- Combat pilot in the Royal Navy flying Vickers Supermarine Scimitar F1s. Dan Hanke Visitor
I will be getting some flightsim software soon and was checking out your site when I noticed my name was the same as yours. For info I was a combat pilot in the Royal Navy flying Vickers Supermarine Scimitar F1s.
Originally designed as an interceptor its high altitude manoeuvering left a lot to be desired. It was eventually alocated to ground attack where its very high tolerance to G forces made it quite a hot rod.
I have only flown civilian helicopters so your sim packages might fill the gap.

MiGMan: Hi John, I think you are confusing me with Richard "Flexman" Hawley (featured on this site in the Combat Helo exhibit). Richard Hawley is famous in the Helicopter simulator community for his contributions to Longbow , Enemy Engaged - Apache vs. Havoc and the Enemy Engaged - Comanche vs Hokum strategy guide.
