|MiGMan's Combat Diary||The first thing I noticed, apart from my wingmen - I was last in the pack - It's good to see some ocean traffic below- it makes you feel part of a living sim-world.
As we approached Sokcho-ri some P-51 Mustangs called for help and we tangled with Yak-9's over the most precipitous landscale I've seen in Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator (1998).
After a good dogfight I elected to try the more thrilling approach to Sokcho-ri - over the mountains and a steep descent to runway 44.
