A good flight and a significant one for us. Not since the Final Flight of the Vulcan have we done something like this.
Turnout was good, but was marred a bit by a certain cretin "Taking charge" before the flight start time and leading a few off before the flight. Once a twat, always a twat.
Anyhoo, well done to those who made the effort, it was certainly a sight to see.

Just Chrome Casted the first 20 minutes up onto my big tv - WOW WOW chuffing WOW !!!
Amazing to see all those DC's in a group flight and such great graphics from Stu.
Will watch the rest tomorrow - I just wish FG behaved itself on flight night and I could have stayed with you for the group flight, sad face.
GEED - well done mate - nice atmosphere among the multinational people in the flight regarding this 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings and other Operations during those few days in June 1944. Amazing.
Lightning DOES strike twice.

Oh man, I do not believe that a German dares to write such a nonsense like Flughund did.
My name is already burned in FG-Forum, so I spare to comment there.
But here I would like to express apologies to all of you who feel hurt (I would hope that nobody takes people like Flughung seriously, but still...).
There is no doubt that the German government under Hitler was aggressive (not defensive!), brutal, reckless, inhuman, racist and many other negative things.
Bringing WW1 forward as a reason is a typical Neo-Nazi argument. Of course there is absolutely NO excuse for the things that Hitler-Germany has done.
Would be good to talk to Flughund and try to find ways to make him read books or watch documentaries so he does not stay as stupid. But after some previous communication involving him, I am sure he is not up to talking to RL-person in real
A real German Nazi (like Flughund might very well be) is not provoked from hints to the holocaust. They really hate Jews and do not need any reason to justify holocaust except that "those were just Jews".
If you seriously want to provoke a real Nazi you will have to hint to the crimes (mainly mass murdering civilians) conducted by the German army especially in the east. Especially the SS. A real Nazi will try to defend the honor of the fabulous German army and will claim that SS was a horde of hidden Buddhist monks not capable of doing any harm.
You are probably right. I admit that I have a VERY hard time letting a post like Flughund's just sit there uncommented. But yeah, commenting it also gives it importance which it does not deserve
