Remembrance Day 11/11/17 18:00 UTC LFAQ Albert Somme

Postby LesterBoffo » Mon Nov 06, 2017 3:27 pm

This year's theme: Two-Seaters, Bombers, and pursuit planes.

Arrive at Albert Bray LFAQ and we'll do a flight down to Nancy Malzeville LFEZ. I hope to have a few new planes debugged and released for this flight. Please update your FG aircraft folder with the present FGMEMBERS Non commercial WWI offerings I'll post new aircraft as they become freed up.

Hopefully the FS-WWI Handley=Page O-400 and a few reworked Helijah Hangar aircraft.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

This should be a nice flight and we're flying planes with better air-speeds, so roughly 90~ 100 knots average.

It should be a technically interesting flight as Nancy Malzeville is on top of a bluff/plateau and has several different approaches.

Albert is steeped in WWI lore in the heart of the Somme valley battlefields and several big memorials and historical places nearby like Corbie where Manfred Von Richthoven was fatally shot down. There's a big French maintained German War dead cemetery and memorial. I may include a few notable present day airfields as waypoints, there is Compiègne and Rheims along the way

I am in. As creature of habit, chances are, I pick the Albatros again though. But you have also that new one Fokker D.VII?

Most Likely I'll be von Richthofen

Badass was Voss' single-handedly fighting 5 SE5as of 56 squadron all at once before someone got lucky. :twisted:

But then there was William Barker who fought with 15 Fokker DVII's on an escort sortie. :ugeek: He was UberBadass!

Yes, you may like it better, of not. :?:

It's pretty zippy, rolls on a dime and climbs really fast. You know that the Alb DIII and DVa both served well into 1918?

I know, when the war ended, there were some of them still standing on airstrips.
