Mission No. 3 for Ltn. Bouffant now flown, with full report written up...thought I'd post a few more screenies of the latest happenings. Greatly (terrible) weather with the BB ver. 3.0 clouds - also getting good results even in mid-1917 with mission diameter/frequency set to "light" in the in-sim menu, and frequency of contact with enemy set to "medium." Only other changes are an increase of ground fire to 850 m alt, in JJJ's multi-mod (have been running it that way for the last couple of missions) - and rear-gunner accuracy is at a value of "5" instead of 4.5 previously (seems to give good variety that way but is still deadly on occasion).
Happy flying all, and Happy Canada Day to fellow fliers celebrating north of the border, as well as a Happy 4th of July to fliers celebrating soon south of the border,
Enemy flight with our small trio of Nieups. in the background
View from the Nieup. office looks particularly scary, we did several wide turns around the Albs. since they were also trying to get behind us, but eventually cut across them
Alb. rocket conversion
So many 'crates near Belfon today, likely Flight A had returned before us
Bouyer returned late but bagged a two-seater above the 'drome, "splendid" (the two-seater had no chance to drop anything and is off to self-detonate); there was another two-seater too, bagged by De Belleville in a Spad 180 hp this time
Belleville's mount was holed somewhat by its opposing two-seater, with engine conked out eventually
Note to self, do not turn back in a Spad with dead engine (Belleville survived miraculously, most likely forgot to harness himself in and was saved by the pine trees, well-flayed but nonetheless saved)
Time for some rest, sun, and those reclining patio chairs do look inviting, perhaps a spot of lemonade or absinthe to calm the nerves, mais oui?
