Nice record keeping. I have an old copy of OFF (from years before the team made WOFF) and even then it was an excellent successor to classic games like Red Baron 3d.

I usually fly campaigns late in the war, so I can jump into action flying a high-powered fighter like the SE5a, Camel, or Fokker DVII, but to each his own! I imagine flying in 1914 can still be fun.

My campaigns usually end with me crashing my Sopwith Camel due to its handling characteristics - the Camel is as deadly to me as German fighters!

It's funny - even with Silent Hunter I've sort of had enough of "jumping into the action". I just like flying around, and I prefer doing it in a Caudron G.4 to a Cessna 172. I figure the war will come to me soon enough.

15 November 1914

Yet another rainstorm sweeps across the Flanders front, grounding everything.

Down at Verdun the story is much the same, except that the cause is the perennial fog returning again.

The rain and fog continue as everyone waits for a chance to fly again. With winter here it that chance does not appear to be good.

Still the bad weather goes on. Soldiers are fighting in ankle-deep mud and aeroplanes can't take off in those conditions.

Sorry I haven't posted in four days. I had my first cataract surgery and I'm still not fully healed.

Not that it matters. As of November 21 1914 it's still raining everywhere.

No need to be sorry Steve, take good care of yourself, and follow doctors orders, you don't want to mess up the surgery and make it worse.

22 November 1914

The sun has come out over Flanders, and the pilots in that area are once more flying their usual patrols. Nothing exciting is happening, though, and everything is routine.

North of Verdun the Germans are still locked in fog.

24 November 1914

The sun comes out, kinda sorta, and all too briefly, but the Flanders crowd are able to get into the air one more time.

Gonneham
Corrigan Aujla writes: "0801 Transferred to Gonneham. 50 minutes." (from Saint-Omer)

Saint-Pol-Sur-Mer
Filimor Hance writes: "1045: Overcast skies. Heavy gusts over patrol area. Wondered a coupld of times whether we were going to make it back home. Make it we did, however, and landed in drizzling rain. 1 hour 24 minutes."

Saint-Pol-Sur-Ternoise
Noel Kay writes: "1150: Took off into a light rain shower. Normal patrol. Hit by machine-gun fire over Arras. Minor damage only. 1 hour 6 minutes."

Gonneham
Ries Meismer writes: "1530: Followed No 3 Sqdn to Gonneham. 36 minutes." (from Saint-Omer Extension)

Meanwhile at Pontfaverger FFA 13 is still grounded by fog.
