|15th May 1942 - Return to Pearl|
|Date||15th May 1942|
|Overview||You've been ordered Back to Pearl. Your destination today is a small
task force built around the auxiliary carrier Kittyhawk, which has just
transferred some Army planes to Townsville, Australia.
She is just Northwest of your position, steaming northeast. Your 6 Wildcats will take off at dawn and land aboard the Kittyhawk for the trip back to Pearl.
|Background||Things are heating up around Midway. Our fleet carriers are refitting at Pearl. The Navy brass wants all available air assets back at Pearl in preparation for the defense of Midway.|
|Player a/c||Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat|
|Intel||Our intel guys tell us that the Japanese are moving into position to take Midway. An attack is expected in the next few weeks.|

Needless to say a simple ferry mission gets more complex...
Watch your fuel on this one - I should have taken drop tanks because I ran dry only 10 mile from the carrier and had to "cheat" by ending the mission without landing.
