Great pictures Adger, showing the graphics off in all their glory. That airfield looks like a deathtrap with all that ice and with the sun low down it looks positively freezing.

The pictures of balloons and people falling out of aircraft makes me think of the devs maybe combining the two and having people parachuting out of the Observation balloons when they're under attack. That would crank another notch on the realism scale.

"A great deal of an aeroplane could be holed without affecting its ability to fly. Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."
