It's BEARCAT! There were several people nominated for this, and they have all done SO MUCH in this community. The fact that others were nominated speaks volumes as to how this community feels about them, but there could only be one person who got the flight.
Please give him a warm congratulations. I am greatly looking forward to this flight that will take place in less than 3 months time. I will assure you all that there will be many photos taken (and movies if I can get my camcorder sorted) and posted on these forums.

Congratulations!

The date of the flight is June 8. I will start another thread about it closer to that time and will post pictures (and hopefully movies of it) then.

Now hear this you lot...
Do not touch that button, leave that switch alone, no pulling of any levels, and do not shout 'break left', 'pull up', 'cut throttles' to the pilot when he's landing.. also no mutinies.

Take lot's of piccies and clips...
Have fun..

Congratulations! Not only is Bearcat one of the definitive good guys, he's likely trilled by the prospect. All in all a good choice!

Have fun Bearcat - a worthy choice!

I hope your personal/employment life is going a bit better than it looked a few months ago, so hopefully 2008 will go from strength to strength post-B17 flight.

Hooray for Bearcat! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

What a very generous and kind gesture by Choctaw. Good on you Sir ~S~

When I lived in the Seattle area there was a B17 & B25 that came every summer and offered rides. They would fly directly over my house all weekend long while they were there. I'd run outside to look every time I heard the unmistakeble sound of the engines.

You guys will have the time of your life to be sure! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif
