Olham made it safe and sound with a broken wing

Recommended Posts

Just had a dogfight with those Nupe 17 Lewis from RFC-1 again.

Being THAT close behind one, he dives away. Me, I went after him (hearing Pol say in the back

of my mind: there, he's doing it again!). Pulling out of his dive, I got him! But - cracks - my right

wingtip was suddenly missing.

The good was: it broke off AFTER the V-strut, without ripping away the aileron cables.

That gave me the chance to land my damaged craft half a mile behind our lines, near an armycamp.

 

Was it by chance, or did you devs change it a little for Olham's (and every Albatros pilot's) sake?

If so: a big fat THANK YOU!

I know they had breaking wings; but as some pilots still made it home, I think it's fairer this way.

 

Edit/PS: oh, by the way - my tank ran dry in mid air, as you can see!

Tch - you might be right, CJ - keep forgetting to check actual flight distance... Lol!

Oh some guys have all the luck!

 

Just lost my best pilot, Johann Stachen , last night - 12.75 hours

Got into a scrap with some Se's across the lines, outnumbered 6:3

Against my new strategy, but we were escorting Hannovers and the twits flew right over tham

 

B & Z'd them but rolling off the 3rd pullout, Crr-rack! somethin nailed me

Broke off right at the wing root - BALLS!!

Managed to get some semblance of control but it kicked me to the OFF Manager

"Landed behind enemy lines. Captured for the Duration"

Didnt even get a chance to set her down

Tch - the best men... Sorry for you, Duce!

What did you fly? With an Albatros DIII, you can turn fight with S.E.5s - that BnZ shows your rear to them too often.

Yes, the manager does that sometimes, but only, when the craft becomes unflyable - so you would have crashed

with it anyway.

Those two seater crews are really following their orders spott on, and if they had to fly into a cloud of Camels.

Wish you more luck with the next one - we keep growing that way!
