Random draw?

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

I really want to take part in this, but I live in a part of the world where preserved WW2 relics are a bit of a rarity. I wanted to know if closely-related planes are considered, such as a Harvard-- which doesn't appear in the game, but is very close to a Wirraway; or a T-33, the trainer variant of the P-80; or a CAC Sabre as opposed to the American F-86.

 

Also, how long will this offer stand? I live in Malaysia, but I'll be visiting Thailand next month and I may hop by their Air Force Museum to snap myself next to a Spitfire XIVe in Royal Thai Air Force markings, just so that I can take part in this. :child:

Well, I have a lot of old pictures of me running around the U.S. and taking pictures of planes, and I do have one selfie.

 

Spoiler

 

I do quite love my Corsairs, both in real life and in game, so I've taken as many opportunities as possible to snap photos with them, in this case I was taking a selfie with an F4U-4 Corsair on USS Midway in San Diego.

 
 

I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

I'm in reach of that place but never had the will to find the way there...

 

I might want to do this if it's not a random draw............:hiding:

So glad to have taken a picture of World War II history! (This was at the Smithsonian in Virginia, which in my opinion is better than the Washington, D.C. one.)

Another anime girl eh? Sorry to say but that's a picture of a B-29, which isn't in the game  yet. Still a nice selfie you took though.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

How recent do these pictures have to be?... I don't know of any aviation museums in my state, but I do have a picture standing in front of a Hawker Hurricane when I was 10.

If memory serves me right that museum has a couple rare birds that are in game, like  a Hawk III and a Hawk-75M in RTAF markings as well.

By sheer good luck, I was off to visit the New England Air Museum today.

 

So here's me and their F4U-4 Corsair.

https://i.imgur.com/q4haQyN.jpg

...OK, so *technically* it is an XF4U-4 Corsair.  

 

To be on the safe side, here's a P-47 Thunderbolt.  Same museum.

https://i.imgur.com/NFdaUQK.jpg

Fear the US Multis!  :)

Sorry for the links, but the images are HUGE and I don't have time now to re-size.  Will fix later...if I remember.

 

They have a few other aircraft that are in the game on display too.  I'll post those elsewhere in the forums when I have more time.  I have a birthday to celebrate.

Mom is an engineer.  I wear the shirt she gave me on my birthday to make her happy.  Luckily, enough of her genes rubbed off that, while not a full engineer, I can get the joke.  :)

When is this contest over?  There is a WW2 wing at the Museum of Flight that has lots of planes.

I have a joke for your mom:

 

There were 3 engineers on a road trip, when suddenly the engine quit.

The electrical engineer says "I bet it's the battery.  I'll go back to town and get us a new one and we'll be good to go."

The chemical engineer says "Nah, we ran out of gas.  I'll go back to town and get us a few gallons of gas and we'll be good to go."

The software engineer says "Let's try getting out and then getting back in again!"
