    <Title>ETO BOF Haegelen H75 Bourges HH 809 <Overview>Marcel Haegelen defended Bourges with his squadron "Patrouille Polonaise" Jun 5, 1940 when a group of He 111 bonbers attacked the City. Haegelen shot down one He 111, but was wounded in the attack.

One bullet, however, hit him in the shoulder. He still managed to nurse the plane back to base and land it. At the age of 44, 22 years after his last kill, Haegelen scored his 23rd victory. He became one of only about...

    I had to refresh my memory with the effects pack Chris, this was designed for modellers - the effects emitters need to be added into the gmax model. They won't work otherwise I'm afraid As for the contrails, they should work on any a/c with suitably modified xdp. Check that you have pasted the effects lines into your effects.xml file BEFORE it says </Effects> at the end. Contrails should already be in the ETO effects.

    Master Andre, these are for CFS3 not the ETO expansion. Correct.. Thanks for the upload, i will adjust all of this to work in ETO 1.40. The CFS3 sim is quite different..ETO has Free_France ( not France..)
