2/1/1940 - Morning Patrol
BBMF Hurricane MkII
This a regular patrol. Time for a bit of batting practice - easy really. Destroy any enemy you find in your air space,and be back in time for a spot of breakfast. Four kills will do!
My diary The mission starts in the air, which is fine - straight into the action I presume.
Out to sea we go. It's only a few minutes flight to the first waypoint.
Fight's on! To my amazement I survive the battle with 2 kills notched up.
Spotting the runway on the way home isn't quite so easy - it's a grass strip which blends in quite well with the landscape, as grass strips do! By the time I spotted it I was too close to land, so I flew on a bit and turned back to land in the wrong direction.
He he he... not quite the right thing to do!
