Inspired by a screenshot I decided to do a turkey shoot scenario where a couple of Halberstadts take on a gaggle of Caudron IV planes. I spawned in the air at 12000 feet and the enemy were at 10000 feet. Unfortunately the weather was not nice and there were a lot of clouds between us. In the driving rain I soon lost sight of them and had to descend below the clouds to find my airfield and land. I was told in the briefing that I had damaged my airplane and it would be a day before I could fly again too.
I was thinking that this must have happened many times in real life where the targets were lost in cloud and escaped. I must have been very frustrating for the eager fighter pilot. Terrific sim, scenery and weather is just great. Thanks OBD.
