A Memorial Flight along the coast
Our community will do a group flight in memory of Igor. It will take place this Friday March 30th, at 1900 UTC (click here to compare with your time).
The flight will consist of a group formation over the coastal area of Caucasus, between Novorossijk and Soshi. It will be an opportunity for everyone to share its best memories with DCS World. Everyone is welcome, from old grumpy pilots to fresh wings. We’ll held a minute of silence midflight. Also, we do not want this day to turn into a massive fireball. This is a memorial flight, any dangerous behavior inflight will get immediately kicked. Since there will be obvious difference in skills and we want to allow everyone, there won’t be any define formation. Just stay grouped, and respect some safety distance according to your level.
Remember : This is a day to remember Igor and honor his memory.
