Robert.. I concur with your assessment of Guiness here at home, tastes horrible...like you I managed to sample that nectre at the Guiness Brewery in Dublin a few years ago, and it was simply delicious!! Adjer I will hoist a few Guiness pints with you and a chaser of Jacks or 18 yr old Gibson’s finest Rye whiskey!! Maybe perhaps a nice Cohiba cigar to accompany said beverages. Thank you for the welcome cptroyce!!

Draught Guinness in Canada has come a long way since the bitter bottled export stuff back in the 60s, but you still can't touch the real thing. I once tried a draught Guinness in Portugal -- MANY years ago. It must have been sitting in the tank for a decade before I ordered it, because starting about an hour or two later. I was sick as a dog and able to poop through the eye of a needle at forty paces!!!

Lol...yes I do agree that the Guiness has improved here at home to where it was before. I can at least make the comparison from the nectre I had in Dublin and the brew here at home. I feel for you consuming the toxic brew you ingested in Portugal which made you paint porcelain from the backside From fourty paces!! I’ll heed your plight and just stick to something local when I head to Spain and Portugal this fall.

Hey Gents.
I’ve survived the first 10 days of bloody April 1917 with my Pup pilot from 66 Sqd. This has included: 3 balloon attacks, 3 attacks on airfields at Erchin, La Petrie, & Riencourt some escort work and sally’s into enemy territory which caused frayed nerves and a damaged Pup. I’ve been shot up 6 times, had 2 engine failures just prior to reaching German lines & have been credited with 2 Rolands, a Halberstadt, and 2 Albatros DII’s bringing my total to 8. Action, when it occurs is fast and furious! I must admit I dread the airfield attacks the most! Members of my flight have survived our sorties and we swill ale, whiskey and enjoy raucous banter during evenings in the mess! If I survive I will request some leave in England! Maybe the weather will be foul tomorrow so I can catch up on some much needed rest....and a hangover! I will continue to persevere!

Hello Gents!! Thank you for the welcome!! I’m usually more present in the forum but recently sold our home and now in the process of selling things we cannot bring with us, donating a lot to charity, placing stuff in storage and prepping for our move 1 May to a temporary res until our new home is finished in August. Between my post retirement part time job 3 days/ week I snatch amission or 2 after dinner. I have reached 17 April17 and came back alone from a balloon busting mission as my flight was bounced by 5 Albatros scouts. My poor Pup was riddled but the engine was working fine. I damaged 2 of the Albatros scouts, 1 trailing smoke as they headed east and I west with the controls of my Pup very much damaged. I managed to set her down, ammunition almost done, physically drained and very thirsty. Debriefing showed the whole flight of 4 survived, with a confirmed kill to our flight leader. 2 of my flight dustained injuries and have been hospitalized for 7 days. New pilots will fill the gaps for our next sortie.
Dark Canuck I will post my experiences innthe Reports from the front thread and join in on the DID centennary!
Cheers all! I am having a total blast with this amazing Sim!! Thank younfor the welcoming and words of encouragement!

Hey Nightflyerx, thank you for The hearty welcome and congratulations on your success for nicely dispatching a Roland and a Halberstadt! Well done my friend. I seem to be flying with many a horse shoe and 4 leaf clover as in my last 2+ missions I have come out on the wrong end of twin Spandau’s! My trusty Pup has brought me home shot full of holes and rudder cables nearly unusable! I think my luck is starting to desert me, mainly due to my aggressive and foolhardiness of chasing my enemy back low and over their lines. I should know better, as I have been archied, mg’d from enemy troops and jumped by e/a returning from home patrol. I think I have used almost all of my 9 cats lives. April 1917 is just over half done and I begin the 18th of April with an airfield attack! I raise a glass to you in your continued success against the enemy and look forward to hearing from you and your exploits from 54 squadron! Cheers to you sir, and to 54 from 66 Sqdn!!

Wow, just around the corner! I work in Moncton and live on the Richibucto River near Rexton, so pass by Shediac often. Is your pilot a LeBlanc or a Cormier? Most folks in Shediac are one or the other...

Hey Raine! Just made it back into the forum after a weeks R&R in PV Mexico which was greatly needed! Great weather and many Cervasas were had. Just 90% completed moving our stuff to storage and ready to put the final boxes as well into storage this weekend plus give our now former home a good cleaning for the new people who purchased it, then its off to a temporary stay at my relatives home until our new condo is ready 1 August. My pilot would be of the LeBlanc relations side of the family tree. He’s still alive and kicking as of the 19 April 1917 with 10 confirmed e/a destroyed. I will be taking a 3 mont hiatus from action until 1 August. I’ll be checking in with the forum from time to time keeping current with all the extraordinary league of gentlemen I am proud to be affiliated with here in the “HQ”. Cheers for now! Deej

Deej,

Hope your move has gone smoothly. Best of luck getting settled. I get up to Ottawa periodically. I'd love to connect for a beer or three and talk all things WOFF one day.

I love the immersion,the ai,the graphics are unbelievable and I spend much time reading up on aces,aircraft etc or watching WW1 documentary's and such while I fly lol. Woff definitely keeps me coming back for more. Good hunting to you! and fly safe!
