    Default The 2020 Lend Lease participant is...

    It is a great honor to announce that Flying Helmut (Tim) has been selected as the 2020 North American Lend Lease member. Tim join the site 6 short years ago, but in that time has made a big contribution to both this online community and the gaming in England. He might also be single handily keeping Ares in business with all of his smashing repaints!

    Congratulations Tim, all of your efforts over the years have finally paid off.
















    Please join me in congratulating Tim on his selection!

    Can't wait to get you over to Ohio, Tim. We will show you a great time like we did for Dave. It will be Epic.

    Perhaps only one C-5A? It is only for a few days.

    Congratulations, Tim! I'm sure you'll enjoy it much

    A hint to our American friends: go to Dayton museum with Tim if it will be possible - you'll see it in a different way (museum, not Tim).

    Congratulations Tim. You are in for an experience and ride of a lifetime.

    I would say book passage on a ship large enough to transport the collection as I fear you'll be over weight, ah, yes, problem.... Tim don't do Sails.

    OK rethink, anyone got a star lifter going empty back to the states please?

    Only 1 word of advice Tim. When flying with Randy make sure he's on the opposite side (ie left and right). Only joking Randy, you know I'd fly with you any day.

    See you on the Dark Side......

    Cor Blimey!

    Still lost for words...………….

    What a great honour it is to be selected for the Lend Lease scheme!
    I'm deeply indebted to the Committee for thinking me worthy - now to prove 'em correct!

    Thanks to everyone for their congratulatory wishes, and thanks most of all to Herr Oberst Keith, for making the 'Drome happen in the first place!

    Countdown started; a little under eight months to go...………….

    It was a struggle for me, too!
    I found out on the preceding Friday evening, but couldn't confirm acceptance until I had checked the Work Leave Rosta on the following Monday!
    Thankfully, booking the time off was not a problem.

    Luckily the Air Force has a wing of C-17's in Dayton at Wright-Patterson. Hope that's enough

    Congratulations Tim, you really deserve this having contributed so much to the forum over the years, not least being my inspiration to start playing with WW1 planes and pretenting to be Biggles after meeting you at Hammerhead 2 years ago.

    Mind you its cost me a small fortune in that time and the planes are still flying in, so maybe Mrs V wouldn't support my view.

    Well done

    Ohio players don't know yet, but don't forget Tim is not just collector with outstanding knowledge, but even a damn good player. Don't expect mr. Boom-Boom, Happy Jammer or me, he's an ace

    Fantastic news Tim. It will be great to see you again, this time in Columbus!

    It may feel odd you won't have your collection on hand but we should be able to supply any planes you'll need for the game you'll most likely run.

    As Daniel mentioned, everyone should be at their best if sitting across the table from Tim. Not just an incredible painter but an Ace pilot of the finest degree.
