Dovetail Games’ vision and mission statements are remarkably similar to The Flare Path’s. Replace company with column , hobbies with articles , and delight and retain customers with debag and retrain readers and they’re pretty much identical. Whether we see eye to eye on flight simulation matters remains to be seen. I was rather hoping that this week’s word slab would serve as a Rosetta Stone to the exciting but enigmatic press release issued by Dovetail on Wednesday.

First-time readers of Flare Path, before you go any further, be aware that the following may contain references to obscure 1920s RAF biplanes.

At some point in the text he’ll almost certainly use the phrase “almost certainly” and the words ‘tad’ and ‘Panzer’ (Or, if the column is looking a tad short, ‘Panzerkampfwagen’).
