Beanie - did you fly in different sectors with your active pilot?
If not, the hours must only be filled in for the zone, to which your airfield belongs.
It does not matter, where your actual sorties led you, okay?

Your nurse looks like the right stuff to make pilots ready for duties as quick as possible!
Mmuahahahahaaa!!!

CatKnight, damn, that looks horribel - rest in peace, Albert Nuts!

Yes, I Love flying bush planes in FSX, but never have to worry about being shot down by other planes.
Squirrelly Shirley needs Tundra tires!


Me too, I run an Air Hauler company in western Canada / Alaska. I fly a C185 Skywagon with tundra wheels among other planes.


I've thought about those type of addons quite a bit. I basically do it in my mind by overloading planes and making resort drop offs, adjusting the payload after landing. Don't have the C185, sure looks nice though. I do have Carenado's C337. Aerosoft's Beaver, Twotter and PBY... Flight Replica's cub package, and super cub...Real Air's ACA Scout packages are my favorites. Aside from the stock Goose and Maule Orion. Real Air's FW-190 and Spitfire are my speedsters.

Do you have any of the Orb-X addons? I've thought about them quite a bit. I'm using Tongass Fjords, some Aerosoft airports, UTX and GEX stuff, and several good freeware rural scenery addons.

DiD Campaign Chart for 30 June, 1916 / 2014

Gentlemen, we have to bemoan more losses among the DiD Campaign Pilots;
there will be more empty chairs in the messes.
Remember, everyone - this is no race to win, nor will points or medals make the fallen alive again.
Fly determined and with bravery, but also with good awareness and common sense.

DiD Campaign Medal Awards - 30 June 1916

The commander of No. 24 Squadron, RFC, Major Hawker, enters the mess, where the pilots are all assembled at the long table.
All pilot rise from their chairs, while the Major speaks to them.

"Gentlemen, we have amongst our ranks a young flyer, who received an awards for his recent achievements with our fine squadron.
I want to read to you this letter I received from High Command!"




"Let me be the first to congratulate you to this award, Sergeant Burroughs - you well deserved this!"


In a similar event as the above, the commander of No. 13 Squadron, RFC, reads the following letter to
Sergeant Algernon Didsworth at the airfield Savy. He congratulates him and hands to him the
British Military Medal with the King's letter.






Furthermore, the recipient RAF_Louvert has flown more than 25 hours now, for which he receives the

WOFF DiD Campaign Medal for 25 Hours

Spiffy medals LOU

Congrats to All who flew

Olham, really like the aircraft column. I couldn't remember who was flying what before it was created.

Guys, the "aircraft" column is a good idea indeed, me thinks!
It was introduced by Jim_Attrill; Jim's running the whole online-records business.
And I am SOOO glad he does - I don't know where I would have ended without his help.
Bailleul Asylum would be one possible address - and I don't mean the airfield... dizzy

Well done RAF_Louvert!

I'm still out of action for another week (7th July). Do you want me to submit a report with the new aircraft field on Jim_Atrill? Otherwise, 29 RFC fly early DH2s at the present time.

10 days is a long time to be out of action. My test pilot is seeing a lot of QC action.

Maeran, what I do is take the LATEST report that you submit. So if you want to submit a new report with the same no of hours and sorties as before but with the new aircraft data and squadron data then that is the one I will use. The report must have the total hours and sorties for the pilot as reported by WOFF. The difficulty comes if, like myself, you move squadrons and go to a different region with a different score per hour. You have to keep track of that yourself. In any case, the total hotspot + medium + quiet hours must equal the total hours.

You are not allowed to change your difficulty level (A, B or C) because it is then impossible to calculate your points. If your pilot dies you start from scratch and then can change that level. Well, we would have to ask the SWO about that!
Good luck for when you get out of dock!

Thanks Jim. I believe this part relates to me as I just sent you a PM to the fact.

Not that it matters much since he's passed on, but Albert Nuts' final hour total was 7.70, all hot, with 8 sorties and 1 victory

You can enter that Cat and then mark him as 'deceased' so you can go on the 'best dead pilot section' at the bottom of the chart.

Flight Sub-Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - Coudekerque - 30 June 1916

Mission this morning is reco over enemy ground troops east of Ypres. Flight is 6 Strutters, weather beautiful and clear.

We fly to our reco zone and as we near the front we spot 3 Sopwith Tripes of RNAS 1 on patrol above us... can be useful ! ( gives me an idea for a transfer, I love that plane )

As we make our second pass over the target zone at 9000 ft, 4 Eindeckers on patrol have spotted us and climb to intercept. My leader doesn't hesitate and dives on them ! I stay above the fight and go down from time to time to clear a friend's tail. 10 planes at the same spot make me fear for collisions, and this is what happens ! Hoffman's Strutter goes down in flames together with one of the Einies.

We go further down to a point where I start getting hits from ground fire, so I climb back again. The three remaining Fokkers are sent down by my team mates and we reform. The Tripes never saw anything and stayed up there. We return to Coudekerque without any other event.
