    Default August 15, 1940: Historical 352nd VFG Cross Channel Map Story [VIDEO]

    In commemoration of August 15, 1940. (70 years ago, tomorrow.) I made an IL2 video over your insanely awesome and incredible 352nd Cross Channel Map. This coop mission was inspiration from a book that was picked up after inspiration from your map. Thanks for all who put hard work into your project. We sure do appreciate it. (I hope this is the correct section)

    Getting in a simulated hurricane or a spit against a 100 bombers and fighters really makes one appreciate what these "boys" were able to accomplish.

    Churchill visited 11 Group’s operations room at RAF Uxbridge on August 16 during a day of battle. Afterward, Churchill told Major General Hastings Ismay ‘Don’t speak to me, I have never been so moved’. After several minutes of silence he said ‘Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few.’ The sentence would form the basis of his speech to the House of Commons on August 20 and yield another great quote in 1941:

    "Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."

    Very, very nice video, Katdog. Thank you for your kind words, too, and we are happy you are enjoying the map. We certainly do.

    When one flies a 1:1 map one gets a deeper sense of what the "boys" (who later became our fathers and grandfathers) went through ... the distances were long, the flying times longer; boredom, anticipation, and terror.

    Isn't it a treat that we can experience a flavor of that, and in safety?!

    Ahh, isn't he such an Angel?
    How could you possibly shoot at him?
