Air Power Cold War

Mission Name Warsaw Pact. Mission 1
Bears in Trouble
A/c Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-19S 'FARMER'
Briefing Protect the bombers and destroy the fighters.
Mission planning by Phil Perrott, April 2000
MiGMan's Combat Diary It's a tough job protecting those Bears against the Hawker Hunter F.6's of R.A.F. Woodbridge.

If you do clear the air don't try and land at R.A.F. Woodbridge or you'll get a most unfriendly reception from the AAA! Since there are no waypoints leading home I decided to 'defect' and land at the deserted base a few miles South.
