Got your message, but your mailbox is full. I figure it's not a particularly private message, so I'll just post my response here.

You asked what's going on with this thread, and here's the answer:

There's nothing to it really but having fun. The short version is this: I've got a bunch of documents relating to WWII B-17 bombing runs from a game that I've been playing for several years, so we're assigning chiefsplanet members to the crews and I'm randomly posting bombing runs. We'll go until someone finishes 25 missions, a la the Memphis Belle.

You have nothing to do except name your plane (since you're the pilot of the ten-person crew), watch the bombing runs, hope you survive (which will be nothing but sheer luck), and razz other people in the process.

You were assigned a pilot position because you're in the top 20 in terms of total posts. See the "Chiefsplanet B-17 Crew Assignments and Aircraft Naming" thread to learn about your crew, and see the "Some rules and background" threads to learn a little more about the simulations.

Ummm, so when will our first missions be taking off? I am on vacation next week so will only be on the Planet sporadically but will make a point of seeing how things are going once we get in the air.

The first mission will take off as soon as we get the aircraft named.

It takes longer to write up a mission than I originally thought, so I'll post them one plane at a time.

If BD is the pilot, this plane should be named the Slippery Nipple ...

That's cool. I also just want to say thanks for your efforts in keeping us entertained during the next couple of months with this! :thumb:
