Beautiful flying weather continues and the world feels set to burst into spring. We accompanied Jones and his observer on an arty spotting mission east of Ypres, an area we have seldom flown despite it being the closest point on the front to our airfield. As always, our two Bristol pilots (Captains Davis and Buckminster) swept the area ahead and no enemy machines were about.

We flew the same crew contingent as yesterday but had a new target; the Hun airfield at Phalenpin. It isn't far from Loos Junction so we know the way there, and did some damage based on what Chris could see as we turned for home. Another glorious day for flying and we had the skies to ourselves.
