Just a wee note to encourage others to jump in and do a Flightnight or two. It's not that hard, and we'll be gentle (sort of). No need to make intro gifs or splash screens, or even do any more than publish a route and the aircraft to fly it.

A big shoutout to Voodoo for all the (seriously) heavy lifting of course, and planning a flight would be your homage to the Master!

If it's inspiration you need, all I do is find a hook - usually by looking at that date in aviation history. Just past was Aug 28th anniversary of the 3000th Phantom off the line, for example. even if not on the date, there's loads of ideas from the past! You didn't think I was original, did ye?

So giddy up buckos, and let's see what ya got.

I love doing them but it's hard to do them multiple times in a row...besides, it's good for some others to learn the ropes of planning and executing a FlightNight Adventure as the thrill is in the sharing in the FGUK Community.

Jump is Friends. It really fun...

VooDoo is doing a great job for the FlightNight (huge thank you for that).;)
I also understand that VooDoo wants or needs a break.
I follow every Flight Leader who volunteers for the FlightNight. :)

I really want to but I'm not even able to *attend* a flight night at the moment, let alone run one

I love doing FlightNights...the problem is that the Republic in which I live has now failed and is crashing and I'm literally months from retirement. Covid looks like its gonna reap havoc this Fall and I literally *live* for FlightNight - it's the only positive and fun thing left in Life for me right now.

And when I get lockups and shit falls apart on me mid Flight I tart throwing stuff (like my mouse and keyboard) and seeking a way to stop that from happening including venting on all you good folks.

I'll be OK. Just don't be surprised if it takes me a few months to get hold of my emotions and my temper tantrums. Shit really not good here in America right now and I'm trying to get out of the Loop of anger and frustration. I'm working hard on resolving it and apologize for the drama/trauma. FlightNight *will* continue and I'll bang it as hard as I can.

Even if it makes me weird.

We're all weird here. That's why I'm here.
My German friends think what I do is funny (planes and such, but they also have weird hobbies !).
If the times are now tense and there are no volunteers for the FlightNight, then do it as it suits you.
Take it easy, my opinion.

Would it be the one on Sept. 11th?

I’ll need to take September 18th, sorry.

Seems I actually need something like a calendar for my personal life now well. The missus has planned three days off next weekend and expects me to go to Sweden with her. She has been working her ass off during the summer as the island was flooded with tourists. So, saying no to her would brake her heart and that’s definitely not what I want.

So, sorry for my poor planning and jumping the gun so fast.

I’ll do September 18th.

FYI people :

There is a murmur on the main forum of a Memorial flight to New York with 4 Buses and a F-16 escort for the 9/11 20th anniversary. We could join in with extra escorts of VooDoo's F-35 ?

Sound cool to me. We could take off at some other field further up north, or south? (Gary-Land somewhere)
and join the formation in formation, trailing the already established group?
Hmm..

Timing for Sep.11th here would be, we arrive 20:15 by ferry and it will take me another 15 minutes to home. So I might be there if we are doing the Sweden trip.
