Jackson Valley Regional Airport, near Jackson Valley City, altitude 50 may be just a regional field in between some class A airports, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a popular place for pilots to gather.

“It really has charm,” said one pilot unpacking a case of Pernod from her YKS-7 at the field (link to pictured product). “I know one guy, Manu, who brought his Camper (link to product in pic) here twenty years ago and never left!”

Jackson Valley Regional Airport can be found at (link to map), and pilots should be aware that the airfield can only accommodate small to medium craft on Runway 30/12, Alt. 50.

Sailors on the Blake Sea have been seeing this ship – the WWS Waterbank – more and more, and are nervous about it.

“It didn’t help that Old Man Half Hitch told me it was a ghost ship,” said one sailor we talked to at Hollywood Airport. “It really has me freaking out.”

“It came out of the mist and nearly hit us,” said another boater. “When I yelled at it no one came out. It just kept on going, without a person in sight.”

A number of coast guards have asked that boaters call in the location of the ship, which they believe might have had some mishap. “We’re not saying ‘deadly disease that could decimate the world,'” said one SLCG rep, “and we are definitely not saying ‘vengeful ghost ship that can’t be stopped with modern science.'”

Old Man Half Hitch had this to say: “I tol’ y’er.”

An experienced pilot that has turned the shipping business on its head, Cam Maximus is a rising leader in the business community, with a logistics company spread around the world. TNT is at 15 locations, many of them key transit hubs. Waterbank News asked a few questions of the magnate, and he took time out from his morning brief for pilots that day to answer them.

The expansive destination of Antiquity is a late 18th century world that has been only partly civilized. There are royal courts and scenic parks, yet travelers looking to take part in royal intrigues or skirmishes on the sea still have to brave bandits and suspicious locals. There is something for everyone, all with SPD combat (optional) and a money HUD.

Travelers seeking to role play in this exciting destination may want to bring their own vessel for excitement on the seas (Furia – Blackstone Rose Shipyards link), or take a horse to speed along land journeys (Waterhorse link)

First time visitors are encouraged to acquaint themselves with the greeting room first, then can take a guided tour (which you can hop off when you like) to see this brave new world.

One of many ports and airfields in the Greater Tulagi Region

Adventure travelers will be happy to know that there are plenty of themed sites for combat (VICE), and that some of them are large enough to allow for complicated play.

First on the list is 1940s themed Tulagi region. We’ve spend a bit of time on the large area, so if WWII aerial or naval combat is your thing, check out our other posts (link) or start at Archerfield Field (link) or the hub, Tulagi (link).

No 2 is the Binh Dinh sim chain, a five sim themed combat region for the Indochina Region (1968 to 1973). It is RP and VICE combat, and Binh Dinh (link) deliberately immersive. That means that if you just want to shoot things you’ll want a different site. There is a well written notecard quoted after the jump.

Number 3 on our list is Wonson, a North Korean VICE combat region including Serena Coco Bay (link). According to the owners, “Wonsan is a port city in Kangwŏn Province, North Korea, along the eastern side of the Korean Peninsula, on the East Sea and the provincial capital. The port was opened by occupying Japanese forces in 1880. VICE combat, sea, air, and urban warfare.”

Number 4 on the list is SSOC (Windhill City), which is technically an ECS combat location, though VICE has been used in the modern urban environment. We’ve spent some time on this location too (link).
