7 February 1915

Varying stages of fog and rain are still around, but everything is light enough today that everybody got a good flight in.

Pontfaverger
Odis Först writes: "0815: Thirteen days since we last flew. Not knowing what tomorrow will be like, they sent us up in groups to make sure we all got flying time in. I was fourth man in a scouting mission that included Ltns Soltau, Müller, and Boelcke. 1 hour 35 minutes."

Saint-Omer
Dugan Vystavel writes: "0904: Artillery mission. Lts Richards and Ackart leading. Myself with Lt Nash and Sgt Crowe and Capt Henry in support. 1 hour 51 minutes."

Gonneham
Corrigan Aujla writes: "1002: Bombing mission against a railyard with Lt Cruikshank and Robbie Reinard. 1 hour 19 minutes."

Wilhelmshaven
Lennart Altendorf writes: "1003: Hptm Podalski led his three students on a long flight around the area. 1 hour 45 minutes."

Saint-Pol-Sur-Mer
Filimor Hance writes: "1003: First hunting mission. Two of us patrolled near Passchendaele looking for enemy planes on recon missions. My partner was Caporal Garros. He's something of a legend having been the first man to fly non-stop across the Mediterranean Sea. Unfortunately we didn't find any enemy machines. 1 hour 35 minutes.

Verdun
Noel Kay writes: "1034: Fog has lessened a little. First flight in two weeks. Long deep penetration scouting mission up around the Sedan area. 3 hours 13 minutes."

Flanders is rained out again, but surprisingly Verdun has its second day in a row of no fog!

Verdun
Noel Kay writes: "0815: Led a flight of four planes on a scouting mission across the lines from Reims. 1 hour 59 minutes."

Pontfaverger
Odis Först writes: "1004: Scouting flight over Somme-Vesle. Lots of flak. 1 hour 29 minutes."

Wilhelmshaven
Lennart Altendorf writes: "1202: Another long flight so we could get used to being over water. We travelled northeast across the Jade to Cuxhaven, south to Bremerhaven, then back west to our field. 1 hour 55 minutes."

The front is yet again unflyable. Everybody waits and wonders what will happen next.

The Front is still closed down, but at Wilhelmshaven the sky is clear enough for the fledglings to fly.
Lennart Altendorf writes: "1445: Flew southeast to Varel, then south to Oldenburg, east to Bremen, then back to Sande and home. Arrived just after night. Got some practice landing in the dark. 2 hours 9 minutes."

The Front is still rained out, but the rearward training school at Wilhelmshaven is flying again.
Lennart Altendorf writes: "0809: Long flight up to Minsener Oog, then down to Witmund, southwest to Aurich, south to Westoverledingen, then north-northwest back to Sande. Once the weather is clear in Flanders we will be moving to our new field at Bertincourt. 2 hours 18 minutes."

Nothing much has changed, except that even the rear area at Wilhelmshaven is being rained on again.

And the weather sets in again. Sometimes it feels like this winter will never end.

Winter continues another day.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. On Thursday my computer quit working. After not being able to fix it myself I took it to an expert. It truns out that the 240GB SSD I have just for the OS just up and died. I only got it back yesterday. Today I loaded up WOFF and everything works fine, but my master logbook - the one I put together myself - is lost. I could recreate my careers if I had that to work from, but I don't. I have to start over from scratch, which I not only can but I think it will be fun. The problem is that it will no longer be synchronized to the correct dates, which for somebody like me is tremendously frustrating.

I'm not sure yet how I'm going to handle it. Start over with the same characters? They're still in WOFF, which was stored in it's own drive? Chuch everything out and truly start from scratch with all new pilots? Either way I'd feel silly posting it here with the wrong dates and all. I'll thing of something, but I'm not sure yet what I want to do.
