A few years ago I set up an Avcom party. We used the AFOS hanger at Rand Airport. It was reasonably successful, and we had a lot of fun.
The biggest shock, in reality, was just that most people are reasonably mundane !
That some of the biggest personalities on Avcom are just normal humble folk in their meat form, always surprises me.
I know I will upset people with this comment - but bear me out: Andre Klepper (RV), an Avcom legend who could write intelligent and often beautiful prose, was surprisingly droll in person. It was always hard for me to reconcile the great personality at the keyboard with the pragmatic, straightforward guy he was in person. Cvh was another.
To be fair, the opposite is also true. Some of the quietest voices on Avcom represent industry giants or just larger than life personalities. Like me
