P51's vs 109's will be hosting our weekly bombing mission tonight at 10 PM due to popular request.

Bombers will be B17's , 24's and or 29's. If you like to fly bombers, bomber escorts or even attackers you war more then welcome to join in. We had a good turnout last week and had great feedback.

Skins will be turned on. You can get the skin packs and net cache at http://favacw.dyndns.org/faforum/viewtopic.php?t=2006

We would like all who are interested in tonight's mission to please be on the Winds of War teamspeak (70.87.121.84) at lease 30 minutes before mission starts. This will give time for briefing and to assist anybody who needs help loading skins or have other issues.

The hosting server (P51's vs 109's) can handle well over 84 pilots without any problems

Hope to see you all there.

Here are some pics from last week. Sorry for not showing blue as I have not had time to take them yet.

We are looking for a large number of people to help fly the bombers. I know it is a one way trip at times but if we have a large enough formation (tight) we will all survive.


Hope to see you all there.

Thanks for the post IKK. I've got a small function I'm required to attend but if I can make it I will.

Been looking forward to this all week and I really hope to be there. Thanks again.

Soon as NASCAR goes back to day racing I'll be back (I'll pretend me and the crew are on the long walk back to base after JG27 Sith took my wing off last week :O ).

Add airstarts for bombers and I'll be a lot happier. Engaging bombers off map as they try to climb up to bombing altitude is not very satisfying.

No there was a large number of attackers. We had a large number of bombers (Targets for fighters) also.

Tonights mission brief.


Situation: By the Spring of 1945 the American military colossus had pushed the Japanese Imperial Forces back to the very gates of Japan itself. Though the loss of territory was grave, it was the rising crescendo of American airpower that threatened Japan the most. B-29 raids were reducing Nippon to ruin. Any hope Japan had hinged on stopping the American "Silver Dragons".
