    Spit 1a from ramsgate

    Took off with my element leader Philstyle and proceeded to climb to angels 7 across the channel to the ships off Dunkirk. Proceeding inland Phil spotted 4 stuka's with one escort heading to the ships.

    Going in to attack, I lost sight of all aircraft and turned right to discover the stuka's about a mile off and Phil being pursued by the escort. Ordered to ignore the 109 I preceded to make a stern ...

    Well, here goes the detailed description for my first three sorties.

    First sortie in the Fall Rot map. I took off in a 109 from Yvrench, climbing towards the east. After climbing to 4k went towards Abbeville and encountered a fight of around 10 planes some 1km below. Bounced a Hurricane and shot his left wing off with a half second burst at close range.

    Sortie 3 - 4th January
    London Raids v2.2
    Spit 1a from Southend

Flew as 6 for a time as Spit got enemy venting but then blew up in collision with it. My radiator was venting through overheating or friendly Flak damage so made immediate dead stick landing on Gravesend.

    Claims
    None.

    London Raids v2.2
    Spit 1a from Southend

    Took off at start of mission alone, climbed to angels 18 topping out over Hawkinge. Comms chatter indicated a number of small forces south of Hawkinge and dove to intercept 2 HE111s. Hits on one before I had to pull off due to return fire, saw DirtySanchez crash straight into the bomber I'd just attacked. Circled around put a 3 second burst into the second one as it dived towards the ground then climbed above. ...

  5. 50 sorties without a death

    There is a bit of a craze at the moment for this sort of endeavour. For my part I'm going to record here my sorties as a diary and see where we get to. I don't have any great expectations of surviving 50 sorties but it's going to be fun to try.

    I shall try and write down the details of who I fly with, what happens etc. any claims made will be based on my judgement of damage done and destruction seen.
