i first saw this silent version, maybe feb?       if you've seen the theater release and then now watch this one...  it's jarringly emotional 

 

it's prob edited too tightly for someone who didn't see the original to get the full dramatic punch, but this short version recalls back those longer sequences for those of us who did

 

if haven't seen the original, stream it on the largest screen you have, and plug it your best sound components 

 

edit:  i drove 30 miles and paid Imax prices, so...   yeah, it was worth it

 also there was a TV show called Baa Baa Black Sheep sometime in the late 70's.  I don't know what planes those guys flew but the show made me want to become a pilot.  Then later in life, I realized that I'm afraid of flying - oops.

 

They flew F4U Corsairs.

Howdy Flyers,

 

I downloaded World of Warplanes over the holidays so I could purchase Free XP packages to get Tier X tanks on my WoT account.  I am really bad with Planes versus Tanks but my settings weren't good before so I didn't realize that this game is actually fun (Bted72 always made it seem like tons of fun). I recently returned to playing WoWP again for the Gold missions and now I like playing it as a break from WoT.  However, I don't know which planes are good and which ones aren't - for new/bad players.  I have several Premiums in my account from the Holiday Crates and I'd like to know which ones I should use to have fun with because I have no clue:

:honoring:

I just stumbled upon this thread...I ended up here the same way, checking out holiday crates and saw the WOWP variety had XP in them. It was like an answer to a prayer. Patch 9.20.1 in the Fall of 2017 had drained my entire XP reserves finishing the British HT and TD lines to get the FV215b and the FV215b 183 (Deathstar) before the Badger and Super Conquerer came in. I had hoarded XP and ground those lines for what seemed like forever to finish off those Brit tanks in time. Those WOWP crates were awesome...filled my big black sucking XP hole in a little, even helped me finish my grind to the JP E-100, and I ended up with a bunch of premium and reg tech tree WOWP planes which were just sitting in my account until about 3-4 weeks ago when I decided I would take a WOT break.

 

I suppose now I will see you in the Sky instead of Himmelsdorf.

Thanks. I will log in and have a look. I do not recall ever seeing the Anniversary Aircraft tab in the Missions window. Its that still available post-2.0 or even 2.05?

After reading Rita's blog from Dec last year it appears Aircraft Anniversaries got axed under Update 2.0, with no word on when they will return. https://ritastatusre...ev-qna-part-1/

Don’t bother.  It’s one of those brilliant ideas they removed when 2.0 went live 1 year ago.  Oh sure, they promised they’d reinstate it after a patch or two.  The only thing worth playing this game for after you unlock everything (since, there’s no clan wars or other end game content) and they claim it needs to be rebalanced.  Not sure why,  logically they leave it as is and rebalance down the road, or maybe work on that while 1.9 was live and 2.0 in development.  Don’t see how the rush of shoving 2.0 down our throats resulted in a great influx of new players to the EXISTING player base panned out, but in typical soviet bloc mentality, they merrily work away ignoring/abusing their customers while asking narrow crafted questions regarding what junk they’ve accomplished to devise that no existing players ever requested.

 

So, same ol same ol here in WGville, corner of Persha and Incompetence.

 

edit: first question of this blog.
