Development on Nantucket took a two-week hiatus this month, as my wife Dawn and I cavorted around Europe. She just finished her tenth year with Games Workshop (of Warhammer & WH40K fame), and to celebrate they flew us to the UK for a party, but not before a three-day stop in Dublin to visit friends. After the party, we moved on for a week-long honeymoon in Rome. Sucks to be us, yeah? 😉
One of the highlights of the trip for me as a plane freak was a visit to the amazing museum at RAF Cosford in the UK. Ian Pearson of SimFlight picked me up at the Birmingham train station, and along with his wife and little Pearson, proceeded to show me the countryside. It was a Saturday I won’t soon forget.
I’m back in the developer’s saddle now, so while I’m building KACK, here are some pics for you.
