Happy New Year gentlemen! We'll be back in action this Thursday at 8pm Central US time on Cuban's server! Let's start the new year off with a bang, shall we? :D

We spent a lot of time up high last mission. We were able to get our Pfalzes up to about 6k...but this did not satisfy JG1_Vikner, however. He proceeded to shoot for the moon...and clawed his way all the way up to a historic 8 kilometers high. O_o 

 

Not a whole lot of engagements that night, but good teamwork and excellent formation flying to all involved! default_smile.gif

 

After this, a few of us decamped to Flying Circus where I ended my evening with a twisting, turning dogfight in my SPAD against a gallant Pfalz D.IIIa. I haven't had that much fun in a SPAD in a long time! 

 

I'll see you all on Wargrounds next Thursday! default_salute.gif

Last night, JG1 decided to switch things up to keep it fresh. The previous Thursday, we were up at 6k. This Thursday, we were down in the weeds in our bombers, pushing the objectives! We had a very successful night on the first map, turning it around in very quick fashion - not to mention scoring some air kills along the way! The next map was Metz. Traditionally, the Huns are supposed to be relegated to stooging around their own lines to stave off the inevitable bombing offensive from the Allies. Well, we decided that we'd had enough of that. It was time to take the fight to the enemy!  B)  Thus, we lifted off in our trusty Rolands and Halberstadts and bombed out their airfields. Not in a long time have the Allied hangars burned in Metz as they did that night! Although the casualties for us were high, we managed to shut down both of their airfields (although not simultaneously as we had hoped). 

 

After all this, we decamped to Flying Circus for some fun dogfight action on the JG1 server. Really looking forward to the future of this title! 

 

All in all, it was a fun night! Big salute to all who came out and filled the skies! We'll catch you next week on Cuban's server! :)
