24 and an history wart, but keep in mind i tango with IL-2 since 2001, when the forums were still on Bluebyte servers.

Actualy, the age in this forum means very little, its all about the mentality of the persons who post.
I've seen some of the older crew posting some real nasty uninformed crap and plenty of whining to go around, but overall, its them who behave more responsably and seriously towards the game.
The etarity range that gives this forum more problems are mostly concentrated on the 16-30 range.

To the older crew who wants serious discussion with little complaints, i sugest you give us a visit on CWOS.
We are gathering a wealthy number of individuals who can have a respectfull and educated discussion about the intrincacies of the game and related history, without the behaviours usualy seen in this place.

Here's the url, go there:http://www.acompletewasteofspace.com

I remember as a kid how crazy I was about my models of Corsairs, Hellcats, Mustangs and "Jap" Zeros. Now I get to explore a whole new world on the Eastern Front. There is an infinite amount of material for me to get into. Glad I'm still working because I see about $1K of upgrades on the horizon. Now, if I can teach the dog to walk himself....

Just turned 43 last Christmas, but still feel like I'm 20. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I'll probably continue to play flight sims until I die.

For you youngsters out there, don't be surprised that so many of us are old farts. We're all just kids at heart. Besides those of us that lived through the age of the Neru and Leisure jackets probably always had an interest in history and flying military aircraft. We just didn't have the computers available at the time to do what you guys take for granted today. Jeez, the first computer I can remember was a Tandy with a 2Kb cassette tape drive. The closest thing to flight sims back then was the Avalon Hill board game "Luftwaffe". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I suppose it's the subject of another thread, but is there a correlation between a simmer's age and the "kind" of flying he/she prefers?

Do we 'old guys' prefer FR with externals off, or something less rigid? Online or offline? Jets or props? Full combat all the time, or sunset sightseeing?

Just wondering. The answers, of course, are in the forum; but who wants to do all that research?

Congratulations jgur1. You are obviously enjoying life to the fullest. I used to do a lot of private flying myself but now my flying is confined to FB and Lomac. I fly on-line every Friday night with some real great guys from the Seattle area. We fly almost full real but permit external views so we can continue to watch the game after we join the angels.

My signature picture is that of my brother who was a Hurricane pilot and was killed in action in March 1942, age 21. As a matter of interest,I
have just sent off a cheque for 25 pounds to RAF records for a copy of his service record. I was fortunate to locate several letters he wrote in late 1941 which had his service number on them. RAF will provide service records to next of kin.

Wow. I'm 22 and I'm not exactly used to being one of the youngest present in a gaming community. On the other hand, the person who introduced me to flight sims was a co-worker of my father, not a schoolmate in middle school or something...

36.

This poll brings up a question that I think is interesting. I have a hunch that WWII combat flight simulations are...here's the heresy...gonna slowly fade away. Look at the demographics - younger players aren't as into it AND as we move further away from WWII interest will likely lessen....or is this a new thread?

43 year old father of 8 married 23 years and no thats not a typo, I spend more time playing online than my 4 sons do. I think the reason you see more older ppl playing is three fold

1. we have the $ to buy the cool equipment.
2. our wives arent interested in sex that much anymore so we need to find something to fill our spare time.
3. we're too friggin old to find the chickies to date us and take our minds off the game

I am 32 and I can't beleive it. It's like I blinked my eyes and what I can recall of my 20s was gone. On the plus side I had the same aches and pains I have now at 19, so I feel the same as I did when I was a teenager. I don't mind having broken so many bones, I just wish that more of them weren't mine.

I still have the folding pouch of the Jackdaw, No. 65 compiled by Basil Collier, I haven't got all of the parts anymore but it wasn't a game, more of an educational pack. According to the list inside there were 87 UK Jackdaws at the time, plus 17 Canadian ones. It was published in 1969.

Cheers!
