Will there be single player?

He was also a bombadier and quasi-flight engineer wasn't he? I thought he went down into the nose for bombing runs, and operated some kind of engine device (cooler doors?) for the starboard engine during normal flight.

Not in the version we have, no bombardier, and no glass nose.

Terror in the Starboard Seat: A truly good read by a Mosquito FB VI navigator who rode 41 missions with a wild man for a pilot.

 

Mostly, his duties consisted of what the pilot kept yelling at him: "Look out the back!"

 

Highly recommended!

Exceptional engineering...and a large hammer to make it fit!

Best written WWII pilot autobiography I have read 👍 - by a wide margin.

Both Sid the pilot and Dave McIntosh had a good dose of self humor and Dave is brutally honest about his deeds and feelings (mostly terror...).

while it seems the mossie can be flown solo, i would suggest that in servers that do not give you your position that the navigator is still beficial as it allows the pilot to keep his eyes outward scanning for bandits while the nav is messing with the charts and looking for landmarks (or doing DR) 

 

would be interesting having long range missions being done on some servers using a nav for the mossies.

Agree.

 

I opened a post here ( Kneeboard Map Scroll. - Western Europe 1944-1945 - ED Forums (eagle.ru) ) with the hope that ED will add further functionality to the current kneeboard. This would add a LOT of immersion for the Mosquito Navigators in such a scenario as you mention. Fingers crossed they will do it.

I agree with this. It actually provides some cool options for very realistic MP missions. 

 

I'll happily have the E6B computer out and my head in the charts for some nice dawn raids on occupied France. Can't wait.

Seems like that book is pretty rare?   Are there any cheap/online copies?

Try to look for the 1998 edition, they can still be found in “new” conditions at regular prices. The 1st edition is already at collectors prices.

 

Maybe here in the UK:

It’s a shame if this book fades into obscurity just because Sid and Dave were not famous aces. Unlike most autobiographies, Dave McIntosh had a talent for writing (was a news paper reporter after the war) and did not need a shadow writer to write his autobiography for him. It also describes the war from the eyes of a regular crew that did not enjoy the fame and glory of most aces that we tend to read their autobiographies - they did pull off one glorious day-ranger mission for which they were awarded a DFC.
