The Thursday Night Fly-In

Recommended Posts

Getting "File Transfer Error #10017"  this requires the mission to be opened and re-saved but delete the .list first.

I had a problem on the weekend with our server after the update.  There was no notice in the notes and it took hours of trial and error.  It was eventually fixed by not allowing Tacview and checking the "External" checkbox beside server IP but leaving it blank.

Off to a bumpy start, but we still had a good turnout for the thursday fly-in at the end of it! We also got some great pics of the 3rd P.G's line-up...

Last minute update: We're flying on JG1 FC server starting now. Sorry for the confusion, all! 


May I ask: does that server have any (WWI) AI planes?

Well, best laid plans and all that..hopefully can get the 2 sessions going next week.

 

The 3rd PG had its best turnout yet, with most of the FNGs performing real well and the Major returning in good form. 9 of us in total. Great to see.

 

We ran into a few solitary D7fs and a bunch of AI CL2s  on our side, but there seemed plenty of Pfalz, Albs and D7Fs hun-side. The 103rd had high cover role today, so there was a lot of watching the others shoot stuff down(!) but at some point in a scrap there's usually a need to tear down and clear someone's tail of an uppety D7. Always a rush!

 

Look forward to next week and hopefully that extended session with the Euro window.

Very neat I'm sure and just what a low-flying intruder wants to see; one burst and you're all gone.  Work on your dispersal.

Server would not allow me to join EU time, so flew WW2 with a squad mate on Combat Box instead.

 

Thanks for trying.  Better luck next week.

 

Happy landings,

Yeah, hopefully it all goes smoother. We're keen to see some No. 56 S.E.5as tearing up the Hun!

Right lets try the dual window for European and US flyers again!

 

This Thursday Night Fly-In is going to run on the JASTA 5 FLUGPARK server, and will be running during the following time frames:

EU time: 8PM - 12AM GMT

US time: 8PM - 12AM Eastern Time

 

Stats server is here http://stats.jasta5.org:8000/en/

 

Jasta5 have kindly provided some comms channels on their discord, free for use by all.  Flugpark Discord: https://discord.gg/h8MRmyN

 

Our 3rd PG livestream should be up by 8:30pm Eastern https://www.youtube.com/user/PaulLMF but am hoping to join the 56Sq SE5as towards the end of the Euro window and then SPADs with the USAS later. So stream might start early.

Really looking forward to it!

As a first go the 2 windows went ok. In total 4 maps were used, varying from a low of 24 pilots/map to a high of 31. So for 8hrs its pretty solid though numbers dropped right down and there wasn't much fighting during that in-between window phase. I didn't manage to find any SE5as flying when i got on just after 11pm GMT, so Spads it was.

 

Hopefully we can get a few more pilots on during the holiday season, especially after 1030pm GMT. 

 

For us this week seemed dominated by high D7fs. Lots of cat n mouse, some of which ended well and others without result. We were shocked at one point, to find a high CL2 doing recon. We attacked somewhat reluctantly, given how long it must've taken to get up there. The map roll saved him but we did find another later. This one had brought escorts however, and it was a proper fight to try get stop those pictures getting back.

Ok, enough with the eating, drinking, dancing or whatever you've been doing - lets get this war back on track!

 

The Thursday Night Fly-In will pick up again this week on January 2nd at the JASTA 5 FLUGPARK server, during the following time frames:

EU time: 8PM - 12AM GMT

US time: 8PM - 12AM Eastern Time

 

It'd be great to see as many squadrons represented as possible, but of course is open to all.

Good fun tonight on the first map - all went well! 

It all turned a bit sour on the second map though, when we didn't have enough SPADs to go around. Ended up taking an S.E.5a - couldn't hit the broadside of a barn and it felt like every hun bullet went straight into my cockpit....

....supply interruptions on your side in the war? 

 

(request was previously made; I will reconnect with personnel around the resupply factors; .)

It would seem so! Some extra SPADs would be greatly appreciated...I love everything about the S.E. except flying it, it seems to be cursed for me!

They have been send out to the frontline two weeks ago. I don't know where they might be hanging out. Maybe they got stuck between all those Christmas presents? Who knows....

Le Monde,  Paris, 1er, Mai, 1917

 

 

 

 

Deperdussin factory closed!

 

Reports of protest by French airplane workers are true.  

 

These dedicated people work hard to produce the exceptional SPAD airplanes. Their leader Jean Delequis explains. "This is the best airplane. There are none better. They are for France. They are for the men of France to use to kill the Boche. They should not go to the Americans. Each plane that is sold to the Americans deprives a Frenchman of the best airplane available. These Americans wish to steal the glory that belongs to France. No more planes till they promise NOT to sell to the Americans!"

 

He speaks the truth. These late comer Americans are here to steal the Glory of France. Citizens, rise up in protest of the injustice!

 

No SPADs for the Americans!  Vive La France!

Is there a Discord or Team Speak for allied that allows in non-squad pilots? I asked this the other night, but was told by someone not to bother because people are using squad-only channels. It's a bit of a disadvantage if you're new to FC and others are on comms but you're not.

Yeah, guys are using SQUAD channels, but not SQUAD ONLY ;) J5, 3rd PG teamspeak, etc. etc. are all open

Great to get back into it this week and awesome to see so many Squadrons represented strongly and good numbers overall. I think we noted several from each of J5, WW, SCG, J30, No. 20, JG1 and US 3rd PG.

Included in that lot was the return of specialist gunner J30_Mein...as if attacking 2-seaters wasn't butt-clenching enough already!

 

Our lot did ok. A bit rusty and messy at times but that's expected after a break. The new guys performed really well too and got into the thick of it a few times.

 

Found a good mix of Huns, low CL2s attacking mission targets in the back field, higher lone D7f hunters, an Alb and Pfalz on patrol in the clouds over the mud, and a large scrap with a bunch of Greentails at one point. But i think the one scrap that stands out was the Pfalz piloted by SCG_Sinerox i think. I never got there in time to help, but he shot up 2 of our guys, plus a Bristol who was flying with us, then put holes in 2 more of our Spads before finally getting shotdown. S! to him, though perhaps the level of cursing on comms is a better mark of respect!

 

 

Here's a link to the stream replay. Timestamps done.

Greetings Gents,

 

This Thursday Jan 9th we'll be flying on the FC JG1 Server during the following time frames:

EU time: 8PM - 12AM GMT

US time: 8PM - 12AM Eastern Time

 

Stats Server is here http://stats.jg1.org:8000/en/ 

 

The JG1 server often has moving frontline maps, so it's critical to keep the 2-seaters and army from over-running your front airfields. Plus there's plenty of opportunity for combined scout/2-seater missions.

 

EDIT: I notice there's a new map on FC JG1 too. Tank Battle In The Mud. That should focus activities a bit!

 

All welcome as usual.

TeamSpeak and Discord channels can be found in this thread - 3PG TS is us103.enjinvoice.com

 

A 3rd Pursuit Group livestream should be up by 8:30pm Eastern https://www.youtube.com/user/PaulLMF

 

See you all there!
