|Profile:||I have been playing with flight sims since the '80s "Battle Hawk" on my Commodore 64, but I could never get the hang of IL-2. I never managed to take off or land the darned things in one piece, so it sat on my shelf. After watching the Preddy commemoration movie done in Warbirds III and a recommendation of IL-2 from a friend, I started by first looking for an Online Squadron to join. A lurker by nature, I was never comfortable with just dropping into an online event. The immediate contacts by Link and Persecutor, and the welcome I received as a prospective member, made me feel right at home. We tend to trade as many barbs and compliments as we do electronic lead. The patient efforts and encouragement of the squadron members eventually enabled me to get off the ground so now the goal is to have as many landings as take-offs...
Although we strive for excellence, becoming a dominating online force is not a goal, so we don't assign wingmen, flights or squadrons. The 352nd VFG is more about honoring the men of the real 352nd by simulating what they went through and enjoying each other's company while doing it.
