pitot linkage: aircaft that use actual airspeed indicator dials often depend upon a device called a "pitot tube," named for the person who invented the device, that is usually attached to the outside of the fuselage, or on one wing. In teh purely-mechanical types that prevailed up through the twenties and on into the early forties,   airspeed is measured via a tiny airscrew inside the tube, that sends its revolutions through a mechaniical linkage (usually a spinning cable, but knuckle-hinged driveshaft-style linkages also were used) to the relevant dial or dial cluster in the cockpit of the aircraft.

More than you ever wanted to know, I realize, but I have to spout my AFJROTC larnin' someplace (I'm surprised I can still remember all of that stuff!)...

Someone told me a while back that aircraft these days derive airspeed readings from GPS signals, but I find that a bit hard to swallow. Maybe I'm just being old again, but I'd think that would be kind of unreliable in an atmospheric disturbance or something similar.

Hay anything is better the throwing a knotted rope out!

That is Donna's ship the Dogged Determination. She shortens it to dog most of the time.

Both she and Jace like nicknames that is why they call you fangs sometimes after your ship.

An idea: Jace's ship has wingwalking facilities, doesn't it? You may be able to imagine what I'm thinking...

Perhaps Meri's attack on Al's ship could lead to a rescue that suddenly involves a wingwalking duel or some such...

Could be.

at any rate, Meri will soon be getting a very disturbing message, and the Germans may well be losing an ally...

Trying not to draw out the miniarc of Meri's change of loyalties like I might have done with other miniarcs in previous RPs. Especially trying to not make the RP about Meri, so if it seems truncated or abrupt, that's what's going on.

I have a plan for the rest of the story do you all want to see were I want this to go or do you want it to be a surprise?

IMO a bit of a glimpse might help avoid conflict, but whatever the others want is fine, too.

You are right we will all be able to write better bits if we know where this is going. I think what is going to happen is we are going to drive off the germans only to have the ducks base get attacked late at night by a supernatural fighter force called the night witches. Each of the other pilots will get pealed off leaving jace and the doctor.  That is when the doctor will try and hold the station ransom and reveal that the real reason the secret scioty is after him is he has a collar that can control people.  He forces Jace to put it on in order to barter for his freedom.

Used "witch" as an insault here because I can't think of anything that isn't PG rated.
