Had time for two missions tonight, might try and squeeze one more in before I hit bed. Started up a new pilot in 1915. Hans Gruber :) in squadren III MLFA -Jagdlieger. We're sporting the Fokker EI and OMFG I've never flown anything worse in any sim in my entire life. It's like trying to drive a drunk hippo. First mission I crashed trying to make a right turn because apparently it's really not designed to turn. Didn't get hurt, but was captured for 3 days. You can't keep Hans down!
Second mission we had a patrol over our own area. We spotted an enemy plane and rowed ourselves behind him. (Seriously I think I could have gotten out and walked faster.) It was a Saulnier L so it had a rear gunner that was peppering us. For the next 5-10 minutes the saddest dogfight in history "erupted". It comprised of me trying to not crash and take pot shots. Eventually he tried to make a run for it and I somehow hit him enough to get him to crash in no mans land.
Made it home safe and sound, but even circling the field was an adventure in that pig of a plane. I'm not so sure how long I can fly that thing. :( Kill was confirmed and I got my first medal. yippee ki yay!
