I saw the post in ORR about the A-20G Cockpit and it showed some early views of the Gunner's station. To be truthful it touched me in an emotional way I never thought computer game could, you see my grandfather was a Bombadier/Gunner on A-20's in the 668th BS of the 416th BG in the 9th AF during WWII, and he died before I was born so I can't here his stories. Although I can get the chance to experience some of what he experienced, albiet he hated what he had to do, I still feel I'm connecting with him in some way.

Me too.
My dad was a gunner in a B-26, 9th Airforce,
344th Bomb Group.
The pic in my sig says it all, really.
That bomber going down nearly struck his
plane! I'm very lucky to still have Dad with
me and I show him screen shots of this amazing
sim. He is awestruck. I just got AEP and can't wait to show him the Me163 as one of those
buzzed his plane!
