MiGMan's diary

Take off from BA Methwold was uneventfull with the other chappies flying nicely in formation.

A short 20 mile jaunt to the coast and we mixed it up with bally Jerry !

A right set to was in order and shortly Jerry had flaming pants. We lost a chap or two - he he - I actually shot up the wings of 2 of our chappies until I turned "Aircraft Labels" on.... and I did spin in once.... but all in all a good morning's work and back in time for elevenses.
