Ack-Ack and I have been adversaries in the air for many years, but it never affected the respect I had for him and his skills in the P-38.  I never let myself get caught in a turn fight with him, but he was feared in the air.

Thoughts and prayers to Mrs Ack-Ack and his family and extensive in-game friends.    :salute :pray

I must be the only guy he openly disliked.  I never liked being shot down by him so I always ran away and waited until he got tangled up in some medium alt dog fight, then I would drop the hammer, man he hated me. 

I remember this one time.....

Oh well.

Rest easy ACK-ACK

This is a VERY SAD and a lose that really "hits home". Not sure if that makes any sense to anyone else out there but it's the way I feel about Ack-Ack and how I he fell into the game that I have logged over a 100s of hours a month for many years of playing!
I'm very sorry to hear this and the loss of him playing the same game with me over the years will always be a lot different!

Murdr and I were talking about Jose’s unsudden death . We both flew with Ack-Ack for many years since Aur Warrior and Aces he was always a great squaddie friend and Advasary in the Game Since Ack-Ack flew the Squadron name 479th Raiders til he passed that Squad name should kinda be retired even though I know that can’t happen and one of the original members of the 479th wish it could happen

 OMG I came into the forums today only to find two of my favorite personalities from the old days have passed.
Ack Ack was always an AH legend to me, I'm very sad to read of his passing. RIP <S>

First of let me express my condolences to his family and anyone that knew AcK-AcK. i hated him as an opponent, but he was a good guy!

i read somewhere that someone suggested a monday night madness with all P38's as a tribute to Him?!!

Consider it done. this monday night join us from 8pm EST til whenever. P38's only in monday night madness.
