Victory Video

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Before we shut this place down, I wanted to put up the little video I put together for every teammember from Avsim. It's simply a rundown of the individual pilots and the machines they flew. I do hope I didn't miss anyone - if I did, it was completely inadvertant and I apologize.Please note that while it was my original intention to have every pilot mated with their signature aircraft, this was not entirely possible because:1) I have a limited library of aircraft.2) If I did so, the vast majority of this video would've been Mustangs, and there are enough of them in it already.:-lol To accomodate a variety of planes and still remain faithful, aircraft that I possessed were assigned based on threads, with crucial legs and vintage aircraft given priority. Otherwise, I downloaded freeware / used alternates in my collecitons and matched ppl up with their choice of machine.Last thing - This file is HUGE! 20mb minimum. If you have serious problems viewing it, please let me know via PM so that I can post a smaller version.http://home.comcast.net/~sfoofficer/RTW06_0003.wmvAgain, a pleasure racing alongside you all. Best Regards,

Great video, Alex. Please consider uploading the file to the library in case the link should have problems in the future. Would be nice for all of us to have this summer when we reflect back on our 2006 race.Cheers,Greg

Excellent Alex! Thank you for doing that.Someone suggested that you upload that to the file library. Unfortunately, we do not allow movies in the library. However, because I am the janitor around this place, I have my own secret stash area, and I have uploaded it there. You can find the movie here from now until they remove my privelages to have a "broom closet" at this place. The file location is here:http://www.avsim.com/pages/tom/RTW06_0003.wmvAnd... your movie just made the agenda at our September conference and exhibition in Washington D.C. :)Again, thank you for doing that.

This is fantastic! Great work!Incidentally, it looks like I'll be able to attend the Avsim conference this fall. Normally, starving students like me don't have the money to do this stuff...but fortunately I go to Georgetown, which is in DC!Can't wait to see it on the big screen!Best,Matt

if airfare to DC doesn't go up from the prices I saw last week I might just make it this year (does that invitation still stand? ;)).

It does, but it's your turn to buy, and I know how you Dutch feel about separating your cash from your wallet... In fact, isn't the favorite Dutch sport involve fighting off moths or was that making copper wire??? :-lol

Hi all,I just want to echo everyone else's sentiments. I was sorry I couldn't contribute more this year, but had great fun the times I could join in. It was clear from the collaboration both online and on teamspeak that this is a focused group of people, and I felt privileged to be included.I will definitely see everyone again for next year's race. If anyone comes up with something in the meantime, shoot me a pm. Maybe I'll get to meet some of you in person at the Avsim conference this year, since it looks like it will be held in this neck o' the woods -- which is nice!Regards,Craig "CB" Taylor

I'm really glad everyone enjoyed the video. Thanks for all the positive comments, and I'm really honored that it made it into the venue for the conference (note to self - get plane ticket and hotel reservation). :-jumpy For next year's RTW, I might use this kind of thing as a recruiting tool.BRegards,
