Early or on time depending on your perspective. Was intented to start at 2pm Rat time, but because of confusion between CST and CDT, I'm sure quite a few showed up for a 3pm start.

Did the event start earlier than announced?

Yea, it started at 7pm GMT.

Was fun! I think I shot down a Spitfire, but not sure. My house power went out just before the end, so I couldn't check my stats. Guess I need to buy a generator to keep my PC running during these Realism Events. :D

Thats my Fault due to My Stupidity on Time Zones. i didn't even think about Daylight Savings time messing up Rat HQ time and GMT Time. this wil be Corrected in the Future.

My apologies for not showing up that day... I had fallen down a hill that day when I went for a walk in the quarry behind my house, and I hurt my back, effectively rendering me bed/couch-ridden. So, I'm sorry for reserving a slot and not showing up. I promise I would have if I had been able to move hehe...

Sounds like it was a blast! I wish I didn't miss out.

S!

OK My AAR:

About 1 min after the BG line was lit, took off S-Hert in G with 2 more G's and 2x 190, climbed to 7+ Km and headed southwest, then later south.

With EWS now reporting positions, we make course adjustments to SE and soon spot a high p38 escort which I made a couple of intercept moves before the dived down to what I think is the high group, already being attacked by 2x 09's, which the 38 went after.

I passed though the group, taking shots at 2 DB, takeing the engine off one and doing now noticeable damage to another. I did a loop and came at another who went into evasive, and started diving after him.

Now during my first pass tough the group some golden BB hit my engine causing it to loose manifold pressure, so I had very little power from the engine, something that has not happened to me in a VERY long time, so it took me a little to realize this. I made a beeline to Wilts, respawned, and took off in time to try and help Vodkaace in 190 with Surly in 38 on his 6.

Despite managing a few good defection hits causing both engine to smoke profusely, Vodkace was shot down, and me and Surly8 was in a treetop turn fight over uneven terrain. That was when a Surly Tree clipped my wing and I spun in.

I had no kills despite hitting 2x DB and a P38 with 30mm.

..I think you may have shot my right engine...it wasn't flaming but it was dead. I was a bit behind from the rest of the group. And my tg might have hit you. Then I dived down.

Anyway, how were you able to respawned...wasn't the server 'locked' ?

No, the server wasn't locked - at some point there was a message from Jammy saying that if you died to 'stay dead' and not respawn.

Very sorry to hear that. As always, real life comes before virtual life!

I sincerely hope the situation with your father works out as well as possible.

That was me admiral. Got the kill on you at least but dunno if i was that particular 109F though i think one of them did manage to plink me with TG, its all a bit muddled in my head now, was very fast.

I nailed 3 DB7s in total and damaged a 4th. I flirted with the escorts at about 8k but didnt commit until 5minutes later. Me Pusicato and Three were the first 109s to make contact with your high formation.

Good event and S! to all tough the Allies really did need more escorts to be honest. Would have been an insane fight with another 10 or so escorts.

Yeup, the mission allowed for RTB, but did not specifically say no re-spawn. I did not die, made a good wheels down landing.

admiral1, I do not think it was you. I got a DB in near lead of the high group.

we take off from eidhoven and move down , cheking radar i marked a intercept line for my group.

I sended a 190 , more fast , in advance to discover the bombers, i suspected maybe enemy fighters could try to atack us before we reach bombers and i didnt want it.

I ordered my group to reach 7k, normally allied bombers go at 6k, and i wanted some velocity advantage to escape from escorts.

Indeed they appeare under us, and with the energy advantage of 1k mt i gave orders to my group to atack bombers.

I launched my 190G against bomber leader ...

I entered enemy formation just in the middle. Advancing bombers while i focus in bomber leader. My machines guns began to launch bullets.. 1 touch, 2 , 3 ,4 havoc (i try remember) began evasive manuevers, i fllow him , i crossed another havoc fire line and see some bullets passing very near my cockpit , but i didnt let havoc escape from me, i kept firing and kill credit gave me. Inmediatly i pull command and my 109G jump to the sky reaching inmediatly 500 mt about enemy bomber formation.

At this moment the escort fighter reach us and my Teamspeak began to hear mates being down by enemy fighters. Was a stressed moment, i heared a man saying p39 in his tail, i didnt know waht to do , and after 1 second i decided i must save my friend and forget bombers.

At this moment i pulled back and try to intercept my mate. But i couldnt reach him because p39 down him.

After this , and knowing im not a good pilot and maybe p39 was better than me, i try to reach another time bomber formation.

I reach another havoc and launch all ammo i had, two engines smoking and plane trying to escape to the deck, at this moment wihtout ammo, p39 reach my tail and i tried to escape to the deck. Seems p39 prefered brake his atack and kept near the bombers.

While i escape and reach our lines.

My engine begins to do a noise, it is overheat, i forget in the battle chaos look the temperature, but well no poblem i reach axis city and landing near ab.

for me great event, great idea, and gain TONS AND TONS OF fun.
