20 Dec 1916 Training at Farnborough


Today I had my last bombing run test. I aced it, although I very nearly voided my effort, when landing back at Farnborough, I came in a little too right on the runway and narrowly missed a parked Fee as I passed by. A little luck or an angel on my shoulder, and I was fortunate that it went unnoticed.

I parked the single seat strutter and headed over to the hangars to pick up a Nieuport 17 for my first training flight in a proper scout. Today begins my combat training and if all goes well, I will earn my pilots wings.

I hear they are likely sending us to 60 Sqn to fly N17’s. Seems they are forming up the squadron to full strength. That’s good to hear as I will lkely soon be back in France if I do well here.
