Those guys were ferocious! Never seen a SPAD dogfight like that, but @Burdohl sent me home seriously wounded. 🤕😮

 

Yes, at ca. 1h 39m.

 

Double accounts 😁

 

I wish for more confrontation with those gents, this was really challenging and FUN! After the fights, together with @1PL-Lucas-1Eskwe recalled past encounters from the early RoF years vs @=FB=VikS and @=FB=Vaal and other Flying Barans' guys - similary incredible fights, always.

I was in that D7 which gave you time to disengage and do not FF. You were seriously wounded and had very small chances to survive that crazy aggressive and well handled Spad 😉

Glad you make it save after that FF !

...Sometimes you just need to take a break from the "Serious" flying 😉

Thanks for saving me there! 😄 Much appreciated! 💯 The FF incident was vexing, but it all worked out in the end! 😅👍

Nope! Can't take the credit for that one...!

What kind of maniac would even consider flying a SPAD in that fashion? And from below? Absolute heresy. The 3PG better have a word with him.

Check the canvas in your 3PG SPADS! 😄

But, seriously, that was really amazing. I wish I would record more. Was a great pleasure watching boom and zoom attack of two S13 which was performed in a great coordination. And those long range bursts from below, ouch!

S!

After flying in JG1's Flanders in Flames online war, I switched to Flying Circus for a livestream. I took a SPAD to even the sides. Had been some time since I'd flown in one of those! @I./JG1_Pfeil joined me shortly after I got on and we had a really good sortie together! We each bagged one kill and - thanks to Pfeil's excellent situational awareness - we managed to survive a situation that very nearly could have lead to our demise.
 
One of the reasons I love flying in JG1; good times with awesome wingmen. 😎
 
As an added bonus, running chat commentary for the stream was provided by Emperor @US213_Biddle

This afternoon, I had a great time on the Flugpark server winging up with @J133-BryMack and @J133-G_von_Floppa! We flew high, we flew low, we had triumphant moments, we nearly died. All in all, a pretty average day on the Flugpark server! 😁

 

Thanks for letting me tag along guys! Was a hoot! 😃

Good afternoon guys!

 

For those who aren't aware, Jasta 5's Spring Offensive is now live! Every Saturday until May 1, from 1600 GMT to 2000 GMT, scores of pilots take to the skies for historical air combat with a moving front line. Unfortunately, my next few Saturdays are probably going to be full, so this is likely my only chance to participate. But WOW...am I glad I did! Iffy DMs notwithstanding, J5 put together an awesome campaign! 

 

I ended up flying SPADs in defense of the Southern sector, flying with 1PL, Tailmange, and CubanCoveRunner. We had some awesome dogfights, adrenaline-pumping ground attack stuff, and I ended up getting stuck in a fence on landing, repaired and managed to unstick myself by running the engine at full and wriggling my way out. 😂 All in all, lots of fun and stuff you don't see everyday!

Nice work. 

Re the collision wing damage. That appears to be handled completely differently to gunfire wing damage by the dm. We've had guys collide, with the wing knocked askew and struts damaged, but could actually pull maneuvers! Yet a wing with a couple of bullet holes just breaks off with a slight load.

 

Our conclusion is its 2 separate criteria. 

 

Collisions with fences are less well documented ;)

Had a blast on Flugpark today! Despite having some technical issues with our Discord channel in the middle, our squad was able to all connect on the Flugpark Discord. (Shout out to Jasta 5 for providing the Discord server and the Flugpark multiplayer server too! 🙂)
 
Today, JG1 fielded 6 pilots. We had action low early on where we nearly lost JG1_Loopy. However, Loopy cheated the reaper and survived an attack by two bandits until we could arrive. 💪 The next mission, we hit some ground targets and had a cat and mouse game with three high Bristols. All in all, it was great to fly with my wingmen again! 😎

This afternoon, JG1 ran the dry run for our upcoming Flanders in Flames campaign. Red Team will be starting flying Allied, so I got the chance to fly Se5a for a change! She isn't the easiest bird to fly, but when flown with a cracking team of wingmen, she can be quite effective! 😎
 
Flanders in Flames will be going live starting next Saturday, October 23. If you're interested to join, you can register on our forums (and find more tournament information) at the links below.

Last night I saw a few folks on Flugpark, so I hopped on to help seed the server. Since the Allies were outnumbered, I temporarily defected and took an Se5a for King and Country. I didn't have a lot of time to fly, but it was still quite fun! I ended up having one fight where @US103_Parsons and I had some awesome no-comms teamwork to attack a marauding D.VII.
 
10/10 would do again! 😄

Had some time to get on the Flugpark server in Flying Circus this afternoon and am so glad I could make it! The skies were full and I had some of the best dogfights I've had in a while. Really felt like a warzone! 😎
I had the pleasure of flying with @JG1_Rotermann and later also @JG1_loopy and JG1_Etzel. It was an absolute blast winging with you guys; here's to the next time! 🍻

That flight of three Bristols with escorts (Camel and SE5a) was a few of us SYN guys. Good scrap with a lot of planes around and quite a few other friendlies helping out. I was in the backseat of the lead Bristol, took a few pot shots at several enemies but nothing conclusive. My pilot (SYN_Vander) was badly wounded and we barely made it home. Very atmospheric mission and great dogfight.

That was a very atmospheric dogfight indeed! Felt like stuff straight out of the history books. You SYN gents handled yourselves quite well! I got some shots into you guys but nothing conclusive either, I believe. Salute!

We were credited with one air kill, but we have no idea who it was since we had fired at so many enemies during that mission! We were carrying bombs all the time as the plan was to take out a target that another group would photograph, but they never made it home. 
 

It looks awesome flying between those cloud layers doesn’t it!?!

Salute gents! Have a bit of a double feature here today. Yesterday I ended up taking an Se5a up on Flugpark after JG1's Flanders in Flames campaign. Had some fun action and some real cat and mouse moments against very dedicated opponents.
 
Also, today, I ended up catching the tail end of the Sunday afternoon/evening action on Flugpark and had the pleasure of flying Pfalz D.IIIas with JG1_Loopy, JG1_Bussard, and JG1_Chewie. We ended up getting into some high altitude scraps with several recon packages. Then, I ended up staying a little later to put the Pfalz D.XII through her paces in the dogfight area of the map after it rolled.
 
Had a blast in Flying Circus this weekend! Thank you to my fantastic wingmen, to JG1 for putting on a phenomenal dead-is-dead campaign (sorry, no livestream of this for tactical reasons), and to J5 for maintaining the Flugpark server. I will see you all over the front again soon! 😎
