Well, that's a nice compliment, Casey - thank you! But mind you: WOFF is not a game.

Thanks all for the ideas - yeah, okay, we will make one chart, Jim.
I guess the weekend is a time when everyone can fly most.
So if you can, Jim, send me a chart on Monday - midday or evening, as you can.

But: IMPORTANT NOTE - I cannot promise it will be without mistakes after that change.
I can only promise I will double-try my best.




Whos free of failure, might throw the first stone........

Dont know whats all the fuzz about. Mistakes happen,anyone whos not good with it, might take over and do the work better......

for the agme,...ok thats right,...simulation. you got me here.

This is the end, old chum, I thought. I landed as safely as I could (dodging a post caused me to shred a lower wing) and expected to be taken prisoner.

The debrief said I was forced to land, but fortunately made it back to friendly territory! Must have been a close

That's when you go from total disappointment to the sigh of relief and joy. I do not know if it helps with the odds of getting back over the lines but I try to find some woods to land by hoping that helps my chances of escape. Good luck to you! It seems to be on your side today.

I regarded it as a good sign, and I have never been bored with OFF or WOFF - never!

But thank God, no, I don't make charts in my dreams!

Believe me, it was a much cheekier question!
But all I can give away here (without violating the aforementioned forum rules)
is, that my answer was: "Oh, it would be my pleasure!"
Mmuahahahahaaa!!!

But now we better stop this kinda talk - after all we are all gentlemen here,
and we are in the "DiD Campaign" thread, aren't we?

With no flying yesterday due to the brass hats at HQ forgetting that July has thirty-one days Captain Burroughs decided to work with his ground crew and have a bit of painting done on his new kite. His flight sergeant asked what he wanted for markings and the Captain said, "Something that can be seen from a distance that will show it's me." They started with a blue square but decided that didn't stand out enough so they added a white frame to it. The Captain noted that made it look like an unfinished picture and instructed the boys to paint a white square in the middle of the affair after-which he declared it "Done".

The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




1 Aug 1916 @ 14h53 Railyard attack at Roulers Junction

Hervey lead the flight with Parsons, Mesurier and myself accompanying.
The flight to the railyard was quiet with no enemy aircraft sighted as we passed over Rumbeke aerodrome. We pummeled the railyard and Hervey gave the sign to return to base. At this point I decided to return to the sight of my morning encounter with the Hun sausage and when I arrived there I was delighted to see that they had replaced it with a new one for me to have a go at. I dived too steeply and the fabric on my wings started to shed. I leveled out came around and had another go at it and set it alight. I then headed back to base. The fitters were fit to be tied when they saw my lower wings. I bought them a round to appease them somewhat.

YouTube Video:



2 Aug 1916 @ 06h13 Bombing of Houplin aerodrome

Escort of 3 DH. 2 from RFC-29 out of Abeele

Booker lead the flight with Myself and Huskisson accompanying. "A" flight sent one Strutter on ahead as advance lead. We encountered a gaggle of EIIIs just before approaching Houplin and Parsons elected to engage. I downed 3 EIIIs in the melee. Booker got one and Huskisson another. Booker elected to return to base but I made a bomb run on the airfield before leaving but hit nothing. On the way back I downed a Hun sausage just west of Houplin airfield.

After a somewhat charmed run of 32 sorties without a scratch, Albert Addleson has finally caught a bullet. He is lightly injured, but worse, was forced to land with a dead engine behind enemy lines. He and his observer (also injured) are now under guard in a German hospital. Albert has noticed that security is lax, and is formulating a clever plan to escape.

Below is a link to a video of his downing near Roulers Junction. His flight leader foolishly took the 'bait' of a lone Eindecker over Rumbeke airfield, and then we were caught in a German trap when at least four more EIII's pounced from heights unseen. Stupid Albert (or should I say stupid me) forgot to drop his bombs, and his observer wasn't very alert on the rear gun until it was too late. The dead-engine glide is brutal to watch, as three Eindeckers riddle us with bullets all the way down.

