This hits close to home.  AKAK was one of the primary reasons I started flying the P38s.  Not so much emulate him but just to try and figure out how he was so dang accurate in it.  He was always helpful and even though I was shot down by him a lot... no seriously... a LOT, it always had us trading salutes and then a private "WHAT did I do to screw THAT one up??" or "HOW did you do that???"  Since then, I have just kept flying them, probably always will.

Prayers and my sincere condolences to his family.

Thank you all, so much. Some of the comments made me cry and smile. He talked about a few of you.

My name is Amy, Zmy is my game/forum name.

Fly on, in peace, knowing a p38 will not be shooting you down, today. /salute

Amy, any chance you could past a pic? Somehow it would be fitting to put a face with the name I've been familiar with for 20 + years.

Thanks.

Well crap.  I rarely interacted with him, but always enjoyed him.  Condolences to all involved.

It's all unrealistic crap requested by people who want pie in the sky actions performed without an understanding of how things work and who can't grasp reality.
