Ok Olham, I will send you the latest chart at midday tomorrow. For others, that is 12am Berlin and Johannesburg time. It is 1am Los Angeles time (I think). Anyway, all you guys can work it out! If in doubt, capture your latest sorties ASAP!

It seems that soon we will have 20 Campaign pilots which is a goodly number thumbsup

Yes, and maybe I should make an extra post over the weekend, to invite some more flyers?
Thanks, Jim - that will allow another sortie for me.
Maybe I can at least complete my first 10 hours...

Hi mates,


would like to join in, but without the "Fokkerscourge" addon, it looks like not beeing able to get to the appropriate start date.

Ideas?

You don't need the Fokker Scourge to fly in summer 1916.

No, not a problem. Just follow the rules as on page one of this thread. You don't need the addon. You need to set the start date as
manual in the 'workshops' and set all the other settings as required depending on whether you want to fly as an A, B or C type. Your start date would be today's date but in 1916. Once you have flown a sortie you can capture the results in the URL below, putting your name in the 'other' field. Once I see you as a Campaign pilot I will add you to the list.

Just follow the rules as set down by Olham in page one of this. It doesn't matter that you start after most of the others. Have a go!

Welcome to our fine little group of gentlemen, LtCasey!
Well, the others have explained it all, so it is only left for me
to wish you a good start, and the best o'luck!

Come back, when you have questions.

Hi LtCasey, welcome to us, and as Hasse said you don't need Fokker Scourge, which in reality allow you to fly german planes during 1915 year ...

Yes, we need a few more German pilots! Maybe I will have a go there one of these days!

On thinking about it, today's date is 16th July 2014 which is equal to 16th July 1916 WOFF time.

So this Campaign will carry on until 11th November 2016 which will be equal to 11th November 1918 WOFF time.

And the wonderful thing will be that the available aircraft will change with time so we will eventually end up with SE5A's against Fokker DVII's. Actually I can't wait for the Bristol Fighter F2B biggrin

Damn, we are so short of planes, that we were sent out with only two Rolands.
Of course we got jumped by Nieuports.
And of course I got wounded AGAIN, although my observer behind me was happily
firing away (without hitting anything), and the Nieuport was behind him.
So - how could the feller hit me???
But well, he did, and I am hospitalised for another 5 days.

Olham;

Your observer must be wearing one of those early forms of bullet proof vests! Maybe you should ask him where he got his! biggrin

Olham, perhaps your observer was not recovering from your 5th victory celebration ... We also heard in our squadron, that some german observers also have the habit to drink some schnaps before each mission to give them more courage ... Perhaps yours drink a little bit too much ... In any case I hope that you will recover soon from your injuries ... dizzy

Flight Sub-Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - Coudekerque - July 16, 1916 (Mission 19)

Today I draw the afternoon mission, I am tail-end charlie again in a flight of four Strutters led by Flight Cdr Channing. We take the opportunity of a wonderful weather to go drop some bombs on Houplin airfield.

We get there, drop our bombs from 11.000 ft (no hit for me but my mates did some damage) and I turn around asap while the flight makes a long turn to reform.

As I cross the front lines I meet a couple of Aviatiks returning from mission, escorted by two Fokkers. I try to go unnoticed, but one of the Fokkers has seen me and leaves the formation to come my way. Since he is a little higher I cannot run away very long, so I turn around to meet him. We draw a few descending circles down to 7000 ft and I manage to get behind him, not close enough to my taste. I decide to risk a short burst (stats will show I hit him with one bullet) and I probably scared him because he looses control, goes into a flat spin from which he will never recover until he hits the ground. First time I get a victory with one hit !

By then the other guys have joined me over the front lines and we all fly back home. As I fill up my surprising claim for a 6th victory, the CO advises me I have been awarded the DSO.

Corsaire;

Bet that was a nice surprise! "DSO"!!

I noticed RNAS-4 flying out of Coudekerque! I'm with RNAS-5 also stationed at Coudekerque and just flew a mission on the 16th July @ 14h28 (Arty Spotting)! I must keep an eye out for you!

Hi Corsaire,

you might have hit pilot and wound, or worse, killed him. Good shooting and congratulations for the DSO.

July 16, 1916



Having arrived at my new squad, command immediately assigned me to a flight of four Rolands intent on reconning the border only 12 miles away from our field at Brullin Higny.

I'd just come out of my initial climb, with my flight leader (Oberleutnant Milch) trying to form up, when I saw a TRAIN pass beneath us. Showcasing world famous German discipline and elan, I immediately broke formation to buzz them. I could imagine Milch shaking his head and muttering 'Rookies' as I swooped away.

Well, my first approach was bad. I was coming in at an angle from it's rear right, and the train itself was about to bear right. It was also passing through forest, and I don't trust the Roland's turning characteristics enough for sudden maneuvers. I passed somewhere in front of the train intent on turning around.

I didn't want to lose my flight entirely though so I glanced over to see how they were doing. They'd completely broken formation. In fact, there were too many dots over there. And they were dancing.

Scheisse.

I abandoned the poor train and rushed over to help my comrades, when two of the hostiles broke off to see if I'd like to join the party. I simply have no idea what happened to one of them, but the other - a Nieuport 16 - wanted to make me his partner.

He managed to get on about my 7:00 at point blank range. I'd fired a few initial shots during his flyby, but no hits. With him almost on my rear... I was too low to chance actually banking left. My QCs with the Roland suggest she does NOT like to go against the torque of her rotary engine. It was therefore hard rudder left, with the wind of a borderline stall constantly in my ears, trying to stay ahead of him until he gave up. I did not dare try anything else.

My observer fired several solid bursts, at first with little effect. When he finally fired on me there were a number of hits, but nothing vital. Finally I heard tearing fabric: His. He spun away, and I chased him until I was sure he couldn't recover.

I looked around: No hostiles. No friendlies for that matter. No point in continuing therefore, so I began the 2 mile trek back home.

But not before I buzzed the train.



While approaching Brullin Higny, I noticed a friendly in his down wind approach, which at least convinces me I made the right choice in aborting my mission. I was a little high on my own approach, so plan A was to turn around and try again, when my fuel warnings started going off. The #%&*$# had hit my tank!

Our aerodrome is mostly surrounded by forest, no chance of simply landing in a nearby field, and I felt I was too low to try to turn around, run out of gas, and hope to last long enough to deadstick in. I dove for the field, then pulled up at the last second. It was a hard landing...but a successful one.

Time of flight, start to finish: 0.13 hours. If the Nieuports keep coming to me I might have trouble getting my 3 hours in.
