And all this to finally disappear somewhere in the Atlantic with "L'oiseau Blanc" while attempting the first crossing...


His medical record is jawdropping (yeah, I know, sorry).
According to the aerodrome:

"Skull fracture, brain concussion, internal injuries (multiple), five fractures of the upper jaw, two fractures of lower jaw, piece of anti-aircraft shrapnel imbedded in right arm, dislocation of knees (left and right), re-dislocation of left knee, bullet wound in mouth, bullet wound in ear, atrophy of tendons in left leg, atrophy of muscles in calf, dislocated clavicle, dislocated wrist, dislocated right ankle, loss of teeth, contusions too numerous to mention."

Nothing to stop you joining in now as it isn't a competition. Just start your campaign at today's date in 1916!
For example, Olhams first pilot (with first name starting with 'A' died and now he is on his second pilot with first name starting with 'B'. Add your name in the survey under 'other' and away you go!

Well it is a competition to see who can stay alive. I am getting good at running away to fight another day. So far forced down once, ditched (somewhere at sea) and survived one mission with no opposition. But it won't last ...

I am going to create a pilot and join up within an hour.
I'm confused about what files must be submitted, where they are located, and how often I should submit these files

Join up on WOFF with a pilot for today's date in 1916 ie 11th June 1916. Make your flight and then report on the results here:

http://www.attrill.co.za/WOFFcampaign.htm

There are no files to submit - I do it all. But you do have to take note of your WOFF hours and victories so you can capture the correct info.

Put your id under "other" once you have submitted your data I will add you to the list with the others.

It's too bad Lothar_of_the_hill_people is no longer with us. I'm sure he would have this whole process automated so all you would have to do is register and fly your missions with all data automatically captured. He was an amazing developer in his own right.

I have not flown 2 seaters much before this campaign. The BE2c is pretty much a death trap but I have to admit, while giving it another go with my second pilot, I have come to enjoy the old bird. As for total immersion, does anyone else find themselves taking to the gunner/observer? Mine is very sharp eyed. I do not look behind me because when he moves that gun there is trouble afoot. After putting myself in his shoes and knowing his field of fire, my chances of survival are better. Also, has anyone else noticed there eyes move?

Thanks again for such a great sim OBD,(Olham, notice I did not call it a game!), and thanks to Olham and Jim for a very wonderful experience. Loads of fun! Now if I can get out of the hospital and back into the fray.

I think I'm doomed to fly this trap for a long time!)
I requested transfer to Nieuport 11 squad 3 missions ago and I'm still not approved. Meanwhile, another mission is coming in BE2 and you know what - I'm starting to like it)) It's like a cleansing fire after being a ruthless and daring fighter pilot in previous lives.

Anyway, I'll send more detailed report at the end of the day, June 11

Hi Mfair, I fly FE2b's as a gunner in DID so far. Strangely enough I previously flew a BE2 in Campaign in 1915 and nothing much happened. The DID campaign in June 1916 is tougher so I joined in RFC18 flying FE2bs. As a useless pilot I am relying on the AI pilot who seems to be better than I could be (mostly)

But I did have a problem in one sortie when I could not get back from the rearward-looking observer's seat so I could not fly the plane. I eventually 'ditched' in the sea somewhere! I do tend to have this thing where I cannot get back to the pilot's seat for some reason...

But overall the sim is wonderful and I do not call it a game. What ganm would have me flying along happily one minute and frightened to death the next?

OK Jim, Pilot is created in WOFF. I'll take him out in the Strutter and see what happens. He is in RNAS 4.

Wish me luck!

Oh, do I send in a report after every mission or weekly, or on certain days of the week?

Send in a report whenever you have done a sortie. That means I will get your data. That is the best way. I then send the results to Olham and then he puts them here. That's how it works biggrin

Albert Addleson has just gotten credit for his second kill and passed seven hours. The boys in RNAS-5 are an aggressive bunch; my flight leaders will divert from any mission to chase Eindeckers.

Every flight we get a beautiful view of the beaches at Dunkirk (and Ankor's cool wave effects!)


Then we rack up some flight hours droning towards the frontlines ...


Then my eagle-eyed companions often go chasing EIIIs. Can you spot the Eindecker in this photo? He's running east with four Strutters in hot pursuit.

Getting kills, are we?;)

I wish I started with the Strutter not BE2. I figure no kills are coming my way while I'm in this crate.
However, it really helps to savor the spirit of the DiD Campaign Revival.

Nice pics, 77_Scout. Btw, the Eindecker is quite spottable here

Damn, I am becoming a pen-pusher with all the records valuation!
A way to survive the war, perhaps...

The latest chart is to be seen in post #1
I will replace it there again, when I have new records ready (Sunday evening, I guess).

This is a pretty common problem that gets brought up every now and again. I got stuck once looking at the dashboard map position. Made flying interesting... To my knowledge, no one has ever locked down what causes it but it is definitely not unique to you...

I was about to say to you that you could take on another pilot with first name starting with 'B' but then I realised that that went against the rules of the Campaign. You can only do that if your first pilot is dead. Of course you could say that he was dead even if he wasn't in WOFF. But we are all flying gentlemen here in WOFF and do not tell any lies. As you capture your status on the web you can easily become the greatest pilot since sliced bread but that is not the point, is it?

I calculate your points etc exactly on what you capture and it is great to see where you are. There are of course no 'winners' in this campaign except those who stay alive. But it is nice to see the stats, no?
