#29083 Memorable Moments in ROF: The Phantom Bomber!

Posted by HotleadColdfeet on 13 March 2017 - 05:07 AM

During the last minutes of Saturday's Flanders in Flames mission, a train needed to be destroyed. It seemed like any other mission...until a horde of enemy planes showed up to guard it! Who can save us? Perhaps this is a job for the Phantom Bomber! 


Enjoy!  :D

#24847 One of the last 3 Fokker D VII with its original fabric...

Posted by GenMarkof007 on 30 August 2016 - 11:14 PM

My 1 day trip to the Brome County Historical Society in the Eastern Townships...


After Mause told me to go and see at Knowlton one of three Fokker D VII in the world with its original fabric (not a replica), another in Munich and one at Bourget (France).

It's my pleasure to show some of the pictures I took today of this great WW1 plane.

This Fokker D VII (FOK D VII (ALB) 6810/18) was shipped from Camp Borgen, Angus Ontario on May 27, 1920 to Knowlton at a cost of $112.50.




















It was said that this plane was sent in 1918 to the Jagdgeschwader 1 (JG 1)!

But was not confirm by anyone at the BCHS.



Gen ;)

#26815 The Hunt for the Red Eagle Continues!

Posted by J2_Trupobaw on 22 November 2016 - 03:26 PM

That was a great movie, it really shows what teamwork in RoF on TS looks like. If I were to show someone what am I doing with my evenigs, I would probably choose this movie now. Or show someone how to fly a Spad in knifefight.

(And I must make sure Marx, Drookasi and Mr Tree - trio of my Kameraden who starred as villains in 10th  minute ;) - watch it as well.)

#22504 Flying Prom 2016

Posted by Lee on 13 June 2016 - 01:00 AM

Here are a few shots from the Military Aviation Museum’s 2016 “Flying Prom.”


Music provided by Virginia Beach’s symphony orchestra, Symphonicity.  Aircraft are from the museum’s collection.  I only took still photos, so no music.  You really had to be there.


Program includes music with appropriate aircraft flying.  For example, the de Havilland Mosquito flew to the “633 Squadron” theme.  The Fokker Dr.1s,  D.VII and Albatros D.Va flew to the suite from “The Red Baron.”  The Wildcat and Aichi “Val” flew to the “War & Tennessee” Suite from “Pearl Harbor.”  And of course the Hurricane, Spitfire and Bf 109 flew to the suit from “Battle of Britain.”


The flying program ended at intermission, but then much more music was played.  “Stars & Stripes Forever” was the last piece kicking off the fireworks display.

#26949 My flight in a PT-17

Posted by Somnus on 29 November 2016 - 01:19 AM

Today I got the opportunity to take an amazing flight in a PT-17 thanks to Mike at www.wingsovergreenvillesc.com Where I live is quite literally right up against the fence of the Greenville Downtown Airport so thanks to some birthday cash I was finally able to be passenger instead of just observer of this flight.


It's billed as a sightseeing tour, but I think I was more interested in watching the gauges and how the plane reacted in flight. It was an overcast and cold day today, but this didn't make any difference to me! 


It was also windy, and it was very interesting to see and feel the plane skidding around against the wind. I mentioned to the pilot (Mike) that I was an avid sim pilot (mentioning JG1 of course!) and at one point in the flight he actually let me take control of the plane, flying it level for a bit, then banking into left and right turns. Feeling the wind buffeting the plane, and the force feedback of the stick filled in a sorely missing bit of digital flight experience. 


He even pulled a wing-over, and feeling the positive and negative G's, and hearing the engine roar as he fed it more throttle during the climb was an amazing experience. 


I went to take a final picture of us coming down to land, but alas, my phone had died. Enjoy the pictures!

#26697 N.11 vs Eindecker fight

Posted by Barton on 17 November 2016 - 02:29 PM

An excellent fight between two very good pilots high over the German trenches!



This fight happened some time ago and I happened across the recording last night and wondered why I hadn't yet shared it, so here it is!

Finally got ShadowPlay to work again by reverting to an earlier version of GeForce Experience, so I hope to be able to continue the Hunt for the Red Eagle series with the next FIF mission.

I'd also like to thank everyone for their support in making these videos.

#26105 A sad day for all of us!

Posted by Klaiber on 27 October 2016 - 02:06 PM

Hi All,


Rotermann has created a video of BH_Osten's online memorial, which was held on 15 October 2016.


Unfortunately, there is no recording of the eulogies spoken on TeamSpeak.  But I think the video clearly shows how much Osten meant to a lot of us here.


RIP Scott.  You are missed.

Or at least an attempted escort.  Got engaged as lone escort and separated from the recon.  Tried like hell to save him, but there was only so much I could do.  Thankfully I got out of there alive, though not without fighting for it.

#18032 FiF XXIII

Posted by Butzzell on 16 November 2015 - 05:43 PM

S! All



Looking at a time line for this next FiF.


Holidays are fast approaching. Superbowl will be here before you know it. This will put us on hold for a few weeks


At present we have a January start date.  Wen Jan 6 and Sat Jan 9 for dry run,   Wen Jan 13,  Sat Jan 16 for first session.


We will be using the Channel map and some of the faster planes.  The new missions from the preview will be included. That will give us 12 objectives per side.




1917, the war has been going badly for the Central countries. The Kaiser abdicates and new leadership is needed. An enterprising industrialist steps up to take over. Lex Luther, owner of LexCorp, seizes the opportunity. He launches a bold plan and invades England. Kent is captured. LexCorp forces are marching on Clark. The Planet faces a daily peril from the never ending onslaught. All is not lost. General Malcom Lois rallies the British forces for a counter attack.   


Can Lois rescue Clark and save the Planet? Will Kent be free?  Tune in to FiF XXIII to see what happens.



In the mean time we have some missions we can run that are a little bit different.


These are not FiF missions. They are a dynamic scenario where land is captured. They are the result of a concept proposed by JG1_Shulte_J10, call sign Moxie. They bear his call sign as tribute.



Here is how they work. Each team has a middle area. At first this is the only area that shows on the map. In that area are four bomber targets and one recon target. The targets are divided into two north and two south. When the two targets in the south are destroyed, a new area appears in the North. There is a new air base and two new targets. The same thing happens when the two Northern targets are hit, a new area appears in the south. When the four targets in the center are destroyed, the airbase is captured and switches sides. The same thing happens when the new targets in the North and South expansion areas are destroyed. The airbase switch sides 30 seconds after the targets are destroyed.


Final victory is achieved by destroying the enemy HQ. To get the HQ to light up as a target , you have to have destroyed all other targets and completed the recon. The recon can be done at any time in the session. It does not give any secondary target like in FiF. It merely puts an X in the recon area to show it has been done.


We will offer these as just for fun open missions at the usual FiF times.


These are some maps to show how targets are designated and how the expansion looks.
