@PlaneCrazy only issue is the KNUC event (I mean who doesn’t want to relive that XD) at 1830. So, I might have to leave this on early. KNUC approved trolling @ KNUC - 031830ZMAR18

Do you need some practice before hand? Just so you don’t spill fuel everywhere : )

Ok, I will try to put you at the back of the pack so you can leave without cutting the chain.

Well, you probably have to know how to actually refuel someone.
And be a decent pilot. Which is why we made this Grade 3+ and on Expert.

I know. It was a joke for @Ryan_Vidad.

Oh
Well, nevermind then.
