arrasdf3¬†posted this originally at the Older Gamers forum, where a small few of us play this, but decided to make a blog post as well. I was recording the battle, but due to reasons shown later down the story I am unable to bring actual screens form the battle. Screens provided instead are from the same mission, which I had to repeat due to the client crashing and not recording the result. 

Standard Offensive Patrol, usual stuff, mid October overcast, drizzly, low level stuff, right in Archies range the whole time. I had just gotten out of hospital after getting shot up when downing another British two seater and first mission back on duty.

Ok so recently I have been getting back into flight simming, I used to do it many years ago but have not really played around with many since the original Il2 Sturmovik, which still remains to me the greatest flight sim ever (seriously, try the full 1946 version with the Ultrapack and Dark Blue World installed, its great) and I have recently discovered this WWI sim, Rise Of Flight.

Ok so my last wordpress blog broke for some reason, I have no idea why. This is a fresh install of the same software and hope it will stay working better than the last one. I will be transfering a blogger blog to this site as well as soon as I figure the process out so it will work as a back up.
