    Well,

    I think I did "ok"

    DCS is very different when you know someone is watching, that's for sure. Didn't perform my best start (didn't stick to a good flow in the cockpit) Got off the ground ok. Didn't lose it entering the clag. I misread the Tanker TACAN channel so had to ask for reconfirmation on that. Discovered that I was damn near right on top of the tanker! Bounced around too much trying to get gas but managed to stuff a few thousand pounds in before RTBing. I think I flew the ILS very well. Tried to stay patient and not rush the process. Let the alignment come to me instead of chasing it. I was mentally prepared to turn outbound and do a procedure turn if it felt like I was getting too close too soon but it all centered up nicely. Got a little slow on final at one point but broke out right on the centerline. A bit too aggressive with aero-braking and scraped the tail a bit. Got whoa-ed up, off into the SE EOR to secure stuff and got it shut down in G2.

    All in all, I'd give myself maybe a 6/10 on the hop. I know I can do better. Just let the nerves get the better of me a bit.

    Big shout out to Snoopy and Recon. I watched both angles of the demo hop they each posted to YouTube. Extremely helpful intel.

    "Emmy"

    Nice. No aerobraking in the A-10 though.

    Holding the stick / yoke back is just force of habit...

    Greased the landing though!
