Message From The Admin

Hopefully you are all able to login to the new website and the new user discussion forum at this point (as mentioned, please use the "Forgot Your Password" link if you have any trouble getting in. I did extensive work on the user discussion forums to integrate the look more with the website. I also setup the permissions to protect email addresses so they should never show. The new After Action Report functions still need to be worked on, but I need to finalize the form contents. Please don't use that function just yet.

  • Take a look at the only example of an Austro-Hungarian aircraft currently flying. Incredibly, the engine is an original 1917 Austro-Daimler which had been kept in storage since its manufacture and thus had zero hours on it! This is from the The Vintage Aviator Collection page on Facebook. They are always posting great stuff.

Here's a video of the first couple of flights: Note: For some reason the photobucket video plays only periodically. There may be a usage limit on that account. Please try again later if it does not work for you.
