So today is the big day for Achille - Transfer to Verdun.

181 miles! mostly through enemy airspace. They topped off their petrol tanks and took off. Thankfully they did not encounter any enemies on the way. That would have been a disaster. They've reached their new aerodrome of Lemmes with only 5% of fuel left.

Every single one of the pilots had problems with landing, since the forest is so close to the field. They all took at least 3 attempts to land, but eventually they all were able to find the right spot for touch down without running into the forest at the end of the field. Tomorrow, after some rest, they will all get familiar with their new mounts, the N11's.

"Take the cylinder out of my kidneys,
The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
