Francis Gabby Gabrewski Francis "Gabby" Gabreski had 28 victories in Europe and then 4 1/2 more in Korea during the 1950's. He nearly washed out of Primary at Parks Air College in 1940. After 18 hours, his instructor pronounced him unlikely to succeed... the rest is history.
Richard - Herman Herman's books populate the world with flawed (real) characters and flawed (real) planes. The stories often emphasise the perspective of the C.O. who has to motivate those characters and develop tactics for difficult tasks.
James - Huston Top Gun graduate James Huston flew F-14's off the USS Nimitz and worked as a Naval Flight Officer before becoming a lawyer and a writer.
Bruce Chino Irving Chino's professional background in Optical Science and Engineering neatly complements his aviation enthusiasms. He has written books on space travel and contributed extensively to the Museum content.
David - Marshall David Marshall was one of the chief boffins at DI and his experience is indicative of the real world aviation expertise embedded in their products.
Bob de Janitor Roberts I have known Bob since the Flight Sim Museum opened as MiGMan's Combat Diary in October 1998. He encouraged me from the very beginning and made some of the earliest contributions to the Flight Sim Museum.
Robert D. - Shaw
Barret - Tillman His books are gripping reads and abound in "Easter Eggs" for military flight sim nuts. They also put the flying squarely into context as part of larger operations and strategic / tactical goals. They get my highest endorsement.
Joe - Weber A former Marine pilot who writes gripping Air Combat Novels. His books always have a strong emphasis on aerial action and Joe's background allows him to flesh out the details.
J.D. - Wetterling Flew 268 combat missions in an F-100 in Vietnam and was awarded two Distinguished Flying Crosses, fourteen Air Medals, and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He was Top Gun in every fighter squadron in which he served in the USAF.
Chuck Yeager, Combat Ace and the man who first broke the sound barrier.
