"With pleasure I start Condor again after some time for a little flight in the Alps. It is a series of flight plans which takes us all around the Alps XL scenery. I am at flight plan n 3, taking us from the end of austrian Alps to the south side of the lake of Konstanz, before crossing it to Wangen im Allgu (where I worked a few months) and ending on the airfield of Friedrichshafen on the north side of the lake (where the famous Zeppelins were made)"

"Our ground troops have quickly advanced and taken Mstyslavl et Belyi, it is now necessary for us to follow the front progress and we are transfered from Vitebsk-Ostrovno to Rudnya in the southeast. At 16:30 o'clock, the weather is clear with a few clouds at 1200m, and we take off behind our "Tante Ju" who carry our ground crews and parts. I am n2 of the first Kette behind Obstlt Kollein."

"After delivery of the snowmobile parts to the customer on Stewart airfield, I go for a well deserved lunch at the airfield bar and restaurant. As I reach the after lunch coffee, an agent I know quite well asks me if I could take an urgent load of newspapers and magazines on my way back to Prince Rupert. You cannot refuse an almost 5300$ proposal when you thought you would fly back empty. The plane is loaded and refueled a bit and at 14:15 I call the tower to ask for a take off clearance. Weather is calm and clear, so we will return by the same VFR flight along the fjord."

"I decided to experiment parallel campaigns between Rise of Flight (PWCG) and Wings Over Flanders Fields. I am enlisted in Jasta 4 on Bonneuil airfield in March 1916, flying a Fokker EIII "Eindecker". Weather is beautiful on this afternoon.
My first mission is to fly with Obltn Berndt Werdin for a frontline patrol at 2000m, with orders to try and intercept british two seaters who often cross the front since a few days."

After ten days without flying because of a fully booked agenda, it is back to business with Rise of Flight and Pat Wilson's Campaign Generator ( which was recently upgraded to version 15.9 with now infantry movements on the front )
On this beginning of afternoon, we are tasked with a front patrol along enemy lines at 2000m ( the cloud ceiling is at 2500m with scattered cumulus ). I am wingman for Lt Franz Vogel and we are accompanied by Feldwebel Paul Grunberg.

The early day mission is a railyard bombing, at the rail junction near Loos. It is shortly before 6:00 am, the cloud ceiling is around 8000 ft, and a gentle 8 knots breeze blows from the west. Our three BE2C are loaded with 4 25lbs Cooper bombs, which our observer will have to drop on the target.

While my breton company has been able to hire a pilot who is operating the Grand Caravan for me in France, I use my personal flying time for my canadian company which is only missing a couple of jobs to be able to hire another pilot.

"First encounter with the Nieuport 11

It is 8:15 on the 14th of March 1916. Weather is clear with a few high clouds, and a good wind blows from the north east, right in the direction we need for take off. I have been designated with Fw Werfel for a patrol mission on the front lines with Kmdr Cronfeldt leading. The main goal of this mission is to prevent enemy recce two seaters to guide artillery or take photos."

"This morning I am sent with Lt Theodor Glockenton to intercept a pair of FE2bs which have been reported crossing the front by one of our observation Drachen. It is 9:00, the sky is rather clear with a few scattered clouds around 1800m. A strong wind blows from the south west, which makes us take off with a tailwind."
