Excellent to hear it will be on for Thursday. I'll plan on livestreaming it and there will be a few IRFC in attendance :)

 

Good to see you back on the forum, Requiem.

 

I've checked your pilot training blog page periodically, but haven't seen any entries since you got your CFI job a couple years ago -- hope things have gone well in the interim.

 

 

Cheers,

Thanks Jim. It's been all good on my end. I was really busy while instructing so didn't have time to do work on the blog. I started training at my airline in January this year and now I fly the CRJ-900 which is a lot of fun! Hard to believe I went from zero flight time to an airline in two years :-) The time went by so fast.

 

As a heads up for the server tonight I'm expecting Bender, Smokin Hole, and possibly Captain Darling to join me so fingers crossed it all works out!

Well those were some pretty unfriendly skies today.
After a decent start, i seemed to find pairs of J30 two-seaters (Hangman/Mein especially) everytime I took off..and sometimes before! I think they killed me 3-4 times. Way too good. S!

Note to self. Don't tackle a flight of 2-seaters flown by good, organised pilots while flying alone.

Second note to self. Don't fly alone!!

Yeah I know those guys. Their faces are on a "most-wanted" poster in every scout pilot's mess hall. I've been downed by them more times than I care to remember lol. :lol:

I had a look at the server monitor a few times during the fly-in. It seemed the servers were pretty full! :)

How did you all think it went?

It was a pretty good time. We had the early Verdun map first and had a few nasty furballs with the bosche. The low level flak was deadly for our two-seater pilots especially. Then we rolled over to the Beaucamp map and had some good fights there as well. I have a few films for you Hotlead.

 

I can also confirm the attendance of one Requiem including a certain =IRFC= tag.

 

I think there were 32 players at one point maybe a few more. I was kinda busy and not keeping good track.

 

S! to all who made it a great night.

That's awesome guys! :D

Just PM me the track files once you get a chance, Hunter. I look forward to reviewing the US103rd's feats of glory!

For anyone else who's curious, you can find flight record files on your PC here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\1C-777\Rise of Flight\data\Tracks

At that location, you'll see 2 types of files: folders and .trk files. I'll need both the folder and the .trk file for each track you want to send me. To send them, just upload them to something like Dropbox or Google Drive, and send me the link to to the files. Then, I'll download the tracks and see about filming parts of them for the video!

I know, we did get the last AI bomber (RE8) inside the last 5 minutes, after they took off from the back aerodrome!!!

At the same, many Allied scout's came to help the last RE8.

 

Very fun time!

 

Cheers,

Gen ;)

Thanks guys, it was fun giving it a go after a couple of years off. It reminded me how much I disliked flying the Nieuports in early war scenarios LOL Next week hopefully more of us will show up! (while praying for a scenario of faster planes and more guns ;))

I had nightmares last night of facing off with Cuban once again over that blasted factory... oh wait... those were real! I think I was outnumbered every time but that didn't stop me from diving on you factory wreckers! :icon_mad: I did feel more like this after it was over though. :icon_e_deadman:

 

And welcome back Requiem. We've never met but I do feel like I know you after watching your videos. Thanks for all that instruction that helped get this newb off the ground some 5 months ago.

Salute all! This Thursday, 30 minutes before the fly-in night, we at JG1 invite all who are interested over to the JG1 server to stress-test our upcoming Flanders in Flames map. That way, we can ensure that we have all the bugs worked out for our official start this Saturday. ;)

 

We will start the stress-test at 7:30pm Central time. Following that, at 8:00pm Central approximately, we will transfer to the Wargrounds server for our usual fun and flying.

JG1_Butzzell seemed to think that the stress test for Flanders in Flames went well. (Thanks to all who participated BTW!)

How did the Wargrounds fly-in go afterwards?

On the road home as I type this. Lookin’ forward to being back!!! :D

Yeah, I'll have to miss this week's unfortunately. Has become something I look forward to.
I expect central to come back strong and not let entente fighters get the airspace control we seemed to have last week

Hey guys! Sorry I couldn’t make the fly in tonight! Real life commitments took precedence. ;) 

 

We will be trying something new this upcoming Thursday. Rather than doing it on Wargrounds, we'll be flying on Cuban's excellent server! If you'd like a fresh experience from the standard Wargrounds maps, this might be your lucky night! :D

 

(Not to bash FourSpeed or Wargrounds of course. We have had some really awesome furballs on Wargrounds! Sometimes though variety is the spice of life. ;)

Hooray for paullmf2 and his statement that we Allied bomber pilots should all fly with escorts.  I have been saying that for a long time.  We, the unsung heroes of the Great Air War, need you fighter pilots to protect us...  Even if Hunter can fly a Bristol as a fighter...  :icon_e_smile:

 

Remember everyone, we are flying Cuban's mission server this coming Thursday evening (11/16/2017).

 

Whether you are a novice or an experienced sim-pilot come and join us for a fun few hours of reliving the glories (and the hazards) of the WWI War in The Air...

There´s a six hour time difference to GMT+1 I think, which means, if they start 8 pm thursday for you it will be 02 in the morning,.....friday.

It's not really for us Europeans.

Maybe the young ones... :icon_e_smile:

Hey guys! Had a great time on Cuban's server tonight! Unfortunately, my virtual pilot died...but a new recruit has taken his place and has already gotten some kills to his record! This was one my my most fun streams to host and had a lot of interaction with viewers. Thanks for watching all! :D

I think I can say a good time was had by all last night on Cuban's server. We had about 30 pilots on at one point. Lots of high patrols and bombing action for all.

 

We will rotate back to Wargrounds next week, as think the current plan is to rotate servers every other week.

Thanks Cuban for the fun last night, Some good battles.

Interesting to watch Hotleads stream, but would be interesting to see someone do one on the Entente side, Maybe a US103 can do one.
