We have said that Rising Sun will be the stories of the pilots in the Asia/Pacific theater of WWII and not just a retelling of the American victory...and that the Japanese will be in it as pilots to the end and not just targets in a first person shooter.

So that we aren't lured away by our own unintentional biases, we would like to hear of stories that you might like to re-live...since at least half of our customers will be from places other than the US. Maybe things that are normally overshadowed by huge events (Pearl Harbor) but would be a good tale to tell (a Thai pilot who went out to shoot up the Japanese invasion fleet by himself.)

Boundaries
-Stories, not airplanes.
-Air war, not sea or land.
-History, not fantasy.
-Fun to fly, not a history lecture.









And thanks for the drop tank, Hinch. Perfect as usual.

Browsing some magazines of flight and old-school games manuals I've found a couple of good stories to be told. Or lived again.

I'll try to write them to you.
Can I send a PM? Or prefer a proper E-mail?

PM or email at YAP site (if it's still working...I cannot believe I PAID to have someone screw up our website.)

Or just discuss it here. Everyone here is a WWII history buff (or they wouldn't be here) and would be interested. That also might jar some of them into requests of their own.

Ok don't really have too much time lately to put up this hints I have in a good form.

I'm sorry to offer them in such a raw format but really no time to dig up all the details.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tex_Hill
His life in the days of the "Flying Tigers" was really interesting.

This two extracts:
On May 7, 1942, the Japanese Army began building a pontoon bridge across the Salween River, which would allow them to move troops and supplies into China. To stem this tide, 2nd Squadron Leader Hill led a flight of four new P-40Es bombing and strafing into the mile deep gorge. During the next four days, the AVG pilots flew continuous missions into the gorge, effectively neutralizing the Japanese forces. From that day on, the Japanese never advanced farther than the west bank of the Salween. Claire Chennault would later write of these critical missions, "The American Volunteer Group had staved off China's collapse on the Salween."

On Thanksgiving Day 1943, he led a force of 12 B-25s, 10 P-38s, and 8 new P-51s from Saichwan, China, on the first strike against Formosa. The Japanese had 100 bombers and 100 fighters located at Shimchiku Airfield, and the bombers were landing as Hill’s force arrived. The enemy managed to get seven fighters airborne, but they were promptly shot down. Forty-two Japanese airplanes were destroyed, and 12 more were probably destroyed in the attack. The American force returned home with no casualties.

Then we have also this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_R._Alison
With this record:

After returning home in May 1943, Alison was recalled to the CBI theater by Gen. Henry "Hap" Arnold to co-command (along with Lt. Col. Philip G. Cochran) the newly formed 1st Air Commando Group, also known as Project 9. As leader of this secret and highly innovative flying unit, Alison led a composite wing of fighters, bombers, transports, gliders, and helicopters in the dramatic "aerial invasion of Burma," dubbed Operation THURSDAY. The 1st Air Commandos supported the British "Chindit" Special Forces' infiltration of Japanese rear supply areas. In March 1944, Alison's men flew more than 200 miles behind enemy lines, transporting, re-supplying, and providing fire support for over 9,000 Allied forces. Alison's innovative leadership and combat daring as co-commander of the 1st Air Commandos helped to turn the tide of the Allied war effort in the CBI theater.
