    This is a FULL mission, on the ground, LW fly to the target in real time (no time hyper speed up!), survive, drop, return.

    Meanwhile the RAF will try and stop the LW.

    Already have some 40+ players sign up, hopefully get 60+ on the day.

    The event was smashing!

    We had about 80 players join in and keep the memory of the historic event alive!
    It went to well the first time, most of the players wanted to do it again, which we did 3 hours later!

    The plan has the LW outnumber the RAF in escorts, and 19 He-111's on top of that. Almost the 3 to 1 odds the RAF faced. The mix of fighters on both sides where as equal as I could research out.
    The results of both flights was very similar to the real BoB, LW bombers did hit targets, but suffered more casualties then the RAF. Granted this was a virtual game, it is interesting with he similarities.


    Folkstone was the launch sight of all the Hurricane I's and 2 Blen I's (Spitfire Ia launched from Eastchurch)

    The LW formed up in Vlissingen and Cambrai.

    First casualties (I am flying He-111, was damaged by Spitfire, engines smoking)

    Later on a Hurricane took off my wing

    In the second mission, once again I was in big trouble
