I got the Smoke On video and then collected from other groups, good series here and there.
Not I got back to a.b.mm.aviation and I see Great Planes - The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt!

Beaucoup Thanks Waldo, P-47 is one of my big favorite planes!

All'a yuns here on the forum that don't know Usenet, you're missing on treats!

The WWW is less than half of the internet. Usenet is not part of the WWW.
Usenet is THE biggest source of free data on the internet, bar none.
However there is a learning curve involved.

Wiki Usenet article. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet)

This page does list newsreaders including free ones. (http://docs.newzbin.com/index.php/Newzbin:NZB_Guide)

BTW, the oldest, biggest and rowdiest flight sim forum is a newsgroup on usenet!

It's best to start reading messages and getting pics first before moving into audio and video files.
Most ISP's charging more than $10/mo offer some level of usenet (Verizon does, it's not the
best by far but it works and they don't limit you, Comcast is like 2G/mo which includes getting
headers which is why the nzb method is about critical for Comcast members that don't want to
set up an account elsewhere.

You can get limited access to newsgroups from the web:
Google portal. (http://groups.google.com/?hl=en) --> the old Dejanews links there.
But they won't let you download binary files.

And there's MORE!

Great Planes, both Corsair and Hornet videos are up!

Spitfire, Typhoon, RAF #1 Squad history (England's best flying club!) with pictures from when
they had blimps and planes to Harrier ops.

That old learning curve isn't exactly a huge leap but then maybe they're out on torrent too.

Time for me to check and see what new is on the plate.

OK, no pun intended (really) but where is Waldo?

Haven't seen him for a while...
