Arturo from Bolivia here, I'm a 30 years old IT Manager and Network Administrator for an ISP in La Paz.

My grandfather was the first crew chief for the Bolivian Air Force (FAB) back in 1932. That year one of our pilots, Lt.Colonel Rafael Pab√¬≥n got the first aircombat victory in south america when we were at war with Paraguay. Both pilots were flying biplanes but cannot remember what models.

I believe we had french ones and the paraguayans british ones.

So, Bolivian Air Force, the first aces in South America !!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I'm fairly new to Il2 and FB starting on Il 2 in June last year and FB about Christmas time. I freely admit I'm not very good although I don't seem to have any trouble taking off.
Tend to lose energy a lot and make a complete hash of landing, this is fortunately slowly getting better.

I play a lot of different aircraft but seem to be the only one who likes the Yak 7b. Naturally living about 5 minutes from Filton airfield I am interested in any Bristol aircraft or anything powered by Rolls-Royce engines and can't wait for the Bristol Beaufighter.

Ben maybe you can help me on an idea i've been flying around... when designing an aircraft air frame do engineers work out the weight of the paint that will be applied? 1 square meter of water = 1 tonne so piant is kinda heavy...

Im oldish, a CAA Licenced AIrcraft Engineer and EX RAF ( started to get dead military ) and in answer to your question they do a small test piece when painting a plane often about a metre square and weigh it, so they can work out the weight of the paint on it, there is also a tool to measure the thickness, this works on applying pressure to it and measuring the give............ after a major repaint the aircraft is often reweighed, as as you said paint is heavy. this will the allow you to correct all up weight etc, factories tend to have a set figure based on a random sample of them coming off the line........... you need to rebalance the controls after a repainting as their balance can be out as 2 much paint can make them tail heavy etc and cause flutter.

Hi,
On my current tour I train pilots on the FA/18. You wouldn't know that by how bad I sucked the two times I tried playing online. I wonder how Joe Montana would do if he ever tried to play Madden NFL 2004 online? Anyway, if you want to shoot down a real fighter pilot look for Huggy online and send a few shells my way. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'm Shaun, 23 years old, and live in the Detroit, MI area.

I work full time as a hotel front desk clerk, and attend school full time (don't know what for yet, I'm mainly doing it so I don't feel so lazy)

I saw there was at least one more Detroiter that replied...I'm kind of surprised about the lack of reactions with that. Any time I travel in the U.S. and people ask where I'm from, I tell them Detroit AREA, because if you say you're from Detroit, people usually flinch and offer their condolences.

Big jugs and firearms! Your my kind of people!
Come on down to Texas! The gunshop down the street from me carries the Barrett 50 cal! I've got a custom Colt Commander 45 a modified SKS 7.62 x 39.mm a Browning High Power 9mm and a DPMS AR-15. Tough to own firepower like this in the UK. Thank God we have the NRA here in the states.

It's interesting for me to see where certain people come from and what they do, those who's contributions I always read, respect and find most sensible and mature that is. Now I know better as to where they are comming from.

Some of them have suprised me with their youth!

Anyway, My name is Matthew Kalkwarf, I'm 34 and I live in Robindale, Randburg, South Africa.

I started and have run my own small business for a couple of years now - communications and IT related.

I have always had a very strong military interest and still suscribe to some "Janes military" publications. I am also currently togther with 2 collegues writing a book on our own Special Forces Brigade (Recce's). It is in fact after 6 years almost ready for publication.

I did 2 years national service in the South African Defence force and became an instructor (basics for troops as well as Signals). I also for a short while was a platoon leader for a Parachute battalion (Airborne) - our war in Angola ended so the unit was disbanded.

Every opportunity I get to fly in or shoot any type of weapon, I take it. (I don't own any firearms though)

Regards,
Dynamicbass

Agreed, the recent post claiming the French airforce to be the oldest is incorrect as far as I know. (at least as far as independant airforces are concerned)

In fact after the RAF, the South African Airforce is the 2nd oldest independant Airforce.

The South African Union defence act of 1912 made provision for the establishment of an SA Aviation corps. Six newly fledged and qualified SA Airmen went on to the Royal Flying Corps' Central Flying School at Upavon for further training. They were also awarded RFC wings before the outbreak of WW1. All were posted to France with the first RFC Squadrons posted there and gave very good account of themselves. One, Kenneth van der Spuy was instrumental in the introduction of Aerial photography.

A group of a citizen force unit of South African pilots (SAAC) was set up in Britain during this time and despached to German South West Africa (Namibia) in 1915 and saw action there.

Almost 3000 South African pilots fought in WW1, all with the RFC.

A seperate, independent South African Airforce (SAAF) was created on 1 February 1920.

This was after a generous donation of 100 suplus warplanes, spares and support equipment was donated by Britain in 1919. I assume this was thanks for the 3000 - odd SA pilots who served in support of Britain in the RFC from 1914-18.

The name is ob and aged 33. I have a famous brother. I cant say who he is, but I would be surprised if U havent seen his work atleast once.

I live right between the three largest lakes in sweden, also known as the killerlakes , kind of a swedish bermuda triangle.

Im horribly disabled ( massive nervdamage) so Im unable to work......but I once was teaching art.(recovering slowly... 3rd year now).

My family takes care of abandoned animals. At the moment we have 2 crows, a sugarglider and some chihuahuas ,all adopted. Every spring we house and feed a family of sparrows wich gives me time to study them.

One of my interrests (other than fb) Is studying and illustrating extinct animals like dinosaurs and have been studying europe 150 million years ago. Especially interrested in pterosaurs from Solnhofen, Germany.
