Lou, I would never trust the Royal Canadian Mail, or any other delivery firm, to handle such a valuable commodity as a 20 + year old Balvenie, Macallen, or even a Highland Park for that matter. I will however, extend the availability of my personal reserve to you if you are ever in my neck of the woods.
This would include bed and breakfast as well. (you must bring your own female companionship as that is not a commodity that I offer biggrin ).

Just to entice you a bit, I have sent you a PM of a list of my personal stock reserve.

All the best mate.

Olham; those Rolands look mighty fine. I have never taken one up for a flight but seeing your screen caps has sparked a flame to try one out. I shall have a go in QC and see how it handles Sir. The sharks mouth sure looks good on that round nosed craft.

Robert, the Roland is a sturdy craft, and I often see my wingmates flying them like scouts.
They boom and zoom up and down like wasps. Well, I also have 5 victories on this craft yet.
The downward view is real bad. But I am glad I have this craft - I'll stick with it, until
the Halberstadt - or even better: the Albatros - arrives.

Sub Flight Ltn. Edward Eastwood
RNAS 5, Aug. 1st
Dawn Patrol: Railyard Bombing near Lens. 4 Machines. 3 DH2 escorts from 29 Sqd. Made it to target without incident. Just before target Turner turns and dives toward them. I drop my eggs as we were over the lines and follow. Sent one down in flames. Ashford got another. I headed home and on my return was told the rail yard sustained damage. Good Job! Someone bombed it but not me.

Afternoon Patrol: 6 machines, 3 escorts. Recy mission near Diksmuide. Must be important to send the whole damned squadron! At patrol area everyone dives on 4 EIII's below us. No way I am getting into that furball. When the circus is over 4 of us form back up and we continue mission and head home. Poor Ashford and his Obs. Wade didn't make it but not before sending one of the Huns to his grave.

Aug. 2nd.
Dawn Patrol. Flt. Ltn. Marshall and myself are tasked with Arty spotting. 6 Nieuports as escort. No contact at all but CO. says we must give it another go.
Evening Patrol. 3 machines. No escorts. Same as this morning. No contact, which was fine with me.


Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.

Olham; I just took a spin in a Roland. It's a little heavy handed from what I am used to but quite maneuverable and stable in a stall. You are correct about the downward view. The cut-out wings help but not a lot. It must be hard to track an enemy plane if it is forward of you and drops below your nose. The most difficult part for me was landing. I was able to judge my distance from the ground but with no forward view, I had no idea how close to the runway I was. It was terribly frightening and I wanted to jump up on the wing and look over the top!! I could see how you could easily touch down too soon or overshoot the runway. How are you managing it and what was your first opinion on landings?

I never found them too frightening really. Not sure about the mechanics on the field though.
We told them to stay out of the way, while we come in.
I approach the field in a long left curve, the craft slightly banked to the left, so I see everything.
When I'm lined up with the field, I wagg the wings left and right a bit, to see where I am.
I approach the road which goes round our airfield, at ca. 20 meter altitude, sinking.
When I see the roadway appearing in the cutout, I pull throttle fully back.
The grass left and right seems to give a good impression, if you are still balanced left and right.
Then: touchdown and roll-out.
I never lift from my seat, to look forward over the wing.
It has become routine.
As I said: I am beginning to like the "Walfisch"! pilot

I have flown the Walfisch many hours in coop missions and campaigns in RoF and never sweated a landing (I had more griefs about the climb rate when loaded), will have to try the WOFF one on a next campaign (when my present DiD pilot dies - which will happen sometimes, I intend to switch sides.)

Well, I hope you will be able to continue your good going carreer for much longer.
But if it should happen that your pilot falls, I will be pleased to welcome you
in our ranks - we always need good pilots, Corsaire!

MFair;

It's interesting to compare your missions with mine since I am also in RNAS-5. Your missions for Aug 1st and 2nd are clearly different than mine.

