My first campaign - summary

Mission type Aircraft flown Starting Location Date Time Comments
Anti-Ship Typhoon IB Eastchurch, UK 3/11/43 0630 I had to refly this 3 times.. read about it here

The blast radius of a 1,000 lb bomb is apparently greater than 1,000 feet...
Anti-Ship Typhoon IB Eastchurch, UK 3/11/43 0745 I chose to keep at ship busting .. because it's fun !

Ship busting
Combat Air Patrol Typhoon IB Eastchurch, UK 3/11/43 0830 A change of pace - Messerschmidt BF-109's turned up to play.
Anti-Ship Typhoon IB Eastchurch, UK 3/11/43 0945 My right aileron control cable was damaged by a wingman as we both strafed a ship. It was my fault.... I flew through the path of his rocket attack. On the way back to base trim control was difficult and I nosed over on landing. Try again.
Anti-Ship Typhoon IB Eastchurch, UK 3/11/43 1033 Second attempt. This time - if the plane gets wobbly I'll bail out! Hmmm... famous last words. This time it wasn't my wingman or my erratic flying but the heavy FLAK which got me.

Bail out
At least I survived the mission.
Mission ended at 1044.
Combat Air Patrol Typhoon IB Eastchurch, UK 3/16/43 1111 This CAP was over friendly territory - right over my home base in fact. A flock of Ju-88's were atacking - I shot down one and landed slightly damaged amongst smoking wreckage and a crumpled hangar.

Strike Typhoon IB Eastchurch, UK 3/21/43 1150 Strike Bridges on the French coast, 61 miles, just North of the proposed invasion zone at Calais.

Got the bridges... then went hunting for vehicles....



He he he .... I got a little too cocky after decimating a convoy of vehicles. I don't know exactly how low I was flying but it was below the tree tops and I was following the road. Must have clipped a wingtip and I crashed and burned.

Oh yeah... that's low!
On my second attempt we got the bridge, attacked a convoy - blowing a bridge first so half the convoy was trapped. Then on the way back to the coast I buzzed an enemy airfield, attempting to strafe the control tower (I missed). As we reached the French coast again I noticed coastal defences near our invasion zone... I'll go for them next time.
