  • 2012 Origins Lend-Lease

    The first annual Origins Lend-Lease Program is under way. This year the Con Committee has selected Guntruck as the lucky member to be the Wings of Glory Aerodrome guest of honor at Origins Game Fair 2012.

    For those of you that do not know Guntruck very well, he joined the site back in March of 2010. In that time he has accomplished many things here on the site and made numerous contributions to the site that include:

    Missions Flown: 127
    Sorties Flown: 2663
    Average Sorties per day: 4.06
    Photos in Albums: 749
    Reputation Points received: 186
    Aerial Victories: 38
    Articles written: 1
    Files Uploaded: 145

    If all of that was not enough, Guntruck volunteered for the position of Central England Squadron Commander and is now in charge of over 100 members. He is also the man responsible for making sure the signature images for all of the other Flight Leaders, Squadron Commanders and Wing Commanders are made. More recently, Guntruck has become a vital member of the Unofficial Aircraft Stat Committee.

    All of these things add up to a member deserving of the first ever selection for the Origins Lend-Lease Program!

    Congratulations Guntruck!

    In order to help raise the funds necessary to make all of this happen, the Wings of War Aerodrome will be holding multiple raffles and contests over the next several months. Each member that participates in these activities will receive the newly created Origins Ground Crew medal:

    The first fund raiser we are holding is a raffle for an unopened Wings of War Kempf Fokker DR.I miniature!

    I will run this raffle in the same manner as the other ones. Tickets cost US$5 each and for every ticket that you purchase, you will receive one raffle number (sent to you via PM here on the site). You can purchase as many tickets as you like to increase your chances of winning.

    This raffle has ended.

    The winner for this Lend Lease program was Grumpybear!

    Way to go Darrel!

    Mike I read your link to Andrea's explanation also.

    Wow, that is a welcome revelation. Now I understand it better and it makes far more sense.

    I'll lean into that concept as well with the maturing of the art of air combat. By World War II pilots were sitting down in briefing rooms to be told
