--------------------------------------- * Introducing * --------------------------------------- Welcome for the second time to the group introduction chapter of Domination. Each issue a group is required to give scene related informations about it's members, group history and future ambitions of the group. This time i warmly present a long lasting, mainly illegal group which originated in the father land of Germany. * ALPHAFLIGHT 1970 * Special thanks to my friends Xenox/Afl and Marc/Afl for their assistance in the informations of this chapter. Enjoy.. General Editor Member informative of Alphaflight. Ancient Mariner: I'm sure that everyone calling the states knows him as the nice and friendly sysop of 'The Evil Island' Afl Whq. He's only as sysop in the Afl crew. (USA) Blaze: Part of the Polish division, being a swapper he spreads the Afl releases to the ever growing eastern community. (Pol) Calypso: Many people know him as the leader from his own group 'Amnesia', after a time he joined Afl to help with intros, graphics and he's fixing some pal/ntsc games for us. He joined as Amnesia got lazy one year ago. (Holland) Chotaire: Board caller and a musician, Marc also serves with his bbs 'The Pirate Island' which is offline at present. He stopped activities for 'Pandora' because of lazyness. (Ger) Ignorance: Thomas left 'Onslaught' some time ago and since then he's the Afl main cracker. He's also doing most ntsc/pal fixes in our group and is still calling the boards, one of the better crackers in todays scene. (Ger) Marc: The Alphaflight leader and still the main game supplier and co-sysop of every Alphaflight bbs. At the moment he has given over leadership to 'Styx'. (Ger) Max: Good old Max, he is busy with non-scene related things at current. But i'm sure that we can see him very soon on the boards again. He's also doing some cracks on the occasion! (Ger) Mercenary: Mercenary is our latest member. He will do some ntsc fixes for Afl in the latest releases. Also being former member of reknown American fixer group 'Empire'. (Canada) Pol Pot: Some people did not know him, no wonder! Not everyone is calling the boards in the states. So, Pol Pot is the sysop from our other US-Whq 'Holiday Inn Cambodia'. Which had many problems a few months ago but it's now back online with the old C-Base V3.0. (Usa) Ream: Being former member of 'Hotline' member and he's doing cracking, ntsc/pal fixing and intro coding. (Holland) Shuze: The one and only member from England. Being an original supplier, cracker and some occasional intro coding and now also modem trading. (England) Skinhead: Jochen, was the main cracker before he got lazy, at the moment he's doing his 'civil job' in Germany after he quitted the army. He is ofcourse a cracker and ntsc/pal fixer and the day will come when we can see him on the boards again. (Ger) Spider: Along side Blaze he serves as the mail trader in Poland. Only just recently joining in as a megaswapper. (Pol) Styx: Jurgen is at the moment the leader of Afl, he is still mail trading and supplies originals also. (Holland) Xenox: After he left 'Excess' and changed his handle from 'Iron' to 'Xenox' he is the main intro programmer. Also a able graphician and sysop of the European Hq 'Escapade'. (Ger) Zapotek: Having left from 'Rebels' and a short stay in 'Atlantis' he joined as a mega trader and paper artist. (Ger) Story: Alphaflight was formed quite a number of years ago and has branches on other formats such as Amiga and Ibm. One would see the large amount of board and mail crack releases and see them solely as a cracking crew. But infact, Afl have been known for several legal productions from their musicians and former coders who made several one file demos. Being internationally based and quite active its likely this group will not die too soon. The Alphaflight boards to call: Name: The Evil Island Ph: XXXXXXXXXXXX (Afl WHQ) Sysop: Ancient Mariner Location: Usa Name: Holiday Inn Cambodia Ph: XXXXXXXXXXXX (Afl Us HQ) Sysop: Pol Pot Location: California/Usa Name: Escapade Ph: XXXXXXXXXXXX (Afl Euro HQ) Sysop: Xenox Location: Germany Overall: The active pace Afl gives the scene sets them in the top 5 crack groups and also being a proud original group that manages to keep fighting through the years to survive to present day. Apart from being largely involved in the ever growing 'Relax' magazine, other expansions in the ntsc fixing market have helped Alphaflight release on a consistant basis.
