CA-WW1 - the French and the Yanks

Today, 02:50:49 PM

Posted by 33LIMA in Mission Reports
The other nationalities in Wings Over Flanders Fields Part 1 - the French air service   I can't do a biography-based mission report for the US and French sides as I only have memoirs by British and German pilots. But for the sake of completeness, I'm going to do a separate pair of  mission reports in Wings Over Flanders Fields, one flying for the Aéronautique Militaire, the other for the US Army Air Service. First up, it's the French service, flying the little Nieuport 11, aptly nicknamed the bébé (baby). The planeOddly enough, pre-war Nieuport designs were monoplanes. The...

Desert Storm - Mission 09 - High...

Today, 07:03:30 AM

 One of the major events that occurred late in the war was the near total destruction of Iraqi forces retreating from Kuwait. The carnage on the "Highway of Death" is cited as one of the primary reasons the war was soon brought to a close because the Coalition thought international support would waiver with continued decimation of the Iraqi Army. Senior military leaders agree that it was important to destroy Saddam's retreating military hardware. Later investigation would show only a quarter or less of the vehicles were military, however the others were trucks and vehicles stuffed with...

CA-WW1 - Wings of War

21 April 2014

Posted by 33LIMA in Mission Reports
Flying the famous Fokker D VII in another WOFF campaign mission inspired by a World War One classic!  The man and the book  I believe Rudolph Stark's 'Wings of War' was first published, in English at any rate, in 1933. It was translated by Claude W Sykes, described by Norman Franks as 'among the better aviation writers of the period' in his introduction to a recent reprint of Sykes's 'German War Birds', written under the pen-name 'Vigilant' and one of my favourite WW1 air war books from my younger days. 'Wings of War' starts during 1917 with Stark a two-seater pilot, yearning...

CA-WW1 - No Parachute

19 April 2014

Posted by 33LIMA in Mission Reports
Bringing Arthur Gould Lee's classic WW1 book to life with Wings Over Flanders Fields!  The man and the book'Thursday, January 3rd. Ferrie has been killed. He led his patrol out this afternoon, had a scrap, came back leading the others, then as they were flying along quite normally in formation, his right wing suddenly folded back, then the other, and the wreck plunged vertically down. A bullet must have gone through the main spar during the fight. The others went after him and steered close to him in vertical dives. They could see him, struggling to get clear of his harness, then ha...

CA-WW1 - Winged Warfare

18 April 2014

Posted by 33LIMA in Mission Reports
Recreating the career of Canada's most famous ace in Wings Over Flanders Fields!    The man and the book  'I dived at him from the side, firing as I came...I pulled my machine out of its dive just in time to pass about 5 feet over the enemy. I could see the observer evidently had been hit and had stopped firing. Otherwise the Hun machine seemed perfectly all right. But just after I passed I looked back over my shoulder and saw it burst into flames. A second later it fell a burning mass, leaving a long trail of smoke behind as it disappeared through the clouds. I thought for a...
