High over the Front
Apparently being unaware that "Random Aircraft Failures" really mean something with the Se5 in April 1917 this truck convoy decides to meander thru my favorite crash landing area. Luckily I was able to “thread the needle.”
First flight with 56 Squadron (in PE) but I still got the touch. Well kind of. I did overshoot the aerodrome I was aiming for. Nobody crash lands better then me though!

Yepper, the onliest pilots I have lost to aircraft failures have been SE5s. I can usually land OK cause they glide like crazy but it is tough to work around an engine fire.

You ever read “High in the Empty Blue” which is the history of 56 Squadron? One of my favorite books by the way.
Anyway the amount of malfunctions experienced with the Se5 in its first two months by them, in all categories, is frankly astounding. Especially with the weapons. Amazing they shot down anyone.

I've been searching for a copy of High in the Empty Blue for awhile now, but haven't managed to track one down. I have heard it is a good one.

I moved to Manitoba this summer, so I am hoping to explore the used bookstores in Winnipeg at some point.

Took me a long while to get it. Finally did from an estate sale from a Texas collector. Mint condition too.
Good luck!

High over the Front
5 January 1917 with 60 Squadron in a N16.
After having my little bird vomit its oil on my windscreen the previous day (causing a forced landing just past NML) I was assigned a Balloon Busting mission. As the plane could not be recovered so close to the front I had hoped to get a N17 but no such luck,
I didn't check my loadout prior to takeoff but I guess the armorer figured I needed rockets. Note to self: Figure out the command to fire said rockets before entering combat.
Anyway on my second pass with my trusty Lewis the Hun sausage began to smoke before bursting into flames on my third.

Some great pictures being posted by people.

These two are from my current career which I'm 118 missions into. The date is 10th September 1916 and the sky seems full of Nieuports.......well....less this one thumbsup

Yes it's certainly my longest career so far in WOFF in terms of missions.

85 of them were flying Roland CII's and the rest with Jasta 1 and then Jasta 3. it's been two missions a day throughout as the Battle of the Somme is raging.

Managed to get a good clean copy last year for around £50.

Some exciting stuff there!


I got fired as the door man at a sperm bank.
Apparently it's in poor taste to tell leaving customers "Thanks for coming."

First Triplane victory (in PE) over a luckless Sop 1 1/2. Fire started small then spread over about a minute till the plane fell apart. You can't see it in the pic but the pilot is slumped over. Poor SOB. Does the observer ever show wound/death effects?
