Most CIRCUS ops only require 6 Blenheims. If there is an excess of Blenheim enthusiasts, they could be added to the formation, take crew positions in the original 6 or undertake separate supporting missions that could be briefed on the night. The problem being that the exact numbers of pilots / crew turning up are rarely known before the event.

The aim at present (it may change) is for the mission to run continuously over 3 hours, without a shift system, so guys won't necessarily be able to do their fighter mission and then help crew up a Blenheim because of the overlap in sortie times.

610 are at westhampton, from previous experience it has loads of bumps across the field making it hard to take off and land

Can we correct these or take off from somewhere else

Yep, well aware. We may go to Ford or Tang. Lets see if it works or not first. Start practicing those rough field landings!

Looks good Ginger, possible a little too thick though? Here are some fonts that might come in handy.

Other than that, you only need the Sky nose, belly and tail band.

Excellent stuff :salute:

Here's v.2 , not to bothered about the font size , all the pic's i've looked at have them slightly different so for the short period where using them they will do. Just need to add serial No's and if the Brass are

What's the plan re skin distribution? Can anyone remind me how it works in CloD - do we have to have a sesh where each squadron spawns in and we wait to until everyone sees all skins? We could do something Tacgrab-like but:

1) iirc CloD makes calculates a hash of skins which it then also distributes to clients. I'm not sure what format said hash takes so we would need a "clean" master list on the server created by CloD before we can dsitribute it
2) CloD may be more efficient at distributing than me (although I supposed we could have people pull the skins at a point before campaign if we store them in the cloud somewhere, reducing the bandwidth demands on the server)
3) I don't have a lot of time - anyone else feel like doing it? There must be a few other coders here?

As a reference for 64 Squadron Spitfire IIa lettering, here is a picture of SH-L after it was shot down.
