After a good sleep, I woke up in the morning and the good spirit of the Opole HQ served us a wonderful rich breakfast to be fit for a trip to Krakau, the old cultural capital city of Poland.
On our way, Andrzej left the road for a first secret mission target. In the town of Otmice/Ottmütz he showed me the remains of a former Luftwaffe airfield.

Since the very first Wings of Glory Summer Con in 2012, my friend and wingman Andrzej, the „Nightbomber“ invited me for a stay in Poland. After a long term planning I arrived the morning Dec. 4th in Kepa/Opole for a 3 day inspection of the Opole Wing
A European Union Flag marked Nightbombers HQ. A promising blue sky was over Upper Silesia.

09:35 am: Arrived in time I started to setup my nightbombing mission. Four Lancasters, one Mosquito and handful German nightfighters waited for their first official mission.
Nightbomber commanded one of the black Bf.110. Exactly the same plane that Keith had at Origins 2014. Markus commanded the second black Bf.110. I had one with a shark

08:15 am: Mario knocked on my door and we went with Nightbomber to the upper deck for breackfast. Coffee, eggs and sausages.
Perfect weather outside and a nice riverview.
09:10 am: We’re on our way. 20 min left to the start of the first games.
We missed the Line 22 for seconds and had to wait 10 minutes.
