Everyone just chill.. I am handling it as it is my responsibility to look out for my pilots.. all the facts aren't in.. I personally just believe it was a communications snafu due to a misunderstanding & heated words. Don't judge our moderators, as they have a thankless job that they do to the best of their abilities especially considering how thinly they are spread. Toss in the fact that they are human and make mistakes just like all of us.. Alberto is no longer banned or muted so there is no reason to carry this any further in a public venue unless contrary facts were to emerge.

Thanks for wanting to stick up for your fellow pilot, but I have this under control.. okay?

& yes Reid, Trey is aware that it is Alberto & not Andrea flying the FADACO name..

Yeah Trey, that was a great game.. with the ending being BOTH TEAMS hangars being destroyed within 3 seconds of each other! Kudos to our primary foes Tinkerhell & Steel Baron for such a good battle, as well as bware & others that came & went on the reds team. Great flying by Eje & Templar representing the Lafayette Escadrille well! I can't believe we managed to hang on to our only hangar for such a long time & eke out a win in the end! And special mention to you Trey for your first 100+ game as well as hitting 7000 kills in this mission! AWESOME!

What a eye-opener for my first mission of the day on Dogfight! When I entered into it the dogfight mission was going full steam ahead with Tinkerhell droppin reds left & right! Also both Werner-Voss & NetherNick were there for a bit.. My one death came from crashing against the side wall of the carrier hold when I attempted to combat-land during a furball because I was bingo ammo.

Me & Assassin£agle just hanging out while a severely outnumbered Maverique (6 vs 1) deals with overwhelming odds that included a dropper (Bubi) We decided to sit it out for awhile rather than take advantage of the situation. When Maverique asked how could Bubi be so fast? I let Maverique know he was a dropper, as I could both hear & see him drop immediately after taking off everytime. Maverique left shortly after that & some other reds spawned in so I then continued the mission to a successful conclusion.. I think Assassin fell asleep :lol:

The Mascot of the Lafayette Escadrille

In the middle of 1916, ten American pilots volunteers in the French Air Force, joined up to form a squadron under the command of major Thenault.
The Squadron was named after LaFayette, with the head of a Indian War Chief as its emblem and a baby lion as mascot.
This baby lion, named Whiskey, was purchased from 500 francs from a Brazilian dentist who has recently come from Africa and placed an ad in the New York Herald Tribune to sell this lion. The pilot Thaw took it upon himself to bring the animal to the Squadron. Thaw arrived at Gare de l'Est with " this big dog " on a leash, bought a special ticket for the " dog ", and boarded the train. Up to that time he had no difficulty. But then came the train conductor who looked over this unusual passenger with suspicion. " What is that beast ? " he asked. " It is a dog from Africa " answered Thaw. At this very moment Whiskey as if resenting such a disgraceful introduction roared in fury and showed his claws.


Raoul Lufbery playing with Whiskey

" But this is a lion ! " screamed the conductor. Some women having caressed the animal while admiring his sweetness ran out of the compartment screaming. :lol:

In order to join the Squadron, Whiskey has to travel in a luggage train. Later a young female lion named Soda joined Whiskey. Their preferred food was a soup made of meat and bread. Soda was always more wild than Whiskey : a mystery of the feminine soul !

Whiskey & Soda's final days with the Lafayette Escadrille

“Soda” and “Whiskey” surrounded by some of the pilots on the lions’ last day, 15 October 1917, with the squadron. Commandant Philippe Fequant ordered the lions removed after “Whiskey” playfully knocked him down and chewed his tunic and cap. The lions were sent to a zoo in Paris.
“Soda” and “Whiskey” at Chaudun before they were sent to the zoo in Paris. Lufbery, who was Whiskey’s favorite, assumed the sad duty of taking the lions to Paris.
Whiskey would always follow Lufbery around the aerodrome like a dog.. there was an obvious affection for the ace in the lion's heart.

Raul Lufbery is also credited with inventing 2 things: The 'French 75' a drink named after a French artillery round known for its fierce report & ground shaking tremor! He also invented the Lufbery turn, also known as the Lufbery Wheel that was still used as recently as the Vietnam War!

Attention all Lafayette Escadrille pilots!
[/b]

In order to be true to the spirit & camaraderie & honor of the original Valiant 38 of the squadron I just want to make it clear that if ever you have a problem with another pilot, moderator, or squadron you are NOT to argue about it in World Chat or on a squadron thread (whether theirs or ours) but instead bring it to me and I will handle it.. (as it falls within the duties of my being the squadron leader) as I take my responsibilities for this squadron seriously despite this being a game. This is a game and supposed to be FUN! but every once in awhile somebody will get butt-hurt over something that was said or done in a mission or on World Chat.. that's fine, it's going to happen, however we of the Lafayette Escadrille are to try to act to a higher standard than those who resort to name calling or outright lying about our pilots. We don't need to resort to such cheap & petty tactics or get in squabbles with those that don't like our tactics or whatever it was that got them butt-hurt to begin with. I am NOT saying don't stick up for yourself or a fellow pilot, just that you should act with dignity & class & not stoop to their level.. and best just to take it to the air or bring it to me and I will handle it however I deem it best in the interests of the Escadrille & the pilots involved.
That is all.
