    Hey Owen, where'd you get the skin for the B-17 in your last pic? I've not seen it before. Precious few B-17 skins around, at least for the freeware model.

    I have several different B-17 skins from the past, many are over ten years old, I re-skinned the AV models with downloads from Netwings and SOH then Combat FS.. and later the firepower model once I purchased Firepower..


    This came directly from AVH before they shut down..

    Sorry about that Master Pops, after going to the Italian wings site, there are many less of these then at one time.
    Also missing several CR 42 aircraft once there.

    I had this loaded when I did those Italian missions years ago, and decided Not to use it. Because I had to make a standalone or this skin..
    Then deleted it later. It was a one of a kind skin once on the Italian wings site.

    I may still have this saved to a CD from the past, But to find it would take weeks of looking into MANY hundreds of old CD's I burnt in the past with all of this saved.
    I do remember deleting it from my set ups because I needed the room back then on the hard drives.
    But I also Know I saved it somewhere on a CD..
    Where God only knows right now..

    Very sorry about the confusion on this..
    With 15 installs of various CFS3 and expansions loaded on my e-machine(old computer) sometimes it is hard to remember what is where, and at one time I did did remove Lots of unused aircraft to save HD space.
    Don't have that issue now..
    As time goes along I will try to find her again on the CDs for you..
    Often look into these, and find forgotten and removed birds that now I can reinstall..

    Working on some Missions, this was too cool!!
    October 7th 1944 Second Lieutenant Urban Drew was flying with wingman McCandless when he spotted the German airbase at Achmer and went down for a look. Two Schwalbe's were just taking off when Drew dived on them, McCandless keeping right with him. The first Me 262 exploded when hit by the .50s of "Detroit Miss". Drew says he was surprised when the second Me 262 tried to climb away, allowing him to turn inside and shoot away the jet's control surfaces. When Drew returned to base, he found that not only had his wingman failed to return after being hit by flak following Drew's victories, but the gun camera also failed. Only after the war did Drew learn his wingman had survived.
    More than 40 years later, an Air Force clerk noticed Drew's claim for two Me-262 victories on the same mission. She contacted a custodian of German war records, who knew former Luftwaffe pilots who might be able to shed light on the claim. Georg-Peter Eder had been set to lead the Me-262s of JG 7 that day, but when his aircraft had problems taking off the two-ill-fated pilots took off to lead JG 7. Eder says he saw a yellow-nosed P-51 dive on the Me 262s and shoot them down. Eder couldn't read "Detroit Miss" on the nose of the Mustang, but his account was sufficient to confirm Drew's two Me-262 victories.

    In going through all my files to make them Win 7 Specular and AnKor's Self-Shadowing dll compatible I discovered that there was a Blackburn Skua hidden in MAW that I never knew was there. It was a quick edit to make it flyable and here it is.

    Pat's BoB Version 1

    On a campaign mission to nip a German invasion in the bud. Found the convoy 9NM off the coast from Dover. Luckily Pat had put a lot of invasion defenses above the White Cliffs. Good job with the Global Layer.csv, Clive!!

    It helped that I had set MissionFriendlyGroundSkill to 100 in the Campaign section of the Uisel.xml. That being said, the coastal artillery fire was the best I've seen - before my wingmen managed to drop their bomb loads, two ships had already been sunk and the mission goals accomplished.

    Oh, and making sure the "noise" parameter (which deals with accuracy, not sound) on the large calibre harborguns was set very low in the guns' xdp files must have helped too.....

    Unfortunately I strayed in the path of an intercepting flight of 110s so was not in too good a shape to participate although my trusty Hurri got me back to land (screenies from two nearly identical campaign missions).

    The Global Layer is Gordon 'Flashgordon' Townsends fine work, the ETO eras are also based upon it. If you read through the .csv file it's packed full of information about 1940's Britain, worth a look.

    Thanks Ian,
    Been building for ETO Historical missions, yea even sometimes a hobbit has to do Historical..

    Capt.Don Gentile January 14, 1944 - On a free lance mission to Magny-Soissons, France, the group encountered 15 FW-190s east of the formation, 3,000 feet below. The 336th made the bounce, engaging the enemy from 18,000 feet down to the deck. Don Gentile made a head-on run with two of them. They broke, which allowed Gentile to chase and shoot them both down, making him an ace. With two 190s still on his tail, he heard numerous strikes all over his aircraft. He turned into them and ran out of ammunition. One of the Focke Wulfs stuck right with him, obviously flown by an old pro. Fifty feet over the forest of Compiegne Gentile radioed "Help! Help! I'm being clobbered!" Other 4th pilots radioed back but he was too rattled to answer. All he could do was keep turning into the other aircraft. After 15 minutes of reversing turns and head-on attacks, the German ran out of ammunition and both fighters turned for home. Gentile remembered the encounter as his most critical, since he felt he could honestly beat anyone from that point on, having met and survived the best.


    On Nov. 21 1944 Capt.William Whisner led a flight of P-51s on an escort mission to Merseburg, Germany. As the bombers left their target, a large formation of enemy fighters struck. Meyer (now a lieutenant colonel) told Whisner to take a straggler in one of the enemy's three six-ship cover flights. In a linked series of attacks, Whisner shot down four FW-190s in the cover flight and probably got another.
    With no more than two Fw190s left in the cover flight he had attacked, Whisner turned his attention to the main enemy formation, exploding a FW190 that had not dropped its belly tank. Evading three FW190s on his tail, he shot down another that was closing on one of his pilots. Then, low on ammunition, he joined up with Meyer and returned to Bodney.

    On January 24, 1944, the 20th Fighter Group P-38s flew escort support for an 8th AF assault on Frankfurt. The weather over the target sector was completely overcast, and these bombers were forced to abort once they reached Limburg, some thirty-five miles northwest of the city. The formation separated to confuse the German defenses, and fifteen fighter groups were launched to get all the bombers home. Near Brussels, some fighter groups including the 20th P-38s encountered about sixty Luftwaffe fighters but engaged and scattered them before they could attack the retreating bombers.

    Yea getting the real thing..
    From Allied and Axis perspectives
    Much rejoicing!
