Fourth of July Dawn Patrol 2011

The Dawn Patrol game for the Secondhand Lions was played as per tradition on the morning of the 4th. We began at 8:00 with mimosas on the patio. Flying sorties began around 8:30 featuring Jasta 11 vs. Squadron 60. The German planes were dominant this year despite repeated jamming of the guns. All three allied planes were destroyed and forced down.

I am teaching at a summer camp this year and have passed the tradition of clothespin aircraft on to the next generation.

Best regards to all readers and happy fourth of July.


  1. Those look really neat, sir.

    Might I suggest a "how to" tutorial post on making those planes?

  2. Ken,

    I was going to ask the same question as Jeff--are there instructions somewhere on how to make the planes? They would work great with the rules at Junior General.

    Best regards,
