Looks like we're right around the same hours. Neat stuff.

Good luck to you sir!

And to you too. I need it as I am on my 4th pilot!

Thank you all for the kudos on my DID pilot's promotion to Captain. I am curious to see if and when Artemus makes it to Major what HQ will do about his assignment. In RL he would most probably have been given his own command. Can't imagine that Major Hawker would hand over the keys to 24 Squadron so young Burroughs would have to move on. Of course if it's after 23 November Major Hawker will have little to say in the matter, (knowing what history has in store can be a real thrill killer in this sim some times).

T'was hard...

...to let B-flight alone ca. 1000 Meters lower, when they got jumped by 4 - 6 Nupes!
I had decided before the mission, that I would not approach the lines below 2600 Meters;
and that I wouldn't try to fight them out, when they ran into another fine mess.
And they did exactly that!
Several bright specs were dancing below me, well visible above the mud, while I tried
to concentrate on the course. We knew we had reached the recon area, when the light grey
puffs of the British "Archie" appeared by the dozen.
I circled there, and then I turned into our terrain. At least one spec seemed to approach
me now, at same altitude, and I pushed the stick and reached over 200 km/h. No Nieuport
can catch up with that, and we reached Pronville.
But I had only just rolled out, when that little Missus Beastly arrived and fired a burst.
Our collective fire from the ground made her think again - and off she drove.

Yippee! my transfer to 70RFC with 1 Strutters has come through. I don't think I would have lasted much longer in the DH2 as every time I try to bank it hard it spins or stalls on me...

Congrats to your transfer, Jim - I hope you will now last long!

LtCasey, you must make a "screen capture" of the log (hit "Print",
then insert it in PAINT or whatever you use).

Thy Olham,

actual Status of Bernd Guth. This Recce thingy is getting boring. Today we lost 3/4 of the Staffel in an aircrash,..... The guys do not stay sharp.

Ich denke hier muss mal wieder exerziert werden!






Transfer request sent to Jasta 1!

Olham, one minor correction on your latest chart. Captain Burroughs has 52 missions under his belt, you are still showing 46. Thanks again for all your time and effort on this campaign, it is much appreciated Sir.

Sorry, but the chart I received showed no wounded flyers this time.

All corrections will appear with the Sunday chart (and new mistakes will be built in, I suppose...)
