Name's Jeremy Oreskovich, and I hail from currently unseasonalbly warm Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. I'm interested in all aspects of aviation -- especially interesting to me are "What-If" subjects (I am active on teh What-If board), SAR, COIN and naval aviation.

The history of "lost" and "Blue Sky" projects has also always fascinated me.

My other interests include auto racing (I am an active rallycrosser and rally driver), general history (I have my BA in the subject), music, art and science fiction.
My definition of an optimist has to be the Luftwaffe F-104 pilot who gave up smoking!

My name is Jason Schmus.  I'm 33 (34 in four days, whoopee), and live in Charlotte, NC.  I'm interested in all kinds of aviation and military hardware.  I got back into model-building a couple of years ago after a hiatus of many years.  I've come to this place via the invite at the What If Modelers Forum.  Hopefully I'll have something interesting to contribute.

Tomislav Huha, 30, born in Slovakia, living in Croatia, currently in Moscow on a scholarship (spelnig?), skydiving, climbing, hiking, if I had a good computer LOMAC (Russian aircraft only - I've never ever looked at the F-15 or A-10 - not that I think that they are bad airplanes, but they are not Russian :D), dunno what else to add...
Kind regards,

Hi,

I'm Richard Pawling, currently based in London, England.  I hail from the opposite extreme - Naval Architecture, but am interested in all the paths not taken, be they in the air, on land or at sea.  Once I've finished pretending to write up my thesis I can get back to making CG models of never-weres also-rans and should-have-beens.

Cal Taylor. I'm a retired USAF navigator and intelligence officer. Service totaled 26 years with 12 years in the cockpit of the B-52H, C-141A, AC-130A and -E, C-133, C-5A and C-130E. I stayed until it stopped being fun.

Six years ago, I built a website for the Douglas C-133, in which I served for two years (1969-71) until the airplane was retired.  The web site is http://www.angelfire.com/wa2/c133bcargomaster/home.html. After a conversation with a former C-133 pilot, I started writing a comprehensive history of the airplane. It covers the historical, technical, military, political and human context of the C-133. There are also chapters on the development of strategic airlift and on the Douglas C-132 logistics transport and would-be aerial refueler, which got only to the full-size mockup stage. That book is complete and is being delivered from the printer today, 3 March 06. Its title is Remembering an Unsung Giant: The Douglas C-133 Cargomaster and Its People.

I am also the publisher of the book, Firstfleet Publishers. Information about the book is posted on the web site or is available from me at firstfleet@aol.com. The book will soon be available in England from Midland Counties Publishing and Air Britain.

My name is Fabián Capecchi (39), i´m from Venezuela but i´m living in Puerto Rico with my family (wife and two children). I work all my life as a creative in advertising, I´m very curious end enthusiastic of the less known part of the aviation history, single prototypes specially the "oldies" (WWI, between wars and the 50´s),  non-built aircraft and forgotten stories involving aviation. My nickname comes from my page www.raravia.com (in spanish language)stuck since already four years ago, but i hope to redesign it someday and keep putting more information. I´m a member of FAV-Club.com of Venezuela (a Venezuelan aviation website) and Latin American Aviation History Society (LAAHS), but i always snooping in other forums trough my nickname.

Thanks experts for let me in!...forgive my caveman english and  i hope to help, if i could( of course)

Fabián

Hello, I’m Jens Baganz, 45 years old, living in Berlin, Germany  and earning
my daily bread as an engineer in the telecommunications branch. What’s left
over of my spare time by my job, my two kids, my wife and our 70 years old
house, mostly is used for aviation themes. Here my main interest is the postwar
french aviation, but everything else isn’t ignored, as long as it is flying. 

P.S.: No, I’m NOT a Dr., NOT mayor of Mülheim an der Ruhr and NOT a politician !!
It’s important for me, not to be confounded with this person!

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing
