Conwy Wargames Club WW1 Air combat Game 2

The second game of the day started with Dave, Pete, Pete and Dickey finishing their game 1's first and deciding to move to 1 table and fight it out. Once Tony and I had finished we too flew over and joined in.

The British form up,  Pete and Pete

The 4 planes split off to fight it out one on one with Dickey's German plane taking the first hits. Then in to the mix arrived my Red Baron and Tony's newly selected British pilot: Phil Fulford

Lots of manoeuvring

Planes overlap and the Red Baron gets in to position. Dickey controversially uses a rule whereby flying off table wipes your hits off. This is allowed then banned going forward, only allowing 1 hit to be removed using this tactic. 

First blood to the Baron! Pete's plane goes down in flames. History changed as Billy Bishop is downed by the Red Baron

Next the Baron nearly ends Tony's game

The Baron's superior flying skills ends Jim Mcudden's career and the final Pete is out of the game 

Tony downs Dave to be in turn downed by the Ace Red Baron

The Red Baron wins!
