MiGMan's Combat Diary This time I was leading the flight in a formation takeoff. Actually it was pretty ragged so I ended the flight and tried again - this time paying attention to the the numbers in the take off checklist.

The MiG's weren't too much of a challenge in this mission - the rugged terrain taking it's toll. At least I'm pretty sure I didn't get any hits in - things were moving along rather quickly.

On the way back I noticed that the wingmen kept much better formation if you cruise at 400 - 450 knots, rather than at a slower airspeed.
