    Far too often, especially one of my Two Seaters in Solo Campaign Games.

    Whenever my concentration goes, which is more frequent the older I get.

    Like bombers & dive bombers for WGS and underdog scouts for WGF, so the answer is: very often.

    I just started BGS, and carnage is already happening to me. No 'Boom Cards', but '+' damage draws can be almost as deadly.

    More often than not and more often than I'd like !
    I usually fly a (captured) N.17 & sometimes 12 damage doesn't get you very far...

    i was torn between "often" and "very often". i mean, its not that i dont frequently shoot others down, but i seem to have some pretty bad luck, especially when it comes to the boom card. at origins this last year i didnt just get shot down, but recieved the dreaded boom card somewhere between 16-18 times !!!!!

    Not very often - but only because I run away far more than most. Pilot wounded, engine hit, or half damage and I will nearly always decamp to fight another day. If you count those as shootdowns, then about 50%.

    If you are not getting shoot down often or more you are not playing the game enough.

    Mostly, (I think) the people I'm playing with don't know what their doing.... (my siblings)

    As often as I make a mistake and put myself right in front of the other guys guns.

    I think one of the choices should be 'every chance I get' because that certainly seems to be my record! Unless we are playing a scenario where it behooves one to make a run for it and survive...

    All the best,

    Seems like a daily occurrence, to be honest. Probably doesn't help that I'm a fire magnet.

    My thoughts exactly, WingCo.

    Frequently I am shot down because I end up going 'head to head' with another plane but I also seem to have a lot of collisions.

    Pretty much every game, mostly because of taking too much damage, sometimes the explosions get me though.
