    Hello Round 2

    476 Team, hello again! Fumes making another appearance, seems that timing just never worked out before so lets see about this time. I've been a member since 2014 and got accepted to the A-10C Pipeline back in 2016/2017, unfortunately had to move and immediately went on deployment with my real world squadron which forced my time in the 476 and DCS as a whole to come to a complete stop instantly. I'm sure the lack of communication from my move across country from Florida to Washington State and then being immediately deployed had some folks not happy with me. Obviously it was not my intention to just up and leave without word. We all know it makes no sense to sit here for months on end or even years waiting on a seat to open in training and then finally get accepted just to stop your involvement without word. Hope that clears the air with that since I am wanting to reapply. Since then I have been on two more deployments which has really eaten some time away. Been home for about one month now and looking to get back into the swing of things. Hoping this time when recruitment does open I would like to travel down the F-16C path with the 421st. Pretty familiar with the bird and have been flying it since being home getting use to all the new system updates that happened while I was gone. I must say it has come a long way from where it was before I left. Although not perfect, and definitely some issues looming it is far superior than the shell I flew before leaving.

    As for the Intro, still in the Navy back in Lemoore working with the F/A-18F. I am a career Navy guy. I have been working with F/A-18s (all variants from A-F),EA-18G, and F-35C throughout my career. Been in the Navy for 15 years, just came off my sixth deployment. Been stationed in Lemoore, Pensacola, Whidbey Island, and back to Lemoore. Multiple stops along the way with VFA-2, VFA-137 (Temp), Blue Angels, Instructor Duty, VFA-101, VAQ-136, VFA-94. I love DCS and always learning new things. Hoping to make that next F-16C Class, if not, there is always next time. Hope to see you all on here and around Discord.

    Thank you, Emmy. Nothing impressive or any different than many others. Just busy which has taken away my seat time for DCS sadly. But I am back and ready to hit the ground running in the F-16!
