    we rolled f7 and climbed south. soon after we entered over f22 (allied) we spotted defence organizing to defend field. after disabling AA artillery we cleared area from all enemy aircraft:
    one yakovlev tried to follow zooming wiciu and was easily cleared by covering humbee,
    one spitfire tried to climb east when we were bombing field, but nitrat and thwack cleared him seconds later - nitrat decided to head him on inspite there were all 4 of us nearby (!!),
    one more spitfire was trying to roll from attacked airfield but was easily taken out by nitrat.

    there was one more enemy, but - after meeting us with altitude advantage - simply disappeared.


    this sortie was good (except that head on by nitrat) and we were perfectly safe, covering each other (there was one moment when thwack had one of the spitfires on his 6, but nitrat cleared him off and humbee+wiciu were otw too).
    so - 3 claims, no losses - thats a good start.

    freehost has problems with too many squads. (you can't create a new squad permanently.)
    therefore, old squads are deleted. even ladoga = -illo- is out of squad. i hope, the new jg54 by spuint will be useable for a long time. maybe we have to create every two weeks a new squad.
