George Lyons Sergeant 3 RFC Chocques, Flanders May 1915
Thirtieth mission Wednesday 5 May PM...a recce mission over Haubourdin and Phalempin. Weather poor, with thunder and lightning (Note: using Panama Red's lightning mod)!
As bad as the weather was, I believe I understand why we were sent. Both aerodromes had what appeared to be new kinds of monoplanes in front of their hangars. A biplane of some sort was also landing at Phalempin, but that was second fiddle.
Indeed, the archie was rather fierce, even up at 65oo feet where we were at, and in a rainstorm nonetheless.
