will it just model the south of england? i'd love it if some of scotland was modeled, its a beautiful place, lots of lovely mountains and lochs to fly down i seem to remember a story of a heinkel flyin over loch ness or something, it could lead to some interesting what if situations, say if the germans decided to try and invade the hebrides first (hey it could of happened!)

What would they do when they got there?



Tedious unoriginal philosophical statement the pith of which is lost in repetition.

There was fighting in the north too wasn't there? I got that impression anyways.

There was plenty of minelaying sorties off the north and east coasts during the BoB, but the major activity was on August 15th, when Luftflotte 5 sent three separate raids against the north of England, using He111s, Ju88s and Bf110s. They were hit hard, losing 16 bombers and 7 110s. The only real damage they inflicted was at the bomber station at Driffield where four hangars and ten Whitleys were destroyed. Luftflotte 5 didn't go in for large raids again after that.
Cheers!

Ladies & gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. Thankyou for choosing to fly Mandarin Airlines. Those passengers sitting on the left-hand side of the aeroplane please make yourselves comfortable. Those sitting on the right... please look to your left!

How about bombing missions against the British Fleet at Scapa Flow ... that'd be pretty far north.

I've certainly heard plenty of stories of planes coming down or jettisoning their loads over Northumberland so hopefully that will be included.

And if its in, I want to see if I can fly a Spit underneith the Tyne Bridge!

There have already been quite a number of bobs on the north pole, which proves how far north bob will go. Here is a link to one of the more interesting tales of a bob going way up north, and it is also flight related:
