    A special plane in the end

    A wonderful group and with magnificent history. As Kevin said, they don't get that coverage like the Fighter or bomber crews but had an even important task to do. Thanks for showing.
  7. Dear loyal members, I've introduced a Subscription level to our Forum. It has been several months now without almost any Donation with exception of two regular contributing members however costs of our Forum hosting reached a new scale. I'm paying as off now €130 a month for hosting costs other costs not included (extra security, domain name..) earlier on it has been bearable since our Forum didn't was that big but since a few months more posts were regularly made as well as images posted. Since nothing gets deleted (or there has to be a very good reason) the size only increase and so do the member numbers and so on... I hope with the subscription to make these costs bearable and to improve the Forum. There have been a few downtime because of the size our server / database is getting and I've regularly to update it (increase memory which costs money) and when I moved away from a less reliable host to a dedicated Forum hosting service. I want to thank all of you who made donations before. I hope via this new system to give you more in return. I've done raffles in the past, where I gave away items for free or for a little sum, I bought these from my own money etc. to give something in return. I'm planning when the Subscription are successful to do this again and a few little extras. I also want to improve the Forum as well since I currently do it all myself because of the monthly costs I already have to make. I can add plenty more advertisements to the forum to bear a little more of the costs but I'm choosing not to, in order to increase my user's usability of the forum.

  22. Dear members, I also run in my free time an online history magazine (free) named Argunners Magazine. Here various articles are posted per month dedicated to World War I, World War II, Vietnam War and others.. Also news related to books, dvds, museums and so on.. Argunners Magazine also posts reviews on books and they are read and used quite often. Since this is becoming very popular and more publishing houses contact me to have books reviewed. Therefor I offer and ask if any of you, HWMF members, are willing to review books for Argunners Magazine? In return you receive various books for free, I only need a review in return. Just let me know if you are interested to do so and which type of books you would be interested in. http://www.argunners.com Yours truly, Bart
