Time to resurrect the YS Thunderbirds!

Post by Basco » Sun Feb 24, 2013 6:11 pm

It may seem like it's off the top of my head but what if I were to say I may be able to resurrect the YS Thunderbirds with the current skills? I may be able to pull it off because I am also an actual pilot as I said in my introduction. I currently have a Precision Sidewinder 2 Joystick to use. I have been practicing with this joystick for about 2 years now and have it pre calibrated for precise formation flight.

Tell me what you think about resurrecting the "Virtual Ambassadors in Blue"
It may seem like a long shot, but I think it's definitely possible with the right people.
Who thinks it would be awesome to resurrect them?

You came in at a good time. I was secretly right in the middle of getting something together for the YSThunderbirds, but now I guess that I have to come out an announce it. I want to see what you got! ;) I say we resurrect them!....................well, I'm not sure if they were as big as the YS Blue Angels back in the day before I was here, but still!...

When it comes to the the Virtual Ambassidors in Blue, we should go for it! I never like to see a squadron with potential eat the dust like that. :D

I'm keen for a diamond position. Left or Right wing if I can practice well enough, otherwise I am very steady in Slot.

There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

As long as we can practice at least some of the time together (college schedule is difficult), count me in. I know I'm a Navy/Marine Corps guy but if I see this much support already, something is going to come out of this. I'd be pretty happy with just about anything. Solo would be nice though :D

We have at least 5 people now right?

Let's all make it happen.

Attention fellas! I am currently making a word document on everything you need to know, and the Positions Roster!
Sit tight and I'll have it released by the end of the night.

Hmmmm, I guess I should really not secretly do stuff under the covers and wait, because this stuff happens.
