Thanks to Zebedee for the mission name.

The planes should start rolling tonight. I'm about to get caught up at work, and my corporate taxes are in the capable hands of the US Postal Service.

"...capable hands of the US Postal Service"? :LOL:

The reputation of Fed Ex is at stake. Today we were 2 seconds late. Tomorrow it'll be 4 seconds, and then it'll become an hour...then we'll be as bad as the US Postal Service.

Couldn't resist posting that quote

Pennywise
03-17-2004, 09:57 AM
Right Waist Gunner PennyWise (8) was thrown out of the plane immediately upon the explosion, as his position disintegrated.

Stunned and flash-burned, he alertly counts to ten before deploying his chute, and comes to a soft landing on an urban street in the middle of Rotterdam.

Dutch citizens mill about to prevent the Germans from reaching the scene, and the Dutch underground grabs him and runs.

In the basement of a Rotterdam townhouse, his minor burns are treated by a comely blonde Dutch girl.

Over the coming days, he heals quickly, and the girl eventually sneaks him out and lets him plug a hole in a dike with his finger, creating a memory that will last a lifetime.

After a week of hiding and planning, the Dutch underground gets him on a ship to Denmark, and from there to Norway, where he crosses by car into the Swedish frontier and hooks up with a supportive cargo ship to England.


That's awesome!

With the luck I've had over the past 3 missions, my only sexual encounter with a civilian would be one who suffered from a severe case of necrophilia. :rolleyes:

Good Weather
Medium Flak 2 hits
-pilot compartment – logical’s oxygen supply is knocked out, and he switches to his backup system
-whammo! While logical is switching oxygen systems, the second flak hit severs the throttle wire on the #3 engine. It begins to rev up, so memyselfI, recognizing that war is wrong, shuts down the engine. The plane is close enough to the bomb zone that it can remain in formation, fortunately.
The flak hits and the revving engine cause the expected – hoover’s bomb run is off target – 0% score

Zone 1: England

Good weather
Htismaqe is bringing in a plane whose tail is in tatters – severely damaged rudder, inoperable elevators, and damaged control cables. The flight in is uncomfortable as the plane weaves and drifts. Htismaqe brings it in, bounces roughly, brings it down again, and then runs the plane off the side of the runway since his brakes aren’t fully operable. Flyin’ Doublewide bounces to a very rough landing, but is no worse the wear for it.

Chief4ever fires, misses
KC2003 fires, misses
RJ fires, misses

Me scores 2 hits
-superficial damage to tail
-starboard wing – The #4 engine gets hit and begins revving up. Joe Seahawk attempts to shut the engine down, but it won’t respond. It continues to speed up, and Taco John is having trouble keeping the aircraft moving straight. Joe Seahawk attempts to cut the fuel, but it won’t respond. The engine speeds up more. This is trouble.

The engine is redlining now and still increasing. Yard Dart is yawing to the left and Taco John can’t control it any longer. The plane whips around and does a quick 360, then repeats the maneuver. Taco John curses and hits the bailout alarm.

The team bails out of the plane, with left waist gunner RoyC75 the first out and copilot Joe Seahawk second. Taco John is next, then Archie F. Swin and oleman47. KC2003 makes a clean getaway, then RJ and kcnut.

The two men in the nose are the last out, which is unfortunate. As they approach the bailout hatch the #4 engine explodes. Bombardier Chief4ever takes a piece of the engine disk to the head and dies instantly, while Navigator ZachKC takes a serious wound to the right upper back. He is thrown out as the entire right wing goes supernova, but manages to get his parachute open.

ZachKC floats to the ground but is too injured to escape. The Germans find him within an hour, and he convalesces in a POW camp.

Archie F. Swin and RoyC75 team up on the ground and run…right into the sweep of a German patrol. They have no choice but to surrender, less than an hour after the plane was hit.

Kcnut ends up alone in the middle of a large plowed field. German soldiers approach from the east to capture him, and French resistance fighters approach from the west. Caught in the crossfire, kcnut hugs the ground as bullets fly all around. More Germans arrive from the east and the French are forced to retreat. Kcnut sighs and raises his arms. His war is over (again).

