Long flights, short flights, low and slow, fighter CAP...I'm interested in them all.
Having spend a good many hours doing scenarios back in the days of Air Warrior when I was
the Buff CO and dedicated many hours to preflight planning and organizing, I know what an effort
it is to keep something like your current MP sessions going on track.
In AW I was used to spending and hour in the "ready room" as we prepared for a mission and
then 3 hours in flight, assuming I didn't get shot down. This was three times a week for a month
for each Air Warrior scenario. So long missions or multiple days/evenings are nothing new to me
I've also flown my A2A B377 from KOAK to PHNL, real time. US East Coast to the UK, real time.
Multiple real-time hops on an around the world flight.
OTOH, I do enjoy a good romp around the virtual skies in something that can climb in excess of 3-4K fpm
and allow me to "turn & burn" casing another pilot or two in a dogfight situation.
I really enjoyed my first MP flight last Saturday and the challenges it presented in linking up with the B-17's and
staying within range of them as if on a wartime escort mission and getting back to the group after chasing a
mythical Bf-109 or two away
So, barring a real-life commitment from time to time, I'm in for the MP sessions as they come.
