The old old heads of SimHQ know who he is. I am on a quest to look for him. Anyone heard from him?

I hope he's doing ok. Lots and lots of long time SimHQ veterans are long gone from the site.

The problem with getting old is not being able to remember some things...like my forum pswd, for example. So I poured a little tequila on the issue and that fixed that!!

I'm still alive and kicking here in St Louis. I retired for good in 2017 and haven't regretted it a bit. I replaced flight sims with my old childhood hobby of model plane making, and so I've been quite busy building stick and tissue models from scratch.

Has anyone heard from my old pal Leon "Badboy" Smith? I'd love to get back in touch with him.

So, is this the Old Fart Cartholder meeting? biggrin

Nice to see you all well, especially in these days.

Heck, just came to realize next year it will be two decades of SimHQ for many of us. eek2

And for me that means over the sum of my lifespan I will have been a member on this site for longer than I haven't. Yikes!

That's true, soon to enter my third decade here, but even so the balance is in favor of the years I have not been a member. If I make it to 2033 then the scales are balanced biggrin

In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Hehe, some old farts here.
There`s quite a few retired pilots that has flight models or model flying as a hobby.
We have a club here that even has a guy who flew Spitfires in the Norwegian Air Force.
I think he has some hours in the F-104G as wel.l
Here is the guy. 96 and still going strong.
