Congratulations on your birthday.I consider myself a "Silver Simmer." I just turned 58 in December and having been simming since 1983 on a PC. I too am more of a "Flesh Toned Flyer" than a "Silver Simmer.";-) Unfortunately, I didn't purchase any add-on aircraft until this past year with the PMDG 7 series so I am not nearly as worldly as you are. I still have not flown on-line yet.

Congratulations Gustav!!!I just went by #71 a month ago so I guess I fall in the "silver simmer" category. I totally agree with how great the 737NG is. I splurged and got the PFC Jet Console with the 737NG throttle and that really makes the sim something to behold.Tom

Well done Gustav. I too started with a 286 and have now graduated to the 737NG on an ACER Ferrari laptop. I have to fit in at least Melbourne -Sydney or reverse every day and there is not a day where I come away from it all not having learned something.By the way I am will be 55 in a month from now.For heaven's sake Chris - all those ops at your age! Retire now if you can.Gerry Engwerda

Wow it's amazing how old (and young) some are here but you would not guess that from just a name (and old in a respectfull manner, I hope I make it)!. Thanks for sharing guys. Oh and I certainly don't have anything on any of you, only 36 here ;D[h4]Randy J. Smith[/h4]

Thirty - SIX....................!!! :-spacecraft MichelC, I'm happy to say I think the position of "Daddy Dino" is definitely yours! Congratulations. How about we have a fly-in with FreddyG? in his eighties? Who knows, the 747 might have been released by then! Randy, no evil intent! (We might just need your help) ;-)Regards all,Gustav.
