He's fine. Apparantly this "crash" never happened. He just hasn't been on in awhile. Whoever started this is pathetic. It's one thing to make a practical joke, but it's completely different when it involves the threat of someone losing their life. I'm not asking you to fess up, though I would like it if you did, so we could all flame you. I am asking for the pathetic loser that started this never to do it again. If I find out that something like this happens again, someone might have a run in with someone, and it won't be pleasant.

Not only that, God forbid that one of us in the community ever IS in a major accident, everyone will think it's a hoax before sending "get well" messages.

Well, if you look at it another way, we all got our wish-

GE is fine.

That's true, but still. It's not a joke, and I just want to snap this guy's neck now. If I'm not careful, I'll do it.

One of the craziest things ive seen on a game forum in the last 6 odd years of using em!

I mean ive seen a fair few community members of various games fall very ill or pass away and posts have been made to wish them well or pass on sympathy to loved ones, but ive never seen one that turned out to be a hoax!

It had to have been started by someone you know GE...

That IL2's wing looks loose, its gonna fall off. k thx.

I understand you feel you've been framed but don't let it cause you to do something foolish like threatening someone. Just leave it - have a laugh & be happy GE is awright. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Maybe it was a miscommunication. It hard to know the true identity behind a username and it's easy to get things mixed up.

Don't be so quick to bring out the torches.

I think we should try to look at this positively... the guy who ran this hoax will probably never be heard from again, but look at the response this news got nonetheless, and the fantastic goodwill, spirit and support from this community.

We were taken advantage of because we couldn't imagine someone hoaxing about something this serious or emotive. The compassion, prayers and goodwill were all genuine. Its responses like that that make me appreciate this community. Plus, to cap it all off, GoldenEagle is A-ok. Which is definately good news!

I don't think anyone blames you Boosher - just poking fun out of happiness that everything is o.k. Though it was in poor taste I'll take the hoax over the real thing every time. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The bottom line is that we are extremely happy to know that GE is okay....Had us all worried, but again, in the end, prayer did work....

On behalf of all the ProudBirds, I want to say thank you for all your prayers.....
Its nice to know we are all virtual aviators in a virtual world, but with real feelings....
And even though we don't know each other, this only got to show how much we care.

God Speed to all...........

This sort of thing happens online. It has happened to me and a group of friends. It's too bad but it does show what a good community we have in the way we all responded.

glad that he's OK, but weird/bad behaviour to spread the rumour in the first place.
