    Mission: freie jagd
    Pilots: -herz- and heino-
    Plane: Bf109F2
    Flight time: +- 25 mins
    Claims: 2 (1 Spitfire MkV by heino- and 1 I-16 -herz-)
    Losses: 1

    Comments:
    I took off from F22 while heino started by mistake from F2. But allright, we managed to meet yet otw to the target wich was F3.
    Area was full of cons and we arrived at 5km alt and started our attacks after meeting an Hurricane and I-16. I attacked the I-16 shooting it down and heino got few hits from the Hurricane during this combat. After that we went more south to intercept cons from F1 where heino shotdown a Spitfire MkV.
    We kept the pressure over the cons until i dived over another Spitfire MkV that was zooming up, i attacked from beind when i was D3 he seemed to be leveling out and at D2 i opened fire and what a surprise when i noticed tracers from him too... yes.. he was leveling out but upside down coming firectly to me. It was a nothing intentional Head-On and of course his 2x20mm won.
    I would never do an intentional Head-on against a Spitfire MkV while flying 109F2 with 17 streak.

    After the pass i was on fire missing a wing... bailed out. Captured.
    Heino rtb safe.

    Mission ouctome: 2 kills and one loss.


    ps: heino (manoce) is now the last active veteran alive and most experienced so you are free to form up flights and keep it going.
    There are more pilots around that flies for 1 life: spuint, big-jo, nicae, priest and others.. check the pilots list.

    It was not good sortie.. well we were never in troubles but something was wrong.. our timing was bad and my gunnery sucked

    however i guess it would go better later in sortie, after we got used to new plane... the fate was against us:(

    I'm sorry that I will not fly with you again, haupt (this is my last ToD)
    it was pleasure
