RAF Mission 2
Dawn Raiders IIYou are in the second group attacking the Falklands defenders - whilst the first group concentrates on Stanley airport, you bypass this battle to head for Goose Green airfield, your primary target. There you catch up with the Pucaras that managed to escape the raid on Stanley.
Destroy at least three of the Pucaras in the area before returning to the carrier.
INTELLIGENCE:Like Stanley, AA guns heavily defend the airfield - try to avoid engaging the enemy aircraft over the airfield. You may be able to catch some aircraft taking off - these will be easy targets, so act immediately.

My diarySimilar to the first mission. Good clouds and some excellent dogfighting.
Once again you start in the air, but strangely, the waypoint which shows up after you've despatched the Pucaras shows 130 miles to home base!
Warping is disabled, but with half a tank of gas left, that shouldn't be a problem in the Harrier... right ?
Think again - I tried twice and ran out of gas both times - even at 20,000 feet and 50 % throttle. So I selected "Flight - End Mission" ... and received the dreaded "Mission failed - you did not achieve your objectives" message.
Ah well, enjoy the dogfight, end the mission, accept the harangue, and on to mission 3 !
