I had a lot of fun this evening on Liberator's "Race Against Death" event. Thanks for hosting it Lib! icon_e_salute.gifHere is the archived Twitch stream:

Might be a bit tedious to watch for some, as I had to crash several times before I even reached the airfield! If you want to skip to the really dicey part, skip to the end at about 1 hour and 44 mins. Attempting to land in 15 meter/second wind, with snow, in near-IFR conditions. One of the most tense experiences in my ROF career! icon_eek.gif

"What are we transporting that's so valuable, anyway?"

 

Seriously, HotLead? Bier, of course! The Deutsches Heer  would grind to a halt without it. I thought that's why you took a Handley Page: payload capacity!
