etc.

As for me:

I was command of the run heading to target from south while my kamarad teh Dog took north.

We where pounced on by a hornets nest of Hurricanes, our escorts screaming though the radio of contact reports, but they did not have much organization.

One Hurrie locked onto my wingman, D099 and made him smoke hard before he broke off.

Another pair followed suite and set him on fire.

I was next on their list.

One of the two pressed hard and made my airplane a flying sieve, but he was too aggressive and collided into me, instantly disintegrating. The other broke off as the 109's was not going to let him have the chance to take a shot. My crew cheered!

Badly damaged, I ordered the bombardier to drop 4 bombs, rightened the wounded 111, and pressed on despite the RAF buzzing around. The thought of beating a hasty retreat was vanquished when no more sightings of RAF was seen, so I changed targets to secondary target Canterbury and tried the best I can to righten the 111 to target (the north group saw me below them wondered what crazy dolt it was flying at 4200m). It was a battle all the way to keep my bomber steady, and in the end my bombs did not hit the factory, but the though of a Knights Cross pushed my ambition.

Delivery made, I turned home and had an uneventful trip to the nearest friendly base at Calais.

Luftwaffe command triumphantly announced an overwhelming victory! While the south group suffered significant losses, the north laid waste to the primary target and reports of huge numbers of RAF shot down. We celebrated hardily though the night!

Next day the survivors formed again.

I thought the Kommadant was crazy to send us up again so soon, wounds not healed and some aircraft in pieces, and drunk on top of that!

Still, to break the tension we started to sing over the radio. Unwise, sure, but it sure gave us the spirit and resolve to do this!

On the other hand, it seems the RAF was not going to let us repeat yesterday.

Within sight of Englander the Hounds of War where set on us.

My gunners where all busy shooting every which way, the escorts trying desperately to keep them off.

But was for naught, as I saw one 111 catch on fire to left, another 111 have a wing blown off right in front of me, it was looking very bad, fast!

Then another Spit locked on to my tail, ignore my valiant gunners, and sliced off my wing with skill of surgeon.

I did not have to call a bail out, it was obvious we where going down.

As I floated down I could see the falling wreckage of aircraft impacting on the English countryside, ours and theirs, with a trail of parachutes and smoke behind each like breadcrumbs.

That night my captors where doing the cheering instead. The toasted how their flyboys did a "right number" on the Luftwaffe. Oh, they grumbled about some factories being hit, but looking around at how many of us where POW, I think they got the better of us this time. Still, I bet the message from Goering will be how "we crushed the Enlanders, again!"

PS, I still laugh on all that sining we did that last mission. What make it more funny is when the guards wonder why I am so happy. I bet they think I am mad. HAHAHA

"Sir, report from coastal radar...the hun....they're coming!"

"This is Sundial control...I have some trade for you - many bandits forming east of Lille"

Following pictures: szporyn, mona, orome, sidus, hed, kilo14

Flight leader was killed early, hed and I ended up north coast tangling with 110, both ran out of ammo, we RTBed, took off again, hed scored kill against 109. I died and dont remember much else til round 2. 2nd round damaged 2 111s (first had smoking left engine I think), but ate it from 109 behind when I turned back to engage.

"Sir, report from coastal radar...the hun....they're coming!"

"This is Sundial control...I have some trade for you - many bandits forming east of Lille"

That top quote...it's MINE!!

Vids coming, 1 hr 47 mins of it as is lol, will be cutting it down to a few 2 minute clips. For now, let me set the scene:

15:00 hrs EST

2nd Wave of bombers over the channel

After taking off late I watched as aws moved closer and closer to our small armada of 7 spitfire mk 1s. I was straining to catch up but to no avail, and I watched in awe as the yellow square surrounding our squadron turned red.

"Mj, 666!"

"He's on my tail, I can't shake him!"

"1 109 in the drink!"

I drew closer to the battle, and suddenly, coming over the horizon, I saw a large gray cloud. I then realized with horror, "That's no cloud. It's a staffel."

Duh duh duhhhhhh

Had a load of fun!

Even though I was (most likely) first kill (hammered) as I was typing (was ML for a wing and also helping coordinate it on allied side).

Stayed on for the duration getting a kick out of just listening to TS.

These events ought to be MASSIVE! Whats wrong with people :confused:

Anyways GJ CRS, these events are truly unique!

These events really rock!

RA is not the way to make a buck guys - EVENTS are!

They should be larger and more frequent and have their own software version of the game!

We had a lots of fun, many thanks to everyone who organised the event. Whould be great to see some more :-)

Btw What were the official results ?

In the first run our Spits could only get to 17k before we were bounced and we didnt see a single bomber but it seesm the southern raid got hit pretty hard.

Was the second round "unofficial" ? as we did actually find the bombers, though we only had 10 or 11 people who stayed on.
