Very creative mission and just in time for the holidays! Maybe your call sign should be St. Nick for this one!

Sounds interesting...if only to fly under the Bridge! Does the TE accommodate all of us at the same time, or will we fly solo BMS sessions?

Are we able to fly solo too? I signed up but am not sure I'll make it.
I'll also record and share the video.

Congratulations to Zeus who took first place in today's race. It was an exciting event with many twists and turns. In the end, it was an extremely close result and the two front runners with equal points were actually decided by time.

Here are a few impressions:

Many thanks to all participants. It was great fun and we had some "lessons learned".

If we don't see each other in the next days, have a nice Christmas everyone.

See you next time,
Nick

I enjoyed it very much and good exercise at 5 minutes flight planning and determining what weapon to use on what target.

Merry BMS-mas and Lots of Flying for 2022!
