I´m proud to inform the Community that a new Virtual Outfit is about to start operations.

The 475th Figther Group "Satan´s Angels" will be declared "Combat Ready" very soon.

Actually, the Website of the Group is under construction, and will be opened ASAP.
The name "Satan´s Angels" is historical, and we DO NOT endorse, or support Satanism or any other religious aberration.
The name was kept only for historical reasons.

The true 475th FG "Satan´s Angels" was operating from bases in New Guinea and later in the Philippines from 1943 to 1945. Many of its pilots were Top Aces, the more representative of them being Thomas McGuire, the second ranking US Ace of WW2 with 38 victories.
Charles MacDonalds was the Group Commander from late 1943 to the end of War. He bagged 27 confirmed victories during WW2.
The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was the plane that equipped the three Squadrons that were part of the Group: 431st FS "Hades", 432nd FS "Clover" and 433rd FS "Possum". There was a HQ section or flight, too.
The virtual 475th FG will participate in online wars, and of course will fly whatever plane will be at hand. We will fly for the Allied (red) side.
As Soon the website will be online, I will post the link here and will open the recruitment office.

Thank you!

YZRide! How are you, old Mate!
Of course I remember you!
Will be nice to have you in!
Please send all the infos to my E-mail :

Col._Douglas_King#hotmail.com

I will need your virtual "Biography" as a WW2 pilot to open your pilot page, and your edited WW2 pilot picture.
And if possible, if you dont have it yet, make a MSN account (it´s free) as this will be widely used to keep contact between the Group Members. (We will need to have a talk in real time, so the MSN is really a good tool for this).

Welcome aboard!

Not a problem, If you have a Biography outline made up, so all recruits have to do is fill in the blanks. Goto www.475fg.com (http://www.475fg.com) and click on "join us", then scroll down and then click on "application" and see how Savlan did his. Just an idea.
