The Age of Ace Burch Ends!

Dogfighting between Biplanes and Triplanes once again broke out at the Seven Springs resort with the 2019 Ace of Aces tournament.

Quite a few new pilots were trained by the Aces and added to the rolls. Each of the four heats, dubbed Flying Circuses, provided a target rich environment for dogfights between players, allowing opportunities for players to qualify for the Final Circus. The six top qualifiers became the finalists and then flew a round robin series of dogfights at the Final Circus to determine this year's winner.

Of the new Aces, David John Pack mercilessly shot down opponent after opponent, and Kian Jones quietly became an Ace and a Finalist.

The Final Circus consisted of top seed David John Pack, along with Bill Burtless, Melody Loder, Kian Jones, Tim Rogers and Miles Rogers. Past champions Bill Burch and Bruce Young were noticeably AWOL probably hiding back at their barracks.

The final dogfights were bloody with air filled with flying bullets and smoke. Bill Burtless survived to emerge as the Ace of Aces, Bill “Bulletsponge” Burtless becomes the new Champion.

Many thanks to all who joined the Air War and anyone looking for a quick, fun, portable game that can literally be played anywhere please join us for Ace of Aces 2020!
