    Just introducing myself. I'm an aviation nut that has no wings so I hang out in the Flight Sim world. I came across this site and was amazed at the wealth of information here. I doubt i'll be very loud here but I love to read so i'll be sneaking around in the back alleys of the forum. I'm getting some guys together in our Flight Simulator X community to form a B-17 group. (A2A Simulations B-17G) Seems silly to real pilots but its fun.

    Thank you for the welcome. I'm glad to see so many B-17 nuts here. :p

    I come from the Florida Keys down at the very bottom of Florida in the US. Yes its sunny but when its hot you feel like your swimming through the air.

    Thank you again for the welcome.

    Welcome aboard! Word of caution about the back-alleys of the board....don't take your shoes off, Lucky's been back there and there's no tellin what you might step in! :lol:

    I spent a year and a half in Orlando, goin through various Navy schools at NTC there before they closed it and shipped it up to Connecticut (I think). I know whatcha mean about swimmin though the air.
