those that play the Play By Forum game on BGG have flown night missions before. Would people want to fly night missions here with the 509th? One mission coming up in the 5th campaign is a night mission.
I have sent the guy that runs the group on BGG a message asking him about night missions since he runs a good group.
Should we fly night missions? or treat them as day missions?

As I read the suggested rules, a Tame Boar will only attack from 6 Low (if it has surprise) or else Vertical Climb. Some variants I've seen roll on B-6 to determine the attack position if the Tame Boar is spotted and the bomber employs evasive action. Are you going to incorporate Shrage Musik?

deanh57: Problem Child lost heat in the pilot compartment inbound Zone 6. Dropping to 10000 feet Zone 5 for the ride home. Someone else will have to take over as TEC for the 79th.

crushedhat: Continuation of previous: Of course, I'm still rolling each extra turn for additional Mechanical Failures.

crushedhat: Continuation of previous: If I haven't used up my 'extra Turn/Zone' fuel, I've got at least that many extra turns to circle the field while trying to solve problems like manually lowering the landing gear.

crushedhat: Since the other rules (I.e. TFT 5.10 Engines Out) don't stipulate a concern for running out of fuel while spending 2 turns/Zone, I'm going to assume that I've got at least enough fuel to cover 2 Turns/Zone for the entire Mission.

crushedhat: Two Mechanical Failures this mission makes up for not having one last mission. Still averaging at least one MF/Mission. On a related note, how many turns can we circle the field while trying to solve problems?

limburger59: There are no optional rules (yet) for secondary targets. I've been tempted but application to an individual out of formation bomber vs. a most historical secondary for the entire group puzzles me. Do you have any ideas superbee?

GaryK: Didn't signal the start of our mission here, but Cheyenne Cannonball returns from the Alps with another navigator KIA.

superbee: Someone from the 79th will need to assume squadron lead, starting from Inbound Zone 6. Tempe (Capt Wentworth) has aborted the mission.
