We suffered another incalculable loss to the IL-2 community last year. Barry Wells aka Bearcat or Bearcat99, creator of the Nuggets Guide to getting off the Ground and Sturmovik Essentials guides and so much more, passed away on August 23, 2020.
For anyone who knew Barry I humbly ask that you not only post your thoughts here at Mudspike in this thread but also if you do have a Great Battles forum account to take the time to post something at the Sturmovik forums where Bearcat had spent the better part of the last 9 years.

Text from his obituary.
Bearcat has been a fixture in the IL-2 community since well before I came around and learning of his passing last week has affected me as deeply as losing a close family member.
