Harry, welcome to the fray.

MadWasp, lost a wingman who actually was promoted all the way to Captain, 15 victories, 6 medals. Can't ask for more. As far as I remember he finished the same way. He was tough enough to survive the crash but perished in the hospital. Infection I suppose.

"Take the cylinder out of my kidneys,
The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
