Thread: This Thursday sees The Wright Flight once more in the air

    Default This Thursday sees The Wright Flight once more in the air

    This Thursday, the 21st of November, is the Third Thursday of the month - that means we are flying at Dragon's Guildhall in Beavercreek, Ohio, from 6 to 9 PM. Hopefully we will see some of our mates who aren't able to make the regular Saturday forays. Not sure at this stage of the game what's going to be in the air...

    I will bring along Tripods in case that suits the group's fancy, and I am sure Jim will bring a mix of mid- and late-war planes (although I have a dim recollection of someone talking about early war planes at our last outing...)

    Hope to see you there if you're able to make it!

    All the best,
    Matt

    I could scare up some DH.2s and Eindecker E.IIIs if you so desire.


    Here's to them what are like us. Damn few and they're all dead.

    I will probably bring along some Morane-Saulnier Ns and early Caudrons as well.

    Our Dragon's Guildhall get together was fun. Our first round had two Caudron G.4s jumped by four Eindecker IIIs. The Caudrons have pretty limited maneuverability but jinked about just enough to get across the board. The Eindeckers were more maneuverable than people realized and this helped the French as well.
    The second round had two tripods against four late war planes including Billy Bishop and a red Billy Bishop I had repainted. The tripods held formation and gave great support to each other. They even took some brutal damage to their shields but were both standing at the end of the game.

    Great looking models Jim, the action looks pretty hot and heavy & fun for all.
    Looks like you dropped the second pic - if you put a [ in front of ATTACH it should restore it to place for you.