Taco John and Joe Seahawk land near each other and hit the ground running. Once again, they learn that Abbeville is heavily defended, only this time they learn it from the ground instead of the air. With soldiers milling about everywhere, they have no chance. They manage to evade the enemy for almost an hour before getting cornered in a small valley and surrendering.

Radio Op. oleman47 (9) and Tail Gunner RJ (9) land near a small farmhouse. Unsure of how to proceed, they knock on the door, and the homeowner sends word to the resistance. They enjoy a nice meal, but then there’s a knock on the door. As they scramble toward the cellar, German soldiers burst in to search the place, and it doesn’t take long to uncover the two fliers. The family is arrested as well.

Ball Turret Gunner KC2003 (9) lands near a farmhouse as well, and he also knocks on the door. He is taken in by a French family, and after a couple of days of masquerading as a French peasant he is picked up by a group of French Underground fighters who are shorthanded. Over a three-day period he helps the group detonate a bomb underneath a loaded German halftrack and conduct sniper kills on two German sentries, working his way north all the while. At the Channel, a British minisub shows up at the appointed time and KC2003 reports back to base none the worse for the wear.


No bomb run

There's a little random feature in the game called a rabbit's foot, and if a plane picks one up they can re-roll the dice one time on a catastrophic event and hope for something better. Your mission happened to have a rabbit's foot, and it got used to prevent a nasty little hit (i.e., the engine) that was about to kill you and seriously injure gh4chiefs. :eek: That was the first rabbit's foot used in ten missions.

2 Me110s attack – 1 is driven away by fighters

Chief4ever fires, misses
KC2003 fires, misses
RJ fires, misses

Me scores 2 hits
-superficial damage to tail
-starboard wing – The #4 engine gets hit and begins revving up. Joe Seahawk attempts to shut the engine down, but it won’t respond. It continues to speed up, and Taco John is having trouble keeping the aircraft moving straight. Joe Seahawk attempts to cut the fuel, but it won’t respond. The engine speeds up more. This is trouble.

The engine is redlining now and still increasing. Yard Dart is yawing to the left and Taco John can’t control it any longer. The plane whips around and does a quick 360, then repeats the maneuver. Taco John curses and hits the bailout alarm.

The team bails out of the plane, with left waist gunner RoyC75 the first out and copilot Joe Seahawk second. Taco John is next, then Archie F. Swin and oleman47. KC2003 makes a clean getaway, then RJ and kcnut.

The two men in the nose are the last out, which is unfortunate. As they approach the bailout hatch the #4 engine explodes. Bombardier Chief4ever takes a piece of the engine disk to the head and dies instantly, while Navigator ZachKC takes a serious wound to the right upper back. He is thrown out as the entire right wing goes supernova, but manages to get his parachute open.

ZachKC floats to the ground but is too injured to escape. The Germans find him within an hour, and he convalesces in a POW camp.

Archie F. Swin and RoyC75 team up on the ground and run…right into the sweep of a German patrol. They have no choice but to surrender, less than an hour after the plane was hit.

Kcnut ends up alone in the middle of a large plowed field. German soldiers approach from the east to capture him, and French resistance fighters approach from the west. Caught in the crossfire, kcnut hugs the ground as bullets fly all around. More Germans arrive from the east and the French are forced to retreat. Kcnut sighs and raises his arms. His war is over (again).

Taco John and Joe Seahawk land near each other and hit the ground running. Once again, they learn that Abbeville is heavily defended, only this time they learn it from the ground instead of the air. With soldiers milling about everywhere, they have no chance. They manage to evade the enemy for almost an hour before getting cornered in a small valley and surrendering.

Radio Op. oleman47 (9) and Tail Gunner RJ (9) land near a small farmhouse. Unsure of how to proceed, they knock on the door, and the homeowner sends word to the resistance. They enjoy a nice meal, but then there’s a knock on the door. As they scramble toward the cellar, German soldiers burst in to search the place, and it doesn’t take long to uncover the two fliers. The family is arrested as well.

