    Yeah I don't know how you could have missed it. :lol:

    Aw they weren't that bad. Remember these planes didn't fly themselves. ;)

    The F4F is NOT mild, it was flown very well and effectively against the Zero, the Thach weave was invented with this plane and the Wildcat did very well while it was in service.

    Are you still trying to guess the one with the name on it? If I were from Oz, I'd probably say, "Figures." :D (I"ve been watching too many episodes of "Conchords.")

    Sarcasm doesn't translate well to forum conversations, does it. ;)

    Flight of the Conchords are doing a sell out tour here at the moment; a mate of mine went, but I missed out, working at night. Very funny!

    You can't have, there's no such thing.

    .....and btw, after marking everyone as present I'd just like it noted in the minutes that Murray rules, ok? :lol:

    Awesome, Oldcrow and Gixxerman! Who woulda' thunk FotC fans here!

    "I'll just take a roll call, Jemaine?"

    "Present"

    "Bret?"

    "Present"

    "Aaaand Murray? Present..."
