    Fall In registration is open! See link above in post #1.

    My Wings of Glory games (and more) are as listed below. 1 on Thursday evening, 4 Friday and 2 Saturday. Saturday evening is my Titanic game.
    Searching the event list I do not see anyother Wings games being run.

    T19:240 : An Afternoon Over Sedan — Theme Game
    Thursday, 7:00 PM, 2 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    GM: Peter Landry
    Description: Summer of 1918, the German Spring offensives on the
    western front have been stopped. The US has finally started to make an
    impactful contribution on the western front and the pressure must be
    maintained to turn the tide. A flight of American Breguet bombers cross
    over the lines making their way for a raid on the rail yards in Sedan. When
    the German scouts get within sight of the Entente bombers they also find
    the Entente have sent along protection.

    F09:241 : The Dirty work Down Low
    Friday, 9:00 AM, 2 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    Description: The German 1918 Spring offensive is under way and the RAF
    sends up everything it can to help relieve the boys on the ground from the
    hell the Hun are inflicting on them from above. The German ground attack
    two seaters are tough customers and can handle their own against the
    elements on the ground, or against RAF fighters, but how will they deal
    with both?

    F12:242 : Not on My Watch
    Friday, 12:00 PM, 2 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    Description: Frances Escadrille N94 are behind German lines out to catch
    any German two seaters before they can cross over to the west. Not so
    easy for the French as Jasta 26 is up above looking for just this sort of
    incursion. French Nieuport 24s find what they are looking for and more. A
    pair of Rumplers are found but they are not alone as they are just used as
    bait by J26.

    F15:244 : Feeling out the Sky - 1916
    Friday, 3:00 PM, 2 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    Description: Early war air battles were in aircraft that could barely fly
    compared to what the late war aircraft had to offer. In early 1916 the mix
    of aircraft in the air had everyone guessing what would come next. This
    afternoons game will have an eclectic mix of early war planes for both
    sides, single, two and three seaters! Will you survive the early war to make
    it to a time where aircraft are faster, more deadly and more reliable?

    F18:243 : Behind French Lines - 1940
    Friday, 6:00 PM, 3 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    Description: The Wehrmacht races across France threatening to reach the
    sea and cutoff the British army. Amiens was key along the path of Kleist's
    Army Group. A flight of German bombers is out to destroy a French
    marshalling yard in Amiens to seal off the British, isolating them from the
    rest of France. The French quickly respond and send up their best available
    pilots and planes to stop the Hun. The bombers know better than to come alone and have some friends from JG26 there to help them.

    S12:248 : Escadrille Lafayette — Theme Game
    Saturday, 12:00 PM, 2 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    Description: Todays mission has the Lafayette Escadrille up and looking for
    a fight. Crossing the lines will make their quest easy. Sure enough they find
    what they are looking for and more in a pair of Jastas flying the sky
    dominating Albatros D.III. Will the experienced pilots from Jastas 2 and 12
    put the upstarts in their place or can the Americans make their mark in the
    sky over France?

    S16:249 : Kanalkampf! Battle of Britain - Over the Channel.
    Saturday, 4:00 PM, 3 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    Description: After the fall of France the Luftwaffe turned its attention to
    the channel. Shutting down the channel to Allied shipping was now a top
    priority. Several convoys felt the wrath of the Germans Stukas before the
    RAF upped their game with air cover.
    Stukas, 109s, Spitfires and Hurricanes fill the sky over the channel with the
    fate of the convoy below hanging in the balance.

    S20:245 : Titanic!
    Saturday, 8:00 PM, 2 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Lancaster: LN-42
    Description: Be the captain of one of the worlds greatest luxury liners
    heading out of Southampton on their voyage to New York City. Or, be a
    force of nature and guide an iceberg or two helping Neptune and Mother
    Nature rid the ocean of these monstrous manmade behemoths. Captains
    are competing against the other captains to be the first to New York while
    the icebergs compete for the most damage inflicted against the ships
    crossing their waters. Tactical maneuvering skill wins the day unless
    Neptune wakes up and interferes to turn the tables.

    Sorry for the delay in getting to these AARs. Its been a very busy fall and winter so far!

    An Afternoon Over Sedan AAR can be seen HERE.

    Fall In game 1 has a force of American Breguets and SPAD XIIIs vs a mix of German aircraft.
    Ally gets to fly her new Albatros DVa (using Fokker DVII stats for this game) for the first time. As usual, she claims it is a cursed plane! First time up syndrome hits again.
    For her I painted a Jasta 18 (1917) Paul Strahle Albatros DVa. I did this one for her as she is a very deadly pilot, the axe shows she is the executioner! Luckily in later games
    at Fall In the first time syndrome wore off.

    Yes, I am getting a little thick in the middle. But I am making up for it by getting thin at the top!
