I’ll fly away

I have a fast Mac. . .

Jerry at 11

and no willpower.

  1. What are you flying there? Speed measured in mph, it must be an old jet. And with that ID/callsign I assume it’s British… But what?

  2. T-34? At that speed aren’t you about to shed the shiny slabs attached on port and starboard?

  3. Hi Daniel

    it’s a Hurricane, MkII I think. At the bottom of a dive.
    I should take some action shots of the T34, too.

  4. Hurricane… ooooo lots 50 mm Brownings? What was it, 8 of ’em?

    *rubs hands with glee, thinks about smuggling Mac into home just for this purpose

  5. That’s about right, yes.

    Warbirds is actually multi-platform, so there is a Linux version I believe. But I don’t think it’s a free download anymore. . . actually, maybe it is. But you have to sign up:

    EDIT: and they’re .303 (inch) Brownings. Which is pretty close to 7.62 mil.

  6. Um, I guess I meant “50-caliber”, which was also wrong, obviously.

  7. Bugger. “Calibre”.