Haven't watched the video yet, but all in all it sounds like you had no bad, but BIG luck, Sir!
Sorry for your loss - or do I detect a hint, that Addleson might escape in 10 days???

Tough break Scout. Sometimes they will not show any mercy. It looks like they were trying to end your life all the way down. Good luck on your escape plans. Hope they work out and you are back in the war soon. Great landing under hard conditions by the way!

What do you expect? They had the cheek to attack a single Eindecker over Rumbeke!
What do you think would the British scouts do with a German, who attacked one
of their comrades over Bertangles airfield? Invite him for tea?

My guess is 77_Scout will escape.

Just a note Olham:
6.57 of my total 7.45 hours were medium, the rest were hard as I just got transferred to Vert Galand in Flanders South. I may have entered something incorrectly...not sure. I plan on flying a few missions this weekend so maybe this can be fixed on the next chart. Thanks for everything you do buddy!

Flight Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - Coudekerque - 01 August 1916 (Mission 29)

After a day at the beach, it's back to the office ! I draw the afternoon flight and at 13:30 I take off as number two of a flight of five led again by Flight Cdr "Destructor" Whealdon. Mission is a reco over enemy ground units near Lens. We have an escort of five DH2 from Abeele.

Being number two means that Cdr Whealdon's observer will take the photos, while I watch his six, the DH2s are supposed to watch mine... We circle the target high (12000 ft) for 20 minutes, taking all kinds of pictures and head home to Coudekerque. Not one enemy plane in sight, maybe the Kaiser gave then two days off instead of just one ?

Carl von Fisk
SS 27b
August 1, 1916



Grrr....

So, having given Herr von Fisk the week off while practicing 'A' flying in a Strutter, I decided to take him up and see how we did. I was nervous about using 'A' rules with him since I don't have nearly as much faith in a Roland as a Strutter, but hey. You only die once.

Anyway, flight rules didn't end up being the problem.

Once more it was me and Leutnant Geigl, he of the many observers. We took off and begin riding northeast to gain altitude.

At this point I noticed I was on the verge of running him down, so idled my engine and dipped below him. I immediately looked up as I didn't want to lose sight of him.

That's when he dropped into me.

It happened in slow motion, and I was too stunned and/or outraged to try to dodge. He simply dropped altitude and sailed right into me.

I hate you too, buddy.

So ends Carl von Fisk, his observer, and Geigl's observer. Geigl, of course, simply brushes off his flight jacket and catches a ride back to base.

GRRR.

Sorry to hear that, Cat.
A quick reaction is what you definitely need as a combat pilot, in any dangerous situation.
Better remember that next time, or you won't live long in this war.
Rest in peace, Carl!
Seems you now need a name with "D"...

The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:

2 Aug 1916 @ 06h13 Bombing of Houplin aerodrome

Escort of 3 DH. 2 from RFC-29 out of Abeele

Booker lead the flight with Myself and Huskisson accompanying. A flight sent one Strutter on ahead as advance lead. We encountered a gaggle of EIIIs just before approaching Houplin and Parsons elected to engage. I downed 3 EIIIs in the melee. Booker got one and Huskisson another. Booker elected to return to base but I made a bomb run on the airfield before leaving but hit nothing. On the way back I downed a Hun sausage just west of Houplin airfield.

YouTube Video: no capture


2 Aug 1916 @ 14h20 Railyard Attack at Roulers Junction east of Rumbeke aerodrome.

Escort of 2 Nieuport 11s from RNAS-1 Furnes.
Parsons lead the flight with Hervey, Shook, and Myself accompanying.
We ran into a mess of EIIIs while approaching the Junction and did not manage to make our bomb run. We engaged the EIIIs I took a few hits during the engagement but managed to down 2 EIIIs. The N11s and the rest of my squad dealt with the rest of them. Parsons elected to turn for home so I followed. I took some more hits crossing the enemy trenches. All of us but Shook had light damage with 2 days to repair. The C.O. said this this is a critical target and that we must make another run at it. He also indicated that my 8 outstanding claims have been confirmed and that I will be receiving the VC. The boys will want to celebrate but tomorrows mission is of utmost importance so we will have to keep it to a small affair.
