Since we was posted to France Tangemere Pilots have had many online adventures.

The thinking was that we would fly the Battle of France Campaign(a fantastic effort from our mission builders,litterally every week brought a new surprise,and i for one loved flying the Hurribus) then maybe go on and fly DAH DAH DAH!!!!!!



THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN in Cliffs of Dover!!

Although we all hope that one day this will live up to what is expected for the 40+Online pilots of Tangmere at the moment it falls short(You have never met me,that takes a lot for me to say!!!)
Although actually the battle lasted weeks,we would have flown it for months and months,flying all types of a/c and missions,with no doubt some "funnys"thrown in for good measure.

Since my last post i volunteered for No333 Squadron(Banff Wing temporaly)and like a few other Tangmere Pilots asked for special duties,i know,i know being ex Army "you never volunteer for nuffing!!!!"

But as stated before we fly our"Campaign Missions on a Sunday night,21:00 very sharp!! before that we tend to fly a d/f server and guninelly have a laugh when our Trg Instructor crashes into imaginary trees!!!

Anyway any anyway as i was saying,i volunteered for this"SPECIAL DUTIES" and after the special duties Flt carried out there Recce Flt somewhere in Norway,photos provided to the the rest of the Wng, little did i know that i would be asked to lead the WHOLE Tangmere Wing in on an OPS night!!!

Had to give the C.O a set of of orders,flight plan,height,weather route in etc etc etc!!!

Thats because i volunteered,you wont be expected to(unless you want to ) im normally Blue2 ie wingman to a bloke called No1 Charlie,hes ok as far as ldrs go but hes normally stuck in "traffic" or on face book talking to.... ER ooops sorry Charlie!!!!!



Thats how The Tangmere Pilots work,A good laugh with mates(and i have met quite a few over the last 3 odd yrs ive been with this lot) when we can,ie trg on a tues and d/f on sunday(not to mention the COOPs on a friday night, i cant seem to make them as im normally out )

If you want to know more please send our Trg officer an e mail(or if you want to no more before you committ send me a pm)

Ive got to say,ive downloaded missions from the net that people rave about but they are seriously nothing compared to what our"boffins" bang out week after week,and whats more 90% of them are historical,as are our campaigns

What follows is a few pics of our ongoing battles with the hun(and if you see a message that reads"No1 Cheese just got shot down by flak etc etc,well even IL2 has its bugs)also a few of our last weekly updates from Jacko(our spy)

So if your interested in joing a group of blokes that enjoy the same things you do and genuinly have a laugh,get intouch.

What have you got to lose?

We have FOUR active Squadrons and you could be posted to any of them(provided you pass OTU )

Hope to hear from you

No1 Cheese

No1 Squadron Tangmere Pilots
Pics to follow.
ps ive just got in from work and cant get a spell checker to work so excuse me for any mistale in my speellinng

As promised,this was the "brief"we was given.
No333 then went out on there Recce Flt and come back with the following goods.
The Recce Flt has strict orders not to engage the enemy.
Now dont think this is a short straw(ang on,who keeps mentioning height !!!!) because we fly the mssion that we give a breif on and we know what to expect(yeah ok the mission builder make it that simple .

Heres the breif..........

Over the past 3 months, enemy air opposition had been fairly sporadic against the Wing. The Germans would no longer be content to send out single or small mixed groups of fighters to attack the Beaufighters and Mosquitos.

On the 7th December, Staffels from JG5 moved into southern Norway and from this point the Strike Wing would be met with up to 40 enemy fighters, including Fw190's and Me109's, nearly every time the wing flew a strike operation.

The Luftwaffe had 50 109's and 30 190's in operation from several bases including Gossen, the Mustang escorts were going to be kept very busy for the next for months...........

315 Squadron to provide top cover escort to and from the target area AND whilst the attack is in progress.
Return to base and land or ditch if required in "safe area" as detailed below.


METEOROLOGICAL REPORT:-

General Weather: Poor
Cloud Height: 1900 m
Wind Velocity: 3 m/s
Wind Direction: 280 Deg
Gust: Moderate
Turbulance: Moderate

SIGNALS:-
No. 333 Squadron call sign - W E A V E R
No. 235 Squadron call sign - M E R I T

A "Vickers Warwick" with a detachable lifeboat will be patrolling in grid D11 for the second mission ONLY. Any pilot who ditches safely in this
area will be deemed to have been "rescued" and returned to base. His aircraft will still be lost however.

INTEL:-

Luftwaffe fighter defense has increased with large numbers of fighters operating from Gossen and Herdla. Flak defense of enemy airbases is expected to be heavy and concentrated.

NOTES:-
This mission will be a combined Wing Op. Escort will be on seperate comms chanel.

Good Luck

Bunster


EXTRA NOTES:-

More details will posted later this week, however I thought you ought to have some warning about this mission so you could adjust your Tuesday training to suit.

The "photos" will have to be taken using Fraps or some such other method of taking screen shots. The screen shots must be from within the cockpit of the aircraft, no outside views.

You will need to post these photos into a place where the rest of the Strike Wing can see and study them. A post in the Ops Room would seem the best idea.

You may if you wish fly the mission earlier on Sunday than normal or indeed any other night so you have time to get the photos posted. Try to avoid TP nights.

Any questions ?

And heres the results we come back with that the Squadrons of Banff had to decipher and decide what was there options.......


BANFF 07 RECONNAISSANCE REPORT

Reconnaissance reports that over Gossen the weather was clear with scattered cloud. Some ground haze was present making individual targets hard to see. Photographs were taken as follows:

1. From south of Gossen providing an overview of the island.

2. From the NW so that all of the airfield and harbour can be seen. The aircraft appear to be a mix of bombers and fighters, with the fighters concentrated to to the east of the runway. Out of shot to the right was a transport ship that appeared to be stationary.

3. The cluster of building and vehicles to the eastern end of the runway.

4. The harbour that is north of the eastern end of the airfield.

5. One further picture from the NW.

Some 88 flak bursts were seen. Predominantly the flak appears to be of small calibre (37mm and 20mm) but quite dense. Lingering in the target area is definitely NOT recommended. To the SW of the island was a flak battery of what appeared to be 88s. All flak is protected by sandbags and/or revetments.

The recommended method of attack is for an anti-flak force to proceed the main strike force by 30 seconds. Using rockets at least some of the flak should be taken care of in one pass. Thereafter the main strike force should attack from the SE with targets assigned beforehand.

Note: During recon an Arado float plane was shot down, and one Mosquito, piloted by F/O. Merlin, came under attack by two FW190s that were then destroyed by F/Lt Mosie and F/O Madmick.

Photographs:





Ill post the results afyer ive had my Dinner
