Thanks, Robert!

I have a quick question...once I recover and can fly again, WOFF often offers two missions a day. Can I fly both of them towards the DiD campaign. I thought I read where I could only fly 1 mission per day for DiD, but I'm seeing others flying two. Did the rules change at some point, as I must confess I haven't read all 183 pages to catch up on everything. I won't be able to fly 2 missions per day all the time, but sometimes I'm good for a second sortie.

Thanks!

Bucksnort, The way I understand it, you can fly as many or as few missions per day as WOFF presents in "Historical" mission frequency. You can skip days too, just remember to manually advance WOFF to the corresponding IRL date.

Buck, you can fly as many missions per date, as the CO gives you.
Just watch out for the date changing.

Still grounded by lack of planes and a three day week end as from tomorrow. Probably no flight until Monday... ( and Mrs Corsaire will be on holiday for three weeks starting Monday, so we will be away for some time during these weeks )
I count on you guys to win the war in the meantime, we must be home for Christmas ! smile2

Don't worry Corsaire. The Escadrille Americaine will be on guard.

Enjoy your leave, and enjoy the holidays.

After that you might want to transfer to the Escadrille Americane? We have plenty of N11and N16 in spare.

Salute

The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




15 Aug 1916 @ 05h50 Railyard attack on Athies Junction east of Arras

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

I lead the flight with Parsons and Huskisson accompanying.
We had strato-cumulous above 5000 ft so we flew just under them to the target area. The flight was uneventful and we didnt encounter any enemy aircraft. We bombed the target successfully. Huskisson clobbered it dead centre with his load and so he gets free drinks tonight!. After the bomb run we quickly headed west and landed at Savy field.
The local boys at Savy greeted us heartily and led us into the mess for a nice warm breakfast while are aircraft were checked out. We then headed back to Coudekerque for some nap time.

YouTube Video:


15 Aug 1916 @ 14h05 Railyard attack on Roulers Junction E of Roulers

Escort 2 Nieuport 11s from RNAS-1 out of Furnes

I leaed the flight with Parsons and Huskisson accompanying. We had tightly scattered cumulous from 6000 to 8000 ft. As we crossed the lines the cloud cover cleared well enough to make out the target so we climbed to 9000 to get above the flak. We successfully bombed the railyard and then set course for Coudekerque. We didnt encounter any enemy aircraft throughout the flight. A nice jaunt with some successful bombing is all anyone could wish for. When we arrived back at base the C.O. called me into his office to advise me that my last EIII I downed over our base had been confirmed. Isnt it wonderful that everyone on the base saw it downed by me and we all collected souvenirs and now the brass confirms for me that it actually happened!

Intelligence officer Oberleutnant Heinrich Schredder reads a snippet of info, which was intercepted
on the way to a WW I aviation forum:

"Mmuahahahahaaa!!!" he laughs in a most alarming way;
"Zatt vill enjoy General Hoeppner! Der Englishman Ackworth and der whole RNAS-4
arr not operational ant vill remain grounded until Monday att leaszt?
Vee vill bomb zem back to stone age!"

Unteroffizier Meyer, who is just writing orders with three copies each, dares to mutter:
"Buttt vee hav ze same problemz, Herr Oberleutnant. Moszt units hav to stay grounded."

"Vott?!? No planez? Bleech! Vee muszt telegraph to der OBD zenn - zey muszt deliver der promised Zeppelins!"

Albert "Mushroom" Ward enters the C.O.'s office and is advised of the plight of RNAS-4 not having enough strutters to fly until Monday. Albert informs the adjutant to send a quick telegraph to his cousin Charles who lives in Northern Ontario, Canada, requesting him to give the orders to dispatch the secret weapon being held at the Canadian training base in England to RNAS-5. This secret weapons should slow down the enemy flights for awhile.

Special handling instructions for secret weapon:

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, open the containers!! They are severely hazardous to your health!! They must be dropped on the enemy aifields!! They contain millions of voracious Canadian Black flies, Deer flies and mosquitoes! There is no known effective protection from these little devils except complete coverage of the body by protective clothing!! You will recognize these containers as black cylinders with the notation on their length "Greetings to the Kaiser from Canada".

Thanks for the invitation.Indeed it will help, but there is one special thing that will light up my mood. I just wanna get rid of that N11, and get the N16, and some more ammodrums. But I'm afraid, i will not have any until I have 5 victories, or the new N17 will be delievered.

Cheers Pal!

Olham, if only it could have been that easy my friend!

By the way, does your squadron at Pronvill ever get any missions to the Vitry en Artois / Athies area? I frequently get missions to bomb the railyard at Athies Junction which is 15 miles from Pronville.

Yes, we often use Athies as a waypoint. Our recon areas are usually at Arras and south of it.
Would be funny to meet you one day - I guess we would just travel on to do our business,
without shooting at each other.

Or,...on our return to base and due to unfortunate circumstances, get separated from our flights and based on prior agreement, land somewhere to share a Schnapps and some good English Devon Cream strawberry tarts and some good jokes!
