It was supposed to be a small, informal session but some big names took to the air during Indy Squadron gaming on July 7.
Five players showed up for three games, with five kills scored, two pilots reaching experienced status and two more nearing acehood.
Ethan and Stephen Dale flew British SE 5a's against the Fokker DVII's of Dory and Rick, who were escorting the DFW CV two-seat recon plane flown by Stephen.
The game lasted only three turns with both SE's going down. Stephen Dale's rookie was fatally pilot hit by Dory's 5th-mission DVII pilot, while Ethan flew his SE in for an attack on the DFW and was downed with a head wound.
Rick's pilot, Horst Weigel, disregarded a nasty critical hit in the tail of his Fokker and hung in the fight. He was the ranking pilot in the game and returned safely from his 11th mission.
