Haha, thanks epower, I might dip my toe in, who knows. I do like reading the ones on there.

I've noted the current date seems to be around mid March 1918, so theoretically it should be possible to start as a USAS pilot around then, that would interest me.

I'll have a thunk.

"A great deal of an aeroplane could be holed without affecting its ability to fly. Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."
