This Sundays Mission Breif!!!!

This may be hard on frame rates. There are games for up to 19, and up to 22 pilots. It will be flown with 2 squadrons per game, with the 73 and 501 pilots on different comms:


All of the 73 Squadron planes have to be filled up with the remainder filling up 501 Squadron aircraft.


DATE:- 11th May 1940 ZERO:- 14:35 hours
2013 Reims-Champagne (St Quentin)


Gentleman each of the sections has a different patrol path so pay attention!

73 (72) Squadron:

Section 1 (3 pilots) - take off and climb to 10,000ft then patrol between Mons and Hirson then return to base.

Sections 2 and 3 (7 pilots) - take off and climb to 10,000ft then patrol between Valenciennes, Mons and Hirson before returning to base.

501 Squadron (the rest):

Take off and climb to 15,000ft before patrolling your route. Keep a lookout for recon aircraft as several have been seen in the last hour or so.

AIRCRAFT:-Hawker Hurricane MkI 12lbs
SKIN:- Squadron Personal Skins for ALL Hurricanes

OUTBOUND ROUTE:- See the flight plan for your section
INBOUND ROUTE:- See the flight plan for your section

METHOD:- Follow your route as set out above. Engage any enemy aircraft seen unless it would be foolhardy to do so.

INTELLIGENCE:- God knows what's about but I wouldn't be suprised if the Germans control the French airspace right now.

2/10ths cloud at 8000ft extending to 12,000ft.
Wind 120 at 02 knots.
Visibility Good.

No. 1 Squadron call sign - F I L M S T A R
No. 43 Squadron call sign - I M P I
No. 145 Squadron call sign - R A B B I T
No. 601 Squadron call sign - A N G E L
Ground Control call sign 2013 T O P H A T

MISSION POINT AWARD:- 1 Mission Point will be awarded if 50% or more Hurricanes return to their starting base.

Good Luck