Ball Turret Gunner KC2003 (9) lands near a farmhouse as well, and he also knocks on the door. He is taken in by a French family, and after a couple of days of masquerading as a French peasant he is picked up by a group of French Underground fighters who are shorthanded. Over a three-day period he helps the group detonate a bomb underneath a loaded German halftrack and conduct sniper kills on two German sentries, working his way north all the while. At the Channel, a British minisub shows up at the appointed time and KC2003 reports back to base none the worse for the wear.

Mention it to Talisman on his replacement crews thread. He's the USAAF recruiter. Good luck - you're almost a reverse ace!

Has anyone on their crew even been wounded yet? Since I've been promoted to a 1st Lt. as a Copilot, Do I have the pull to get PastorMikH transferred to our plane? Either him or Tommykat is the lucky rabbits foot for their crew. :)

Radio Op. oleman47 (9)

Target: Abbeville
Mid-formation horizontally and vertically (low vulnerability)

Zone 1 Out: Britain

No enemy

Zone 2 Out: English Channel

No enemy

Zone 3 Out: France (Entering Target Zone)

2 Me110s attack – 1 is driven away by fighters

Chief4ever fires, misses
KC2003 fires, misses
RJ fires, misses

Me scores 2 hits
-superficial damage to tail
-starboard wing – The #4 engine gets hit and begins revving up. Joe Seahawk attempts to shut the engine down, but it won’t respond. It continues to speed up, and Taco John is having trouble keeping the aircraft moving straight. Joe Seahawk attempts to cut the fuel, but it won’t respond. The engine speeds up more. This is trouble.

The engine is redlining now and still increasing. Yard Dart is yawing to the left and Taco John can’t control it any longer. The plane whips around and does a quick 360, then repeats the maneuver. Taco John curses and hits the bailout alarm.

The team bails out of the plane, with left waist gunner RoyC75 the first out and copilot Joe Seahawk second. Taco John is next, then Archie F. Swin and oleman47. KC2003 makes a clean getaway, then RJ and kcnut.

The two men in the nose are the last out, which is unfortunate. As they approach the bailout hatch the #4 engine explodes. Bombardier Chief4ever takes a piece of the engine disk to the head and dies instantly, while Navigator ZachKC takes a serious wound to the right upper back. He is thrown out as the entire right wing goes supernova, but manages to get his parachute open.

ZachKC floats to the ground but is too injured to escape. The Germans find him within an hour, and he convalesces in a POW camp.

Archie F. Swin and RoyC75 team up on the ground and run…right into the sweep of a German patrol. They have no choice but to surrender, less than an hour after the plane was hit.

Kcnut ends up alone in the middle of a large plowed field. German soldiers approach from the east to capture him, and French resistance fighters approach from the west. Caught in the crossfire, kcnut hugs the ground as bullets fly all around. More Germans arrive from the east and the French are forced to retreat. Kcnut sighs and raises his arms. His war is over (again).

Taco John and Joe Seahawk land near each other and hit the ground running. Once again, they learn that Abbeville is heavily defended, only this time they learn it from the ground instead of the air. With soldiers milling about everywhere, they have no chance. They manage to evade the enemy for almost an hour before getting cornered in a small valley and surrendering.

Radio Op. oleman47 (9) and Tail Gunner RJ (9) land near a small farmhouse. Unsure of how to proceed, they knock on the door, and the homeowner sends word to the resistance. They enjoy a nice meal, but then there’s a knock on the door. As they scramble toward the cellar, German soldiers burst in to search the place, and it doesn’t take long to uncover the two fliers. The family is arrested as well.

Ball Turret Gunner KC2003 (9) lands near a farmhouse as well, and he also knocks on the door. He is taken in by a French family, and after a couple of days of masquerading as a French peasant he is picked up by a group of French Underground fighters who are shorthanded. Over a three-day period he helps the group detonate a bomb underneath a loaded German halftrack and conduct sniper kills on two German sentries, working his way north all the while. At the Channel, a British minisub shows up at the appointed time and KC2003 reports back to base none the worse for the wear.


No bomb run
