Semarak Api -- n. origin. Malay 1. Lit. Flame-of-the-Forest. Tree with small flaming red flowers. 2. May the fire burn on. May the spirit live on...


A hearty "Gong Xi Fa Cai" goes to all who celebrates Chinese New Year, to the Muslims, "Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri". It's been rather quiet on the Firebirds front, so for this fortnight I'm afraid that you'll just have to make do with an Asian Airwing news and a lot of S:AaB news. :)

The "Bulletin Board" this issue was specially for the Gong Xi Raya celebration, so take a moment to read it. A classic Firebird fanfic piece is featured in this fortnight's newsletter, as well as a resurrected "Birds of a Feather....". Unfortunately, Peregrine is still isn't back, so "Musings" is still in limbo for the time being. However, I believe that Albatross' attempt to fill her shoes is very much commendable. And check out "Interstellar Chat Radio" for the transcript of a recent chat with Morgan and Wong.

Enjoy, and send feedback!

Captain Yasmin "Garuda" M.
88th Firebirds Squadron

The newsletter will be posted every fortnight (hopefully). For suggestions and contributions to both the newsletter and mailing list e-mail Garuda. I will forward any message intended for the whole squadron to the mailing list. If you want your message to be seen by the whole squadron, state it clearly and I will put it up on the Bulletin Board column as well. I am also responsible for Communications, so e-mail me if you have any other problems, except those concerning your membership in the 88th, as that falls under Peregrine's wing.
