Okay,, well then I think I have to post my head as well.

I haven't showed my ass around here for quite a while. But I keep just lurking until a really interesting game pops up. ;-)
IL2 COD has been a dissapointment so move on to the next one. But for sure I will be back.

It's nice to put a face to a name tankeriv.

The rock formation and scenery is nice. Were you on vacation somewhere?

I am so jealous of you guys that get to fly. I've only been up in a private plane once, never a warbird though. Too many domestic airline flights to remember, though they were good for what they were. I tried to post a pic, but I broke the internet.

My wife would love to hear that...she's actually 9 years older than me. biggrin Got me a cougar! wink

Of course there's some age where age no longer is a factor...we all just become kind of old...lol. I do like to kid her though by saying I was in 4th grade when she graduated. duck

Me and some members of our Club of military history dared to simulate elite airborne troops, performing an individual parachute jump. We represented various armies of early cold war era, namely Belgian 1ste Bataljon Parachutisten, Israeli airborne troops from Yom Kippur period and Czechoslovak airborne troops.

Aeroplane: Antonov An-2 biplane trainer, jump altitude: 1200-1400m
----------------------------------------------------

6 hours of theoretical and semi-practical training


On the airfield: you will land here and nowhere else


Waiting for the weather window


On the double! (my wife on the far right smile )


Soon-to-be paratroopers


Venerable Antonov-2 taking off, flying since 1947


Soon-to-be paratroopers II, a bit nervous


Me airborne, proper landing drill performed


Fresh paras + glider infantryman from 82nd abn


Now proudly wearing maroon berets


All armies friends here



We had a tremendous fun and our families are now tired from our non-stop bragging hahaha

In the meantime I am going through individual tasks from Pre-parachute selection training for British Para Regiment, which is also fun but not shared by all (just did 1.5 mile in 9:05) Wounded

I'm really stunned to hear that. I would have never guessed she was older than you, much less by 9 years.

Way to go. Good photos and a good achievement. You will always remember that you had the guts to do it. It will always be there for the rest of your life.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Exactly, she looks like 30. No way would I say 40.

While we don't have the hills here in Belgium we do have an AN-2 at the local airstrip at Sanicole
and a plug for the airshow on the 16th-18th September http://www.sanicole.com/
Sadly I'll miss it this year as I have to go to Scotland and this year my step son invited me to work at it too

The man who most of Hyperlobby chases is actually a pretty mild mannered engineering nerd:

Sorry, wife asked that I remove the last one as she is a bit shy.

If you can defeat me in a fair same altitude duel, you are either Hartmann's ghost or you have a ganja problem that needs treatment.

Like asking weird questions and are good at math? Maybe you can join us at the Jacobs School of Engineering, UC San Diego. Tackling the grand mysteries of the age with science.

Dont take it badly WhistlinggDeath, but... uhm, Is that a toupe? Admittedly you look way too young to need one but still I kind of feel like it is.

Nothing bad about it, just... No offence intended.

LOL, no, my family just has the bushy hair genes. It's actually the reverse; I've been told since age 13 that I need to get a haircut. Once I do, people still say that. The only time this has not happened is when I served with the Marines after university and had about 1/4 inch of hair all around for 2 1/2 years. In my case almost bald was neater and cooler than hair but took a trip to the base barbershop every single stinking week.

HAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAH

Nope, not so skilled to play online :P
Hyperlobby, anyway? Barely heard of it.

In the land of farmers that Italy is, internet is a recent discovery. Imagine about FAST internet...

But if you tell me what flying games you have I'LOVE to give it a try!
Never been afraid of losing and as Tom suggested me I have to take something back.

En garde!

@TOM and evryone else in this thread: I officially apologize, but I've NEVER EVER EVER seen hair so bushy on a man before. It's an italian thing I suppose...
Still, Tom, your comment confirm me you thought the same.
