Mission No. 2 for Ltn. Bouffant now flown - also I took a look at JJJ's wonderful Pilot Log Ed. in the meantime and was surprised to see (as on the pic. included below) - that Bouffant downed Blue Max ace Heinrich Gondermann/Gontermann on the 2nd of July - probably best known for meeting his demise (the real Gontermann) in Oct. of '17 while testing a Dr.1 (top wing fell off in maneuvers). I don't think I've ever seen a flight sim. that so closely interweaves history with the "open" possibilities of the sim world itself. The other fellow, from Jasta 35, who was sent down, is the semi-obscure Franz Anslinger, supposedly of three-victory fame. According to TheAerodrome, Anslinger brought down a Spad and Nieup in May of '17, then a Caudron (unconfirmed) in August. Gontermann on the other hand came back from leave before engaging in some balloon-busting in late June/mid July of '17. Sometimes there's nothing more yarn-friendly than history itself - nice work OBD - there's a really (strange/special) interplay between historical timelines and what we can do in this sim. with our flying "heroes." A few other screenies from Mission No. 2 included below as well - Xjouve's water patch really comes in handy for immersion in the Alsace region.

Happy flying all,

Thank you JJJ for allowing swapping in/out of plane types in the Mission Ed., before flight (back to patrolling in N23s for the 2nd mission)
