if this is your thing.

Door's open, sir. Vox 191 on the Bishop side of the fence. We do raids, but we're pretty relaxed about it. Some guys do prefer to fly escort or gun. It would be cool to increase our number of dedicated and practiced bombardiers, though.  :salute

Thanks, Steely. I'm trying to keep it going in some form. TTflier has been the one officially in charge. It's been more difficult because I bounce back and forth between visiting my family in the States, and spending most of my time at my other home in the Philippines with my "adopted" family (girlfriend and her kids).

My mornings over there are spent working, and I'm barely able to get some AH time in.

Here's a pic of the bunch I've been caring for for about a year now:

Was fortunate to fly with your group and against, always a good experience. Good to have the Bombers rolling on :aok

Thanks, sir. We just had another great run last night at around 20.6K on the Bish/Knight front. One goal was to smash the coastal base, but were met with fierce fighter resistance at co-alt from the other side, as well as as their CV was in the mix fighting our fleet and taking potshots at us. Base destruction was not successful due to their solid defense of it, but two of us did manage to soften and ultimately sink their ship from our high perch.

Felt good knowing that there are still some patient players keeping this aspect of the game going. More are welcome.
