Posted on the main www.wingsoverflandersfields.com page is the announcement that Mark Fairchild is now officially sponsoring OBD Software so that they can continue to develop flight sims. Mark, you are one of the unsung heroes of this community and thanks to your generosity, we can all look forward to more great things from OBD Software. You never seek out recognition for all that you do behind the scenes...but this one is for you, sir.

"...sponsor us in development of our next project."
Not that I am not grateful to MFair, and happy for OBD, but what does that mean in regards to WOFF since I have zero information as to this "next project"?

I am unfamiliar with MFair but for his occasional posts, but a nod and gentlemanly salute are apparently well deserved...

Many of us have benefited from Mark's generosity in the past; I continue to be humbled by the good people on this forum! As Hook would say, "Good form, Mark!" duel

Thanks folks. The WOFF community is the heart and soul of the sim to me. There are a lot of people who have given a lot of time and energy to make it the most fantastic WWI flight sim to ever come down the pike. I won't even try to name them as I would most likely forget someone. If you have hung around here any length of time you know there names. Just happy to help in a way that I am able. The spirits work in strange ways.

"Gentleman"? Surely you jest! I have been called many things but that ain't one of them.

Here is to OBD and whatever gem they come up with in their new project and whatever additions to WOFF UE that come. I remember thinking after WOFF3 that if they stopped then I would be a happy camper. They have come through since then in spades.

Wish all in the USA a Happy Thanksgiving and everyone else fair skies and a good wingman.

Mr Fairchild,

You sir are a Gentleman of the highest regard and thanks to you OBD can live on and carry on.
Again a hearty thanks from Pol and myself.

When we started out 10 years ago we certainly never thought we would still be here 10 years later.
Here is to another 10!
