Scramble Mission (October 22, 2023): https://youtu.be/5r0xvBtZuBg?si=PV17l8zAeDx_8heJ
Three Fw-190's are attacking our base. I takeoff and bag two of them before landing.

Combat Landing a Ju-52 https://youtu.be/vbweRgLrSgA?si=QOVDIHvTNM9OGdsz
I am the one landing the Ju-52. I swithced the view so you could watch my landing from the perspective of another 352nd member (too_cool).
This was during a multi group campaign where it required the two of us to capture the airfield. The one on the ground captured the ground and after TC captured the flag it was necessary for me to land and drop off a load of cargo without getting killed.

Circus Tank (October 29, 2023): https://youtu.be/PWuzN_KcI3A?si=EAFHmTQq7EV7bnWa
This video shows one of the screwy yet funny glitches in logic that can happen during game play.

Furball over Bonninghardt
https://youtu.be/9TGpi6KOwSg

Video was taken from the Group Session of January 14, 2024. The Mission was flown on the Rheinland map.
Rheinland map @ IL-2 Mission Planner (Revived): https://serverror.github.io/IL2-Mission-Planner/#rheinland

Several of us were engaged with Bf-109’s and Fw-190s over and near the city of Bonninghardt in Grid 1421. As for my success during the mission let me sum it up by saying "Sometimes you are the windshield other times you are the bug…"

--------------------------------

Even though I know the sites are Global I am still quite often surprised at the interactions these videos or forums engender.
I posted this video on a DIscord channel a couple of days ago and I had an interesting conversation today with someone who actually lives in the area. According to them the German town of Alpen is actually mislabeled in the game as Bonninghardt. I looked it up on Google maps and they were definitely correct regarding the town naming..
