    Mission: freie jagd
    Pilots: matepl, ngmare
    Plane: Bf109F4
    Flight time: 30 mins
    Claims: 1 (hurricane II by matepl)
    Losses: 1 ngmare KIA

    We took off from f8, went at 6km alt to midway f32-30, then there were no cons at hi alt so we dived on 4 fighting dots, in hi speed pass (~700km/h) an hurricane cutted off ngmare wing with 12!x20mm, he was to fast to bail succesfully and he died on his not fully opened chute. In second pass matepl killed one hurricane II and disengaged, after that matepl atacked spitfire and get an assist on him.
    rtbed to f27

    yes, not a good start :D

    i watched track that was so unbelievable
    we dive on 2 lo hurr2s fightin with 2 ours;
    i reduced speed on deck to ~570kph to have my plane more manueverable; when spotted one hurri turned and goin ho i made negative g manuever and gone lower to about 20m to avoid when hurri was d8 my 12oclock; and i thought i succed but after 2-3seconds after pass my wing blew off;
    as i watched the track i had the guy d7 behind me when i got all 12 hits in one ping; im not sure if i would avoid if not netlag but im pissed anyway :D
    afterall, have to wait to next tod to fly; smbdy send the young pilots family a note ;)
