Had a couple of odd things happen recently. I had 9 A-20s arrive at Sydney as replacements for the 89th BS, which is at PM. As typical, it arrived without pilots and since the parent unit had 7 a/c and 9 pilots I clicked on the add pilots button several times but nothing happened, so I did a rail transfer to Cairnes. On the next turn I clicked on the add pilots button a couple of more times but still no pilots were added so I transfered the 9 a/c to PM and low and behold my pilot count instantly jumped from 9 to 22! So far this has only happened with this one particular unit and I've had no other problems, before or since, adding pilots to replacement sub-units.
On the same turn I had the SBD equipped VMSB-241 arrive at Seattle with pilots, but no aircraft, even though I have more than 200 in the pool. It wasn't until two turns later the unit finally had aircraft, but they were all damaged so I transfered it to LA and five turns later only 5 a/c are operational. This, to me, seems kinda slow, since there is over 200 aviation support troops, 6 digit supply pts and only 2 other air units at LA so numbers don't seem to be the problem. Never had this happen with any other new arrival units before or since this happened.
