Upcoming Events: RAF100 and Bloody April

April 2018 will be a busier month as far as Rise of Flight community events go. No 56 Sqn will participate in commemorating the exact 100th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force (RAF) on April 1, 1918. This event will take place on Sun, 1 Apr 2018 (not a joke!) on the Cuban/SteveF Syndicate Connection Multiplayer Server in Rise of Flight and will feature a truce for a 30-minute RAF tribute, culminating in a group firing of many flares into the sky. This wouldn't be completely unprecedented: as Alex Revell writes in his book, No 56 Sqn RAF/RFC, that upon scoring their 200th victory, "the squadron's entire stock of Very lights (flares) was fired into the evening sky -- 40 red, white and green lights lit up the countryside". Also, Jasta 5's annual Bloody April event will be taking place that month, and No 56 Sqn will try to participate on most of those Saturdays, if possible.

See you in the virtual skies!
