Salute gentlemen!  This week's Sunday Vintage Mission will see us in the La Vesle River region of France, NW of Reims - Summer 1917.
This a bomber offensive map, no recons necessary to activate targets, just full ahead and blow up the strategic targets on the map.
Heavy bombers will have to destroy enemy depots to prepare for the upcoming offensive. The more targets they can destroy, the better they will be prepared for the following battle. The first side that destroys all targets will have won this "bomber offensive"

We have run this mission before with no bugs or glitches (touching wood), and we are hoping to stress test the new server so all pilots are encouraged to dust off their flying kit, visit the mess for a bit of liquid breakfast and take to the skies over France to test their meddle.  
We saw some fierce action in this sector last go around, and Entente was victorious. Rumor has it Richthofen's Circus has recently been sighted by some of the French escadrilles, with terrible results.  Let's see what happens this Sunday! Good luck all, see you in the air!

Also, the stats are back up, due entirely to the tireless efforts of J2_SteveF!  Go to:   http://vintage-missions.netand register if you care to track your stats on Vintage Mission Sundays!

Greetings gentlemen, Salute!

This week's Sunday Vintage Mission will see us in the region of Vendin, October 1917.

The situation is as follows... The German army is using canal barges to get their supplies to the lines. This makes the transfer points a priority target for the Royal Flying Corps.  RFC 46 squadron, which is just converting from Pups to Camels, are ordered to attack every ship between Don and Vendin. as well as trucks just behind the lines. 59 Sqn, flying the RE.8, has been ordered to destroy the transfer points, a fuel depot and train station, in Don and Vendin. RFC 40 Sqn with Se5as and RFC 11 with Bristols, will provide top cover.

Jasta 12 and 18 are stationed nearby and will be protecting their airspace in their Albatros DVa, Pfalz DIIIa and a handful of the new Fokker Dr1 scouts.The German Flieger Abteiling has been assigned various objectives: Photo recon objectives and two tactical ground targets; enemy artillery and vehicles east of Bethune.

Important: completing any of these objectives will unlock new Camels or Fokker Dr1s.

To complete the recon objective: Take a plane labeled "Recon", load a camera and fly to the objective area. The camera icon will pop up when over the target.

Wind is moderate, blowing from the North East, 4 - 5  m/s. Cloud base at 1250m. Some turbulance at lower altitudes.

Good luck all pilots, see you in the air!
