Hello from a flight fanatic

Post by F4U Corsair » Thu Jun 02, 2011 3:09 am

Hello, my name is Uriah, and I am a total flight and airplane fanatic, I study aviation history in my freetime and play flight sims. I joined this forum because I am not a member of any flight sim forums and I wanted access to a network that I could fly on as well as to ask some questions pertaining to how to draw a plane of my own design up. As Iceman said, I will probably find what I am looking for in the forum already. The Corsair is my favorite plane, but I have a hard time keeping it there cause there are so many others that I like almost as much as it.
