Promotion: Win Fighter Jet Trip With The Proxy

Watch series, follow clues, fly plane.

Pew pew! Pew pew!

Have you ever flown a plane? I've flown a plane. It was a little Cessna thing. Four-seater. Lots of fun. Here's a picture of me flying a plane. Thanks to my years of training in advanced flight sims (Jedi Starfighter and Starwing), I was a complete natural. Very impressive, right? Who wants to touch me?

New web series The Proxy obviously shares my passion for the skies, because they've set up a competition to win a fighter jet flying experience. The words "subject to medical approval" are involved, which just makes things even more amazing. The winner and three runners-up will also get an Alienware X51, but seriously: FLYING A PLANE. That's what it's all about.

If you're interested in that - or regular chances to win Alienware headsets, keyboards and mice - check out The Proxy, the new sci-fi web TV series starring Nathaniel Parker and Stuart "Ashens" from the world of YouTube. And if you do get to fly a plane in the end, remember to get some photos.
