I just turned 48 on October 3rd. People tell me I look younger than my age so that's good enough for me!

Old enough to know better, but usually don't!

I'll be 70 this coming January.

The prevailing attitude seems to be that 50 is the “new” 40 so you’re good to go!

73 last June


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

45 and we keep getting older and older. Unfortunately our hobby doesn't attract too many young people. Even I stopped simming for like 8 years before making a return with Flight Sim 2020.

Between my wife's nephews and other teens I know who are kids of people I work with, not a single one of them plays any kind of military flight sims or racing sims. It's all Fortnite, mobile games and Call of Duty and other similar first person shooters.

Sims still do to some extent, but forums are not popular with the Millennials and younger.

Even Facebook is fading now with the younger crowd. My 19 year old niece recently told me that FB is for "old people".


As far as discussing PC game simulations, places like Reddit are much more popular now than the traditional forums.

64 - how did that happen?
