In keeping with the A2A tradition of innovation, it appears that this has now
encompassed the arena of status reports and updates.

This one had me chuckling as I read it! :)

Watching these videos just put me in a very good mood. Very cleverly done video all by itself, but I can't wait to get my hands on the product behind it! I had been cautiously hoping for an update to the 377, but had no idea that one was actually forthcoming. Good news.

Word just in.....
Unfortunately, there was a set back, as an F-4 Phantom accidentally shot down the MiG-17 undergoing restoration...... :|



Jk, I have no idea whats happening behind 'The Iron Curtain', but I like this new method of quasi-update delivery.

I think Shadow and his buddies must have been discovered!! Lewis is forcing them to eat sandwiches at 1AM by now. :lol: God speed to our little friend, hopefully he is trained well in SERE and doesn't let them know he is on to them!

I fear "The Shadow" my have been captured and forced to control the APU cart or worse.left in charge of monitoring The J-5 level at the fuel tanks.

I hope he didn't have any sensitive documents with him that could be compromised.

OK, we found something. Bloomfield's apetite must be on a clock. The last time he was in lunch room he left this on the table when he went back into the kitchen to make a sandwich. One of my guys (Fearless Fred) ran in, was tempted to grab the entire clipboard, but instead pulled out his camera and took this shot. I'm glad he did, because our cover was not blown. He remained and was also able to see the exact place where Bloomfield came from. BTW, Fred noted that A2A is a little sloppy with their security as their apetite for foliage on base makes for nice places to camp out.

Looks suspiciously like the flight engineer's panel of the C-97... :mrgreen:

Is obviously the B377's engineering panel.. The question is what is extraordinary about this document. I think the biggest clue in this is the addition of the footnote that is on the panel underneath it? Actually after closer examination, and comparing it with the current panel they got rid of the cowl flaps instructions, and added a whole new panel! To be honest never paid much attention to this panel as most of this stuff had no effect on the flight so had to load it in the sim. This is excellent!!! Looks like we may be able to adjust the cabin temperature, and airflow as well. Good find! This waiting just gets harder and harder.

So, we're getting some sort of an update to the B377? I'm not overwhelmed with excitement.

I really was hoping that any efforts in the Wings of Silver line would go towards a product somewhere in between the tiny Piper, and the giant B377.

Oh well, we'll see what they announce.
