      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

I guess, it's time for an update ... my last picture here was in 2010.

 

I came around in the last years ... was twice in the U.K. (my third trip follows next April) and I was twice in the U.S. (East Coast in 2014 and West Coast in 2016).

 

And this is me today ... at least not a wreckage ;)

I built a lot of civil and military airplanes over the years but also became a Plane Spotter in 2012.

I might have already posted over here, but can't remember when...

Don't have that much pics of my mug, but I think this one will do.

It's only ten years old!

That was in Québec, trying to learn to fly floatplanes.

You are spot on Trevor.....it is a Canberra complete cockpit on display at the East Kirkby museum in Lincolnshire........ there was hardly anybody about so I had great fun in all the crew seats and crawled into the nose position......can't have been much fun though in full flying gear at 40,000 feet.

New member, i've been a member before but all my info is lost in the sands of time....

 

Live in the US, love model aircraft and model trains. This is a great forum and I wanted to be a member.

 

Love the British connection since I was born on the old sod. Dad served in Lancasters; 12 Sqdn, 166 Sqdn, 7 Sqdn and then on to India where the record gets thin, perhaps 355 or 159  Sqdns. Mum served in the ATS and was one of the first REME trained women electricians and was tasked with rewiring Sherman tanks for re- use. My grandfather on my mum's side was a Merchant Navy Captain and was torpedoed and lost in Oct of 1942. 

 

Areas of interest include Bomber Command and SOE operations (particularly mid 1940 to mid 1942). Favorite World War 2 aircraft include The Lanc (of course), Whitley, Lysander, Hurricane, P-40 B/C (Flying Tigers),  Halifax,  SBD Dauntless, and F4F Wildcat. 

 

I'm always open to discussion with regard to WW2 history in general and aircraft in particular.
