The Shergood HUD and Sansara Airlines at ERIA
Today in aviation, the WAA has demanded that all Waterbank aircraft use the Shergood Aviation transponder and GPS (link), a way for pilots to see where they are, where others are (fewer crashes!), and plan their flights. The WAA has said that they will no longer use their “pin and paper” method of tracking flights and have entirely switched to the Shergood Radar System (link).
“We love – I mean really love – I mean love love love it,” said the WAA Director.
In East River, Sansara Airlines won a prize for “excellent piloting and safety,” making the airline one of only three ever awarded that prize. Waterbank Airlines remains the only airline who had to return the prize after a fiery crash at an East River gas station.
“There still are very gas stations in East River,” said the award committee.
A smuggler confessed that he too used the Shergood GPS after Waterbank Police arrested him on Munck Field trying to take off with a ton of sand. “He said that the Shergood HUD was great for night flights,” reported a WPD spokesperson.
Police in the Greater Tulagi Area arrested an overexcited ZSK customer who had chained himself to the showroom model of the new jet, demanding its immediate release.
“He was an absolute nutter,” said the arresting officer.
The customer was then driven down the road, where officers decided to break for lunch.
“It was a perfect time for a break,” said the officer, “so we even bought the guy a burger. He took one look at it and started running for Archerfield, screaming “let me buy it, let me buy it. Then he ran smack into the doorframe and – bam – out like a light. I almost feel sorry for the guy.”
The police then ate all the man’s fries.
“I said I felt ‘almost’ sorry for him, right?”
A Claw bombing run meant to deliver butter to an undisclosed location in Tulagi ended with crumpets in the Linden Chalet.
“The mice pointed out that we might as well make the best of it,” said one of the crew.
In the first of several planned reports on the Greater Tulagi Region, the Waterbank News has created a map to show anomaly travelers and WW2 era combat participants the growing complexity of the theater.
By clicking on the thumbnailed map you will see the entire contested area, along with the major players in the theater.
What surprised our staffers most was that most of the airports in the theater were neutral, allowing for active combatants to launch from them at the same time commercial GTFO flights could. In fact, nearly anyone can use the airfields, provided they follow local rules and guidelines. While at Archerfield Field (lower middle on the map), we saw a Claw P-40 take off, and a CP P-40 take off only minutes later, undoubtedly chasing it.
“Unless it is a combat airfield like Xilted, air fields are places where the war stops,” said one airport administrator. “What happens once you’re in the Tulagi Sea is wholly different matter.”
The Tulagi region may also be the first to allow smugglers to use the GTFO protocols, taking advantage of the existing combat conditions.
The WBA has pledged that they will match Lindens for kilometers travelled by their staff to a worthy charity. The charitable matching will commence after the release of the new ZSK jet, a highly anticipated luxury craft that is likely to be released soon.
“We believe strongly in giving back,” said WBA President Sketch Sun.
“That’s the big difference,” explained the Editor in Chief of the Waterbank News. “We never give anything back.”
Though the Greater Tulagi Area has no covenant requiring adherence to the 1940s, much of the Tulagi Sea and many of the adjoining properties are fully committed to the WWII theme.

A picture and a story of an unusual delivery for the Archerfield Free Post came to us today. Apparently they received an order to deliver 1000 Golden Retriever puppies to a veteran’s hospital in the Tulagi region.
“It was the hardest freight I ever had to deliver,” cried Smuggler X, “they were so f’in cute!”
