Outstanding! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I saw a documentary on the Discovery Wings digital cable channel last night called "Black Cats". It was about USN PBY Catalina squadrons that flew antishipping missions at night against the Japanese in the waters around the Solomon Islands. It would be great to have something like that modelled in PF.

From the Aleutians to Australia, the PBY's did everything from air-sea rescue to submarine hunting. It provided eyes for the fleet and transportation/supply behind the lines.

If the -4 is flyable in PF, it's worth the price of admission. Hang in there, Gib.

A being breathing thoughtful breath,/A Traveller between life and death." -- Wordsworth

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall
