Jim McConnell and my wingman both had engine troubles on the last sortie, Jim's went right after t/o and he made it back to the field. Casale, my "ailier", landed goodness knows where (probably some Caudron base), they set his engine right and he turned up at the field a few hours late. We thought he must be a goner, nothing but mountains and trees to land in but he did ok.
Might have seen an Aviatik overhead on the partoll but he was 2k above and heading the other way. Nobody seemed interested in investigating so I stayed w the formation. Fingers crossed my engine continues to behave itself.
Let's pretend I got the BWOC badge to embed here.
