|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 !
|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.
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.
