Today I went to the Richard Bong Memorial Center in Superior, WI. He was a P-38 ace with 40, thats right 40 kills. I can't wait to get the P-38 in the new add on, it will be so cool to shoot down some Zeros like he did. I just want to recommend to anyone in the area to go. It is GREAT.

Keep our heroes alive!

No, but I did try the simulator. It was terrible. A bunch of red dots that you fly to until you can tell that they are planes, then shoot. Also the lower gear and raise gear buttons are switched. Oh well I will just have to wait for the add on nto get what I want. If you go check, out the library. I bought a copy of the Pilot's Manul For P-47 Thunderbolt. It is a great book. Make sure you watch the movie downstairs. It is only 9 minutes and definately worth it.
