Sailor_Steve if these are in Quick Combat then you will never meet an enemy if you have set it to Freeflight too? Or is that the idea?

Yes, that's the idea. It's now February 1915 and though there have been shootdowns in real life they are still few and far between. Franz and Quenault scored the first ever shootdown on October 5th. A few more by the French followed. Richard Flashar and Demuth got the first German "kill" one month later, on November 5th. Louis Strange and Francis Small made the first British downing on November 22nd and Adolphe Pegoud and his observer Le Rendu scored their alleged 'hat-trick', shooting down a Taube and two Aviatiks one hundred and four years ago today, on February 5th, 1915. They all had guns mounted themselves and deliberately went hunting. For my poor pilots just flying patrols is excitement enough. I'm just now reaching the point where the Game Campaigns are kicking in, so it shouldn't be too long before they start seeing some real action.

Once again the weather closes in and the region is rained out.


1 February 1915

Flanders is still pouring rain. Verdun is still fogged in.


2 February 1915

Nothing has changed. Everything is still grounded.

Most of the Front is still washed out.

In Wilhelmshaven a new pilot begins his career. Alongside the Zeppelin sheds where he has been training the last several weeks, Leutnant Lennart Jarman Altendorf makes his first solo flight.

The whole world is shut down due to weather...or at least the parts my pilots are all flying in.


6 February 1915

The storm is massive. Everything everywhere is still shut down.

Varying stages of fog and rain are still around, but everything is light enough today that everybody got a good flight in.

Flanders is rained out again, but surprisingly Verdun has its second day in a row of no fog!

The front is yet again unflyable. Everybody waits and wonders what will happen next.

The Front is still closed down, but at Wilhelmshaven the sky is clear enough for the fledglings to fly.
Lennart Altendorf writes: "1445: Flew southeast to Varel, then south to Oldenburg, east to Bremen, then back to Sande and home. Arrived just after night. Got some practice landing in the dark. 2 hours 9 minutes."

The Front is still rained out, but the rearward training school at Wilhelmshaven is flying again.
Lennart Altendorf writes: "0809: Long flight up to Minsener Oog, then down to Witmund, southwest to Aurich, south to Westoverledingen, then north-northwest back to Sande. Once the weather is clear in Flanders we will be moving to our new field at Bertincourt. 2 hours 18 minutes.
