I think it is from my wing tip or tail end scraping the ground.
I was traveling, bouncing downhill along the road and headed for trees, so I swung the Nupe into a 180.

That is the first I've seen of such a spark show, have seen small dust clouds.

I prefer to lead flights, but sometimes it seems that doing so causes all enemy planes to target me.

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

Early October 1916 now for Jack and Esc LaF. He lead a flight of four N17s north towards the frontlines around St Die. Near the friendly airfield of Xaffervilles he spotted flak smoke and quickly spotted the source traveling head on at him. He fired off rounds into the nose of the Fokker quickly closing in on him. Almost had a collision with that pesky green Fokker.



Jack thought he had landed a round or two and that thought was confirmed when he was quickly able to get on the green Fokker's tail. He decided to let him test his dead stick skills, but his squadmates had other ideas in mind for that Fokker. Unfortunately they weren't all on the same page tactically and two of them crashed into each other in their haste to down the powerless wing warper.


As Jack shook his head in disgust he heard a Fokker engine below and behind him. He inverted, dove, and reversed direction to find the source of the sound. After a couple loops and half loops he was able to get his sight on the Fokker and eventually set him ablaze.

The closest I've been to loosing a pilot since playing WOFF....

I was limping home and flying solo returning to base after being slightly injured (78% health) from attacking some Re8s. Just about to cross the line to safety, when.... crack, crack, thump, thump, thump, crack, oof, oof... heavy breathing (health @ 33%)....then a loud snap. I check to my left and notice my top wing is damaged and struts are gone. Luckily, I was only about 50 meters or so above ground. My plane veers sharply to the left and starts to nose dive while I try to keep her steady for a few seconds enough to land some what level. She lands dragging her left lower wing on the ground while I slam the rudder full right and try to counter her rocking from side to side to avoid flipping over. Finally, she stops fighting me and sits still.

My pilot gets captured and hospitalized, but manages to escape. Whew!

I finally shot down an enemy plane in my N28 campaign with the 94th Aero.
That Nupe is hard for me to get a handle on!

2nd Lt Robert Williams flew far right position in a transfer to the new airfield of Toul which is a short distance away from their current field of Vancoulers.


Flak bursts greeted them as they approached their new home. he waited for the formation to attack or investigate the target of the Flak, but his flight went straight into a landing pattern. Robert could identify four german two seaters about 1/2 a mile away and decided to press his luck and attack.


He got lucky and killed the DFW's engine. Then almost collided with it in an attempt to finish it off.




That was a close call that should have caused him to back off and watch the DFW crash or dead stick a landing. He chose otherwise and made another pass at the powerless DFW that was descending in a slow spiral. This time his timing was better and he dewinged the DFW.





Welcome to Toul 2nd Lt Robert Williams.

The Sqn put up 4 ships for Dawn Patrol . We ran into a flight of 3 Two Seat Recon types below and heading for Hunland. Lots of fun till I got pasted by a reargun and took Heavy damage and a lite Wnd.

Those Avaitik CI's have a unique field of fire that is different than rear seat gunners.
Be careful with them! yep
