Status: Pilot ok, A/C just pop a new engine in her

Flew together with Boyesee and Esri in 1. Schwarm. I was separated from them when we engaged the rif-RAF off Selsey Point. I returned to the bombers and got in behind a Hurricane and scored hits. The venting Hurri dove steeply away, but the local air space was too congested to follow him. I was soon diving away myself as a Spitfire approached from behind, he was forced to break by another 109.
As I regained altitude slightly in land, I could no longer see the bombers or other contacts. I headed for Selsey Point to rejoin with Boyesee. I spotted some high contacts over the sea and climbed. A Spitfire was on the six of a venting 109, the Tommy spotted me as I closed on him. A brief scrap ensued, I got hits on the Spit, but it didn't look serious, however I then over-revved the engine and had to disengage. The Spit may have been disturbed by other LW fighters, because he did not pursue me.
The engine was running rough, but I was only losing altitude gradually and I eventually made it back to France and landed safely at Theville, the engine seizing just after touch down, before I could vacate the runway. I sat in the cockpit and watched as Boyesee and Lee returned.

This was a long and exhausting flight. I managed to score minor damage on two Spitfires but nothing serious.
I landed back at Theville at 13.39 with 30 Litres of fuel left.

-South of SelseyHurricane-No
We took off for the first time as the 7. we were a good bunch of very good pilots, and everything went smoothly. We followed the bombers zigzaggin over them, when we suddenly spotted them getting attacked by hurricanes. We dove i following Atreides, for a good while until he did a combination of very tight turns that lead to me getting behind and when he went into a cloud i lost him. I flew a bit away from the fight when i spotted a few hurris fighting.

I dove in not getting a good pass for about 1 minute. Suddenly i realize someone is on my back and i cannot see any other planes than the hurri infront of me and the hurri behind me. I broke off and went for a cloud in which i dove in and out of 2 or 3 times. When i came out i could see none so i went looking for the bombers i now realised i had forgot to defend, and i could hear my squadron fighting near them, so after 20 seconds i spotted them and tried to go to them.

Suddenly 2 hurricanes dove out of nowhere infront of me flying like they simply had not seen me, these must be the ones i was fighting. I put the throttle to the max and put WEP on i make sure i am under the last one so i keep out of sigt. Slowly but surely i get closer until i am about 100-200 m i start firing with all my weapons, but shoot above him. The hurri did not even move the slightes when i stopped firing and starting aiming again, my choice of no tracers seamed to have been the right choice. As i fired my second burst i hit the mark... exsplotions apeared all around his cocpit and on the wings. as i stopped firing the aircraft slowly rolled to the right and started a dive, that resulted in a spin the aircraft flew as no control imputs were put into it, and after a while i saw him splash into the ocean.

The other hurricane where nowhere to be seen so i just continued to the bombers. At this point they were over Selsey. I spotted some planes that seamed to be fighting so i dove down. Took a couble of potshots on some spitfires but saw no hits, when i spotted a spitfire behind me, over the radio i heard that there should be some freinds here but i saw none. After a good 1 minute my plane suddenly caught fire. I instantly pulled the eject cannopy and jumped out following the cannopy down with me. As i pulled the parathuce it did nothing the fire must have even though i only was in the plane for 1 second burned it. So i fell from 1k landing in the ocean killing me instantly...

Status: Ditched aircraft in the Channel, a few miles off of the French coat, after a bullet perforated my water radiator. Pilot alive, but a bit wet, rescued by friendly ASR.

Flew in 1st Schwarm with Pitti, Obermann, and Javelina. I was Javelina's wingman, as part of the 2nd Rotte. Grouped up with the bombers off the coast of France, and made our way across the channel. Once there, got in a bit of a scrap with some Spitfires. My plane's water radiator was shot, and I had to make my way back across the Channel. I was forced to ditch the plane a few miles off of the coast, and was picked up by friendly search and rescue.

(Apologies for the less-detailed post this time around. I'm both tired and lazy.)

I had been telling Hitler for over a year, since my first flight in an Me-262, that only Focke Wulf Fw-190 fighter production should continue in conventional aircraft, to discontinue the Me-109, which was outdated, and to focus on building a massive jet-fighter force. - Galland
Any idiot could fly a Spitfire, but it took a lot of training to fly a 109. - Gerald Stapleton