I don't question the authorities Robert. I just do as I am told! Maybe a parrellel universe with slight differences.
By the way, the brunette that lives in the farmhouse southeast of the field is mine.

I liked my "BBW", Big Beautiful Whale, she can't dance like my British babes, but is better at going dowm.
"Squirrly Shirley", my Fokker EIII is a crazy headcase, but I love the view.

May have solved the mystery Robert. I have erroneously put RNAS 5. I am in RNAS 4. That my explain the difference in the missions. She does not have a sister but her mother is a widow.

I don't think the campaign missions in WOFF are scripted, but rather are generated randomly. If correct then people in the same squad would not necessarily get the same missions. I am actually in RNAS-5 so will try to take notice (once I escape back to base) if my missions match with Roberts.

The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:



3 Aug 1916 @ 06h26 Railyard attack at Roulers Junction East of Rumbeke aerodrome.

Escort of 6 DH. 2s from RFC-29 out of Abeele

Shook lead the flight with Soar, Mesurier and myself accompanying. We had clear skies for bombing and crossed the lines without being molested. Upon approach to Rumbeke field we say 6 EIIIs pass under us heading west and they either didnt see us or had other pressing engagements. As we got closer to Rumbeke two EIIIs crossed my path and so I broke formation to attack them. I was quickly accompanied and although I hit both craft, my mates finished them off. Our cover DH. 2s managed to find and tangle with the 6 EIIIs which must have circled back and were now engaged with the DH. 2s.
My mates also entered the fray and so I stayed high and broke away to take a swat at the Railyard. I unloaded all my pills and they hit the mark on the storage sheds heavily damaging both. Shook and Soar managed to break free and also attack the railyard with solid hits. A flight which followed us clobbered the Railyard and had no enemy engagements probably thanks to us. I met up with Soar on the way home and as we landed the others showed up and touched down successfully. Shook and Soar had some light damage requiring 2 days to repair.

YouTube Video:



3 Aug 1916 @ 14h59 Recon of enemy troop and vehicle movement east of Ypres.

Hill lead the flight with myslef, and Huskisson accompanying. a flight sent 5 Strutters to follow up and assist. The flight was quiet until we approached the recon area when 4 EIIIs showed up in front of us and wanted to tangle. We obliged them and during the frey I shot one down. More EIIIs began to show up and I saw Hill down at least two and Huskisson likewise. A flight engaged as well and between us we cleared the sky. As we were about to finish our mission we saw more EIIIs in the distance. I saw Hill flying low and heading west so I kept altitude at 4000 and followed. I did not see Huskisson but we all showed up at base safely with no damage.

BBC interview 1962..

Can you explain how and when you moved to 19 RFC ?

looking back I think it must have been near then end of July 1916. My Bus was one of the oldest in 16 Squadron, and I was ordered to fly it over to St.Omer north and get a newer one. I had no Observer in the front cockpit, just some sandbags to compensate for the weight. As I neared St.Omer I noticed a rather strange looking Bus flying around. At first I thought it was another Be2, and that the pilot had gone mad. I say that because he was flying and stunting just like a scout pilot would, but never a Be2 pilot. I watched him for a while and decided to follow him and do the same. I was amazed, for Id never flown the Be2 like this before, and no matter what the other chap did I would simply follow him. And then he noticed me. He then waved at me, sort of calling me out, and we started a sort of midair combat with each of us stunting and such to get on the tail end of the other. And to my surprise I won that little show and then we both landed.

After Id dismounted, the other chap came over and introduced himself as Major William Douglas Stock Sanday, C.O. of 19 RFC. They had just arrived in France and were converting to the new Be12 scout. Well he was very complementary about my flying and said he needed Be pilots like myself and asked me to transfer on the spot. I, being very young, was easily talked into this adventure and replied with a yes, Sir. A few days later I received my orders to move over to 19 RFC at Fienvillers down in the Somme sector.

Hey All,

Like the flight sim and forum.

Probably already explained, but I was just wondering why mission mods were left out of the "A" category. Dunno, but they look like harmless text files to me.
