‘The Tangmere Pilots’ operate in the spirit of The Few who flew from Tangmere in the Battle of Britain. We exist in the 1940’s as virtual squadrons and relive critical World War 2 aerial campaigns, flying both as Allied and Axis. Previously flying 'IL-2 1946', 'IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover' and currently enjoying the excellent 'IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad'.
Operation Bodenplatte... We will initially be flying as the Royal Air Force (later as USAAF, VVS and the Luftwaffe) in the skies over western Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium during the winter of 1944 and early 1945. Bodenplatte was the German code word for the bold operation to launch a surprise low-level attack on multiple Allied airfields on Jan 1st, 1945.
