Good Stuff all.

 

One of the things I enjoy most with FNBF is meeting everyone around the world and being able to fly with and against them.

 

Here after 4 years we in [DBS], chicky, El_Marta and myself, finally team up on an attack sortie with our usual fighter escorts and/or foes, NN_Razor and 307_Banzai...

Although I don't believe Banzai will be having me as an wingman anytime soon. Just about mission end time I venture out to bounce the 262s bent on avenging earlier thrashing by said aircraft...

Here I got the jump on Memphis, who does his best John Lennon impression, and Asgar, who adroitly not only evades my under and over shoots, but sends me into the trees...

I had a great time flying last Friday.

 

Peshka sortie was very intense. Trying to get to the target without being spotted and intercepted. Going fast on the deck scared of what turned out to be barrage baloons. Being chased by relentles 109's and forced landing in the field. My gunner did great. Got two 109's.

 

A-20 sortie was a blast also. Keeping formation while being attacked by Schwalbe. Seeing flight leader being heavily hit and then falling out from formation in smoke only for Tip to take over leadership and bring us to the target. 

 

I believe I was the only bomber to come back from this mission. 

 

Great mission all around with plenty of action on both sides. Fighters were busy. Bombers were doing their thing. 262 was as expected deadly and sneaky.

 

Thanks for organising Tip and thanks to all who participated.

Yep both Pe-2 and A-20 sorties were intense...

Unfortunately I forgot to record the Pe-2 sortie.

Good times.

 

=================================================

 

Okay no mission for the next 2 weeks as I have family coming in to visit. I'll try and get the AAR report up later today or tomorrow along with some more screenies.

Hit hard by 30mm, Chicky's A-20 starts to drop out of formation...
