    Mission: Untersuchung des Wetter
    Pilots: heino-, keabr-
    Plane: 190 A4
    Flight time: 20 min
    Claims: 1 (1x Spitfire mk IXe by kearb)
    Losses: 0

    Comments: During reconnaissance of weather over enemy lines we met resistance of Mosquito mk VI and Spitfire mk IXe. I set mossie alight but in next second fellow goldie finished it. Kearb was solving some mechanical troubles in cockpit and when raised his eyes, he saw spitfire just 400 meters far, coming at him headon with guns blazing - so he pressed the trigger as well. Unfortunately it was the same moment as i was 200 meters at spit's 5 clk finishing him. This hot-headed act caused holes in keabr's fuel lines but luckily we rtbed safely both.

    Sry, that was me (maletn) flying for lc (maleti).
    Maybe I had red beacon, because, Mosquito was warpy, and I saw Heino and Keabr after I put 6x20mm in it. I didn't engage again, but because I got the kill, I tried to drag the other reds for you. I don't know, if I was good in it, but I got no trouble.
