Hey Everyone,

I am currently editing a WW2 combat flight sim book for release next year and features various tactics, aircraft and technical issues such as equipment, software, etc. Of course, IL2 is part of the book and my general inspiration for it.

Now, I am looking for a groovy and catchy title. If you should have one, do let me know, and if it's a winner, a copy is yours.

What's not to like?

More info is sketchy at the present time as the manuscript and artwork is currently in production.. I want to make sure that the online community is cared for as well as what software is necessary to take part of the great crowd.

Check Six is a title of a previous book. Kinda like the others. Keep them coming!
