    Hello everyone! As you all know, WW1 aviation has long fascinated me. I believe the story of WW1 (and even more specifically, WW1 aviators) tends to be overshadowed by WW2 and doesn't get as much press as it deserves. I also enjoy reading/writing and now that I no longer have to write college papers (woo hoo! 😁), I occasionally get the itch to research something and write about it. That being the case, I present to you, "Climbing Higher" - my personal blog on all things WW1 aviation! Every so often, when I have the inclination and free time, I'll be posting articles about WW1 aviation to my personal blog (linked below): https://rookieace.wixsite.com/climbinghigher My first post is a book review of a rarer WW1 aviation memoir: "A German Airman Remembers" by Hans Schröder. To see my thoughts on this unique read, just click on the link below! https://rookieace.wixsite.com/climbinghigher/post/a-german-airman-remembers-book-review Subsequent posts: (Nov 15, 2020) Do or Die: No Parachute High in the Sky

    Looking forward to this Cole! (since it's a scholarly effort, I thought it appropriate to address you by your given name). BTW... we used to do this in grad school... I had no idea that is was such an old tradition... Then when the victim bent his head back to receive the coin, all the conspirators poured the contents of beer and wine bottles into the funnel."

    S! All We have done our first two sessions. For our next two sessions we switch sides. Red team will be Central and Blue team will be Entente. That will be the end of Phase A. For Phase B we will advance the plane set and do four more sessions. A glitch was found in one of the Central Arty Spot Secondary. The vehicle unit at Bip was not spawning. Error found and corrected. Regarding flying outside of the area marked on the map: You can fly anywhere you want to go. There are no rules on this. It can be very dangerous. The map area shows the borders of where you will find targets. Inside this area flak AI is set to low. Outside this area flak AI is set to high and is very deadly.

    Today is a sad day in aviation - the classic "whomp, whomp, whomp" of two-bladed Cobras is no more, the Marine Corps retired the AH-1W today. https://news.bellflight.com/en-US/192399-united-states-marines-retire-bell-ah-1w-after-34-years-of-service

    What are you guys listening to?

    One of the tightest Rhythm sections and most stacked woodwinds sections you're ever going to hear in a big band ever. Phil Collins big band is still around even these days but unfortunately a lot of the great old Cats like George Duke are dead or dying/can't play anymore.
