Flugpark is with some sort of a problem. I can't login. I was going for a walk before noon (15h GMT) and checked the barans site and saw no players, which is unusual on Sundays. I got home and there were no players either. I tried to login and couldn’t.

 

I just logged in and spawned on an airfield ...no issue 1:30 EST

Judging by my track, you were able to log into this server that day 🙂

Saw a few furballs tonight but seemed relatively quiet...although I was flying a little more conservative than usual. 

Was deeply annoyed to lose a wingman to a single Becker hit...the only round the EA fired that connected with anything...

Started on the 8th ended on the 9th, that's how good the battle was, If you came in we could have won it sooner.

Arrived later in the evening. Plenty Huns on but they seemed content to stay miles inside their own lines. Finally, a pair of Albs came over to fight...after 15 or so minutes of positioning on each other we managed to get one and had chased the other to the deck......when a Camel jumped right in front of us and pounced on our kill. Luckily the Hun bailed out before the Camel got too many strikes, so my wingman got credit for that one too. 

As we were linking back up from the Albatros fight, a lone D7 crossed my front. I got behind him and wounded the pilot twice...was just about to deliver the coup de grâce...and the map rolled. No Kill for me. 


I saw some good-looking big scraps from a distance, but each time they had broken up before I got over to them.
 

All in all a frustrating evening. Better luck next week, hopefully!

You know you might get more kills if you followed us.

This was my first attempt at the Furball and one of my first multiplayer experiences. Thank you Zatch and Oliver88 for letting me tag along and for the pointers. I managed to get the Brisfit back in one piece but didn't understand the mission properly so have to learn how to do that properly and then tried the S.E.5. Need to learn how to stay in formation and trim the aircraft properly but did manage to get a few shots at a Pfalz at one point. Thank you Jasta 5 for hosting the server and putting on such an enjoyable event.

 A Becker can give you a nice edge. All the planes we come up against are better and faster than ours. All we can do is hope to scare them. Loppnow fills his shells with paint. When he fires it....it makes nice pictures.

Good fun tonight, albeit with a late start after I initially couldn't connect to the IL2 master server! Anyone else have that issue tonight? 

Was surprised after taking off to see a pair of greentails chasing a SPAD all the way back to Lealvillers at treetop level, with another trio diving in from up high. Bold chaps! I wanted to go introduce myself but the Sopwith Armada beat me to it - although a cheeky Albatros wandered in and had a crack at me before being swallowed by a wave of camels! 

Later the 3rd PG had a nice little dust-up with a gang of Bosches over the "Fokker Lake" over at Bapaume, with a much more reasonable cross to cockade ratio.

Actually darkness suits me Larner. 9pm utc is 7am for me and that's when my trackir begins to play up. It's one of my projects to correct this but I'm lazy see. So at the moment I can only fly when darkness descends and remains on the great southern continent.

 

BTW (off topic) how do you do the highlighted @catchov thing?

You just type @ followed by the first character of the name you desire. Wait a moment and a short dropdown list should appear. Continue typing the remaining characters for the name you want, you should eventually see the desired person in the list, click their name.

Thanks for the continued hosting of this excellent server, Jasta 5! 😃 Today's action was great! It's so awesome to see the server maxed out at 75 pilots even when I show up late for the Sunday Fly In. We started off with some recon flights, and then I ended up spending the rest of the afternoon going from dogfight to dogfight, reaching a crescendo as I stumbled upon a flight of enemy bandits deep in our territory running organized ground attack missions, complete with top cover and close escort. Truly a sight to behold!

Looking forward to more Sundays over the front! 😎🍻

S! @J5_Baeumer,

 

A very big thanks for hosting each Sunday the Flying Circus Furball...
But I was wondering if the missions could change a little each week-end or even just from the one we are playing since the last few months.
I know that it takes many hours/days to create those kind of maps... but the recons map might be a good one to change if possible.

 

Again, I want to say a big thanks to all mission creators that help having this event online... it's just a question of having maybe more than only two missions in rotation.

 

Cheers,
GenMarkof

I really had fun tonight. About 50 pilots online, flew S.E.5a then swiched to Spad and teamed up with Rummell aka Waggaz. Even though I am still a bit rusty and was a bit buzzed we managed to down 3 huns each. Got killed by the occasional invisible D7 but still I had a blast. For most of the time my mission was running. I saw recons and artyspotting tasks getting completed. Kudos to the Bristol pilots. Felt like ww1 to me. Keep up the good work on the Flugpark J5. It really is the place to be.
