USN Mission 7
AIRCRAFT : F-4F
December 7, 1941
AIRFIELD: Enterprise CV-6
MISSION TYPE: Intercept
MISSION SUMMARY: (This is a fictional mission, but would have been the ultimate objective of the Japanese).
The Japanese raiding party has discovered our position southwest of Hawaii. If they destroy us, our ability to project power in the Pacific, our ability to defend our territories, and our ability to aid our allies will be nil.
A scramble in the F-4F and my first move was to crash head on!
Tried again and my wingtip was shot off on the first pass. Next time up friendly FLAK damamged my control surfaces os I limped back to land on the Enterprise, Meanwhie all hell was breaking loose and some unlucky pilot collided with me as I turned to finals.
Several attempts later and I managed to stay in one piece and apparently help to drive off most of the Japanese Dive Bombers... satisfied but weary I landed on the carrier.... only just !
