my main name skyller2s is because my real name is skyller As for Guardian-1 this came for a need for a proper AWACS callsign. Guardian came to mind after i saw the movie legend of the Guardians. But just guardian wasn't enough, so remembered capt Bartlett (heartbreak one) from AC5 and combined the two in Guardian-1 as for Redtail-1 I shouldn't have to explain.

Sol, Is in fact, a star. Like every other. It's location makes no difference on what it is. :|

Yeah. That was the series events that actually led me to YSFlight. Skyline was a moderator on an Ace Combat board at the time.

I don't. Never played any Ace Combat.

Now a show of hands from any of you that have even heard of a couple of boardgames called "Downtown" and "Elusive Victory" by GMT Games.

2010, i was a big fan of a novel series called Warriors/ Warrior Cats

I went to the website an tried my name and my city, it ended up with Hawktalon, Which was my my second ysflight name.

I decided the name was too long so i decided to shorten it by adding the star instead of talon: Hawkstar. The name got stuck with me ever since.

This might be lengthy and I am probably building a reputation for that. ;)

VNAF ONE: Back in seventh and eighth grade, a group of my buddies and I decided to make up our own country and each of us run our own part of it, of course me having the military. After a while, we turned on each other and I killed them in their sleep with my ninja-jedi-monkey-socom-knights. I took over and renamed it Vetriti Narod (at the time I thought Vetriti meant "air" in like Serbian :? ). After settling on a name, I used time while teachers talked to sit and draw lots of things starting with a map of my country and all it's fictional cities. Some of these have been made in YS such as Vice City and Yemen Valley are on this map. I created a military that would become one of the most powerful (in the surrounding world I made called Yiper) called the Vetriti Narod Air Force. This air force is based mainly off of American military aviation with some European stuff that I liked such as the EF-2000. I've recently renamed the country and VNAF Aerobatics to Visoko Narod (deriving from Slovenian for "high nation". There's no reason I used that language besides the fact that it made a cool acronym and it sounds cool). I use these fictional locations for a lot of RL fictional use whenever I can. It gives me a place to imagine and make real in my own mind whenever I want to draw a city or random Air Force jets in the sky, I use VNAF logos and information.

Anyways (you probably think I'm . . . off. I'm not lol) VNAF ONE is supposed to mean I am the president of Visoko Narod. The Air Force in particular at least and is meant just like Air Force One.

Warthog East: This is simple. This just comes from a number of people I flew with and still do now who called me Warthog because that became my favorite aircraft and East because I flew the A-10C East Coast Demonstration in my first YS air show and still do today.

Number34: This number comes from the number I've been assigned on my MCJROTC drill team. This number means absolutely nothing and is just to use for numbers on team gear and rifle stocks. Even today as commander, my number hasn't changed just because of my rank and status.


Now you are all free to come slap me for writing so much but I just love to write and type for some reason I don't even understand.
