I think he will get a C.1 before he ever sees a single seater scout. I've been very good at not peeking with him, so I don't know when he gets a new airplane or what airplane it will be. It's been hard, but it has made it more fun for me.

Well, I would have voted to end the scoring if I would have been here but I was late. Whatever you want to do is fine with me Banjoman.

Adalwolfe was thinking of transfering to a scout squadron but all this talk of bad EIII's has me concerned! If the transfer comes through I might be like Stachle. "I would rather prove myself here."

MFair, it's a challenge to last long in a squad flying the Fokker E series....

Right now my squad has Aviatiks and two Pfalz EIIIs. Think Fokker EIs come in later to replace the Pfalz EIIIs, and then Rolands replace them, and then more Rolands come in replacing the Aviatiks.

Sorry for being a bit sloppy with the Reports, Dec/Jan are always hectic months, here... but that does not count for Berthold Bruchlandung, my new Character.

After living up to his Name in the Avi C, Rudi Berthold handed over his old Fokker E1 to him, after Rudi's brand new E3 arrived. Bert took a few Spins with the E1, where nothing really happened, just to find out, that the Decision was met for the Squad to go back to the Avis again.
He did not fly a lot since then because of the abysmal Weather.
Currently, he thinks about transferring to the Fa 62...

Since myself and two other people voted to remove the scoring from the status report, I'm going to say that the motion passes. Therefore, the scoring field has now been made a non-required field. I'm going to leave it in because we might want to use it again.

Bad weather for flying in Alsace, but much has been going on with Dolf's squad. Three pilots of great promise have transferred in and they have been given Fokker EIIs. Dolf and his wingman Edgar are the only pilots flying the Pfalz EIII.

There are six observers in the squad, currently only one 2 seater Aviatik CI, and no pilot is assigned to fly it.

We lost Conner today. I am stunned beyond words and I'm having a hard time comprehending the magnitude of our loss. Conner was my wingman and my friend. He and I worked together as a team for a long time. He knew what I wanted without my asking and also was there guarding my back. He had worked so hard and had actually raised his score from four when he started as my wingman to his final tally of ten. I think the hardest thing to bear in his passing is the utter senselessness of his death. Edward, Conner, and myself were attacking a pair of Aviatiks. Edward had already driven the other off and I had severely wounded the second and when Conner moved in to apply the coup de grace, he must have misjudged the distance and collided with the Hun. They both went down in flames; it was hopeless.

Banjoman, all my best WOFF wingmen died in that scenario.
Was he "getting up there" in victories?
I had one wingman make it to 14.
WOFF calls the player an ACE at 15.

Banjoman, all, thank you for the warm welcome! Let's see how long I last in a BE2C! smile Good to be involved at last.

Harry, welcome to the fray.

MadWasp, lost a wingman who actually was promoted all the way to Captain, 15 victories, 6 medals. Can't ask for more. As far as I remember he finished the same way. He was tough enough to survive the crash but perished in the hospital. Infection I suppose.

I didn't mention that Conner made it all the way to Squadron Commander and received 3 medals.

That does hurt even more. Good men are hard to find.

Well since there is no scoring then I'll set priorty to my Hun Career in Olham's DID Camapign. I'll continue the 2 careers but not stick to the time line anymore. This give me more freedom to fly when I want to.

Do you want me to restart the scoring? I removed it because I didn't think anybody really cared, but if it was important to you then I can just include it again and make it mandatory.

don't change because of me. I was beginning to find that too many DID pilots were getting in the way for me.

MudWasp, I was following his career closed than my own. And then a boneheaded move like that...
