    The Wright Flight got together for another day of flying antics. This time we met at Capstone Games in Cincinnati. In attendance we had Bill (Old guy), Sean, Ramon (Amergim), Marc, Ray (The G Dog), Robert, Robert's Son, and myself.

    The Pfalz XII fled the table. I did not get a picture of this.

    The Camel and the Junkers went at it! The tough Junkers took a beating, but its rear gunner gave the Camel some nasty stings as well. Eventually giving the Camel the BOOM!

    The Junkers managed to survive, with only two points of structure left. What tough, but slow bird!

    Ohio is tough on pilots.
    I drew 2 engine damage on either my first or second hit when I was in Dayton with you guys last June.


    Nice to see that Junkers in action, as well as the Salmson. I have a few of those but they haven't seen any table time yet.

    That looked like a great days gaming and some unusual planes to fly. I have a couple of Salmson on the go at the moment and hope to get them on teh table some time soon.
