I started a career in this unit. While scrolling through the months, and going into 1917, I noticed the planes have a Stork painted on the side. Shouldn't there be an Indian head?

Quite right Jake, starting in October of 1916 their scouts should be painted with the early Seminole Indian head emblem. By the way, welcome to the forums and the virtual WOFF skies, glad to have you with us. Also, and I can't stress this enough, new lads buy the drinks!

I've just gone into 1917 (Noop 17) with a 'Laf' pilot and I see the Seminole head, not the Stork.
Also in the Skins folder for Laf aircraft, the skins have either 1916 personal markings or into 1917 with the Seminole?

Shredward might know why you are seeing the Stork.?

JJJ65, I was wrong. I didn't have it installed, but another one. Downloaded and installed. Good to go. Thanks. Next beer is on me. 😉
