Glad the community is still alive!

Post by Sniper » Mon May 16, 2011 2:27 pm

Fresh over from the clutches of YSP, and boy am I glad to see its active in here! For those of you who don't know:
I'm a real life USMC f/a-18 electrical/flight controls/radar navigations maintainer (a mechanic for shiny stuff), who has also taken flying lessons in both fixed wing and rotary civilian aircraft. It's been five years since I started playing YSF, which turns out to be a great time killer on really long c-130 rides.

I see a lot of the people here I know, and a lot I don't. To those who don't know me; Hi, I'm Sniper!

Much thanks for the warm welcome. I just returned from a deployment to the pacific, although I hear afghan land looks mighty beautiful this time of year. I'll get about to lurking ASAP.
