Sorry I mis-spelled "helicopter" - that's what I get for working past my bedtime. I can't fix it, either - once a poll has been answered by the first person, Blogger won't allow any adjustments.
But it is good to know we have the beginnings of a real air capability. ;)
By the way, I am very proud to see those numbers on the 3 polls at the top. Entrepreneurs bring jobs with them. Adding planes and helicopters to the small St. Maries airport brings revenue to the local economy - from mechanics to fuel, et cetera. Medical professionals bring seriously important skills and infrastructure. And while you'll simply have to take my word for it, I know those current numbers are low. ;)
My thanks to everyone who has sent email on the Comms questions I posed the other evening. Of course I don't want any of your secret-squirrel information. (My sincerest thanks to those who are/were willing to loop me in). But I'd rather not have it - anything I don't know, I can't reveal.
I am going to ask a Comms pro privately about a protocol for myself that will allow me to make contact with groups/individuals who are keeping their heads down in future conflicts. Once I have it worked out I'll post it. Obviously this is a piece of the OpSec spectrum that is genuinely filled with potential hazards for FreeFor - OpFor owns this battlespace from what I am learning. But I know I can develop a protocol that will keep you folks safe, even if it raises my profile to enemy awareness.
More when I have more.
