I have searched through the manual, and online here, but cannot find an answer to my question.

If a players' air force flies so many miles on their turn, when does that go back to zero? I presume the players next turn.

1) Thus, does one need to make sure that there are sufficient fighters/bombers available, with % of potential air miles remaining, so those planes are available to the computer for support operations, interception, interdiction, during my opponents' turn?

2) If that is so, does that mean that if I do not fly any missions on my turn, that there would be more planes available and thus more sorties in interception, interdiction, defensive support during my opponents turn (versus having all my squadrons at 80% at the end of my turn)?

3) Final question, if one transfers planes in from the NR, they are at 100% Airmiles used up. I presume they do not fly any defensive missions during my opponents turn then?

No - airgroups on 100% miles flown at the end of your turn will fly in your opponents turn. However fuel/ammo on the base and fatigue are likely to be limiting factors.

Do not worry about miles flown - fatigue and supplies on the base are the limiting factor.

Ditto.

Airgroups called out of national reserve in your turn will be on 100% miles - but will then fly in your opponents turn. Indeed they will presumably be very fresh and you will have chosen bases with supplies. So they will be very good for the opponents turn. Indeed the way I play they are the key airgroups you want to have available for the opponents turn. So having a lot of airgroups rotating through reserves not only boosts their morale, it also means you have many airgroups for callup before your opponents turn to place them exactly where you want them.

With mayors like that one you need a sense of humour!

Don't laugh that loud, if you are a Citizen of the USA!

For the sins of Toronto, the good lord gave us Rob Ford.

I can only imagine how bad the Sins of the USA are; since the Good Lord gave the USA "DONALD TRUMP"!!!

(Ford's Brother just said he wants to be leader of the Provincial Conservatives, thus we may get another one as Premier; (eqivalent to a Governor in the USA) I hear Brittany Spears singing in the back ground; "oops...I did it again"!

At least Toronto can be famous for something now?

Hmm... My mom's family are up in Dunstible/Luton; her family were an old Hugonaut family. My Dad was there in the RCAF; he did tell me though, that the cities in Germany were much prettier,.....especially when they were all lit up at night. (He was in Bomber command!)
