No word yet on when the squadron is going to exchange the Fe2 for the Be2s. We are also supposed to be getting some additional scouting aircraft. We already have two, and Supply says a third is will be waiting for pick up at St. Omer very soon. While I would like to get a Scout, I still have trouble with just handling the BE. It looks like Ill be assigned to B flight. The Flight Commander tells me not to worry about my lack of experience in the air, because at the rate they are flying now, Ill have twenty hours by next week. That would double my flight time. I cant imagine flying that much!
Today we did an artillery spotting mission to support a French attack to the south. Very quiet. We took no fire, and saw no hostile aircraft. Im still having trouble keeping up with the Fee.
