Players can have innumerable pilots - Mfair is up to his C pilot now.

That's the reason why there will be only one fallen pilot per player -
just to show the best one of each flyer.

But shouldn't we keep a memorial of all those fallen flyers? I am certain their relatives would like that

I think each player can do it himself, that's what I do.
I have all my pilots records of the last 10 years on Excel sheets and screenies of their dossiers in folders per squadron ( OFF, ROF and IL2 ) I can tell you it's a lot of people in there ! smile2

Flight Sub-Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - 23 June 1916

Today is morning mission : Reco over ground units west of Ypres.

Same story as yesterday, my two flight mates go "gung-ho" after some Eindeckers. I do the job of taking pictures above the enemy ground units.

As I turn around west, I see under me my leader with a Fokker in his six. I go down behind the hun who is focused on his prey. I let him have it and watch him go down to the ground.

I land back at Coudekerque to bring back the pictures, my leader Flight Lt Boyd lands at Bailleul. Unfortunately the other wingman Nathan Ada and his observer will never come back.

I open my victory counter ! Afternoon missions cancelled due to lack of flyable planes.

Today was a nice day, none of my friends got killed today.

I did get followed home by an Eindecker, which was his mistake. I got the DSO, which of course I shouldn't have because I'm a sergeant.

6 victories. 2 of which I consider to be my observer's. 2 were balloons (one of which would have actually been equally divided by 4, since the entire flight was shooting at it), so only 2 kills that I would consider to be what you think of when you say 'victory'.

Good work there Maeran! You'll have passed me handily now in the points tally and at this rate will soon be giving RAF_Louvert a run for his money. Well done.

Congrats for your first victory, Corsaire; and for your 6 victories and the DSO, Maeran!
You know we have our own, more strikt rules for awards, but still you are an ace now!

No ArisFuser, 2 kills. Which of course my observer got while I was trying to avoid being shot. The EIII is easier to shoot down from the front, it's engine is vulnerable it seems.

The other 4 are in DH2s and two of them are balloons.

Great job everyone!

I can see how keeping track of everyone's pilots could get overwhelming Olham. I appreciate what you're doing now (you too Jim) and if you just show our best pilot in the demise section, I'm good with that.

They will have to Shiloh. I think I might fill up a whole chart by myself! Maeran and Corsaire, congratulations on your accomplishments!

Well, there's 17 pilots total and 26 letters in the alphabet, so we can have 26 pilots to get from now to the end of the war. I we all used up our pilots Olham would have to make a death chart with 442 pilots on it. eek2

Might not have worded that right Shiloh, I was agreeing with your idea of just showing the best of the dead. Yep, that would be a whole lot of pilots! cheers

Olham, the survey that Jim put together asks about awards. Do we check off awards that WOFF awarded a pilot, or awards that DiD awarded a pilot?

24 Squadron at Bertangles West is also sitting it out today due to rain. I can appreciate this in RL as well since we had monsoon rains here in central Minnesota last week and the week before. My basement flooded last Thursday evening due to the sump pump conking out. By the time I got it replaced, (in 45 minutes from the point of it failing BTW), I had two feet of water in my basement. Furnace and water heater are both ruined but I was lucky as there is nothing else down there and the walls are bare stone. Lots of folks around here have nicely finished basements, (my neighbor across the road for example), many of which are now under water.

More rain on the way tonight... oh goodie. It likely goes without saying but the aforementioned flooding, (along with my crazy busy work schedule), have kept me from enjoying everyone's company here for the last number of days. My only break has been in the wee hours of the morning when I slip away to my flying computer and get in the DID Campaign missions for Sgt. Burroughs.

Fly smart all!
