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>

Hello 1stpar3! Ack Ack was a monster, it's hard to read about his passing. I know we're all human, I guess I expected all you guys to be immortal.  :airplane:

1stpar3 I've written a few more books since the first Relics.

I can't believe that A man who was the emblem of the way to fly, fight and live to do it again is gone.
He has been a part of the morning prayer to Jesus' right with Betty. I haven't flown with any of you for more than just a year but I'm thinking about dropping a few $ and trying to fly again! It feels to me as though this game is starting to leave us... In more ways than one.

Being a gamer for far more than I'd care to admit though this game has even brought me with quite a few of good friends who even had come to my Birthday party to eat the BEST wings at the well-known place amongst us dweebs living in Litchfield County! I got to meet drink with and fill the gut with the BEST WING'S EVER At "Woods Pitt". Had em and drank a few Dark Beer's with Mars01, Badboy, and Slapshot, Matter of fact I think Stang even had a few of each with me too at Woods Pitt!

I remember you way back in the day morph!
Back in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

Hello,

I am Ack-Acks wife and with much regret I must announce that he passed away on Oct 1, 2022. He loved this game and had many happy hours shooting down people in his p38. I'm sorry for the delay, I was making arrangements for him.

Thank you, Hitech for being someone he highly respected. Thank you for all the hours of fun you gave him.

With much respect,
Zmy; Ack-Acks widow

That's a shame, condolences to his family and friends. Ack-Ack and i go back many years sparing in the arenas, never easy to beat. I just got back in the game and was thinking if I'd run into him.

RIP Ack-Ack

My deepest condolences. Ack-Ack was one, if not the best P-38 drivers in the game. A good guy too.  :salute

Sad to hear of his passing.  A very good 38 driver and overall asset to this community.
