Aircraft: BF-109 E-1
Markings: White 13
Aerodrome: Marquise East
Status: RTB, Aircraft and pilot safe and sound, ready to fight another day for the Reich! Now hosting the post mission debrief and party with our Staffel. Helga and Elsa have the beer flowing....(Our I & I).
Acting Staffelkapitän. 4th Staffel consisted of Javelina, Reiser, Malarky, Obermann, Hypoxia (2nd Schwarm leader), and Zyk.
Our Staffel took off in good order, formed up and headed Northwest to intercept the bombers over the Channel. Assumed the normal protective sweep overhead. Zickzack links, dann rechts , dann links, und wieder rechts. Our Gruppenkommandeur called out for the Staffel to maintain 4K above "the herd". Und natürlich haben wir eingehalten , wie bestellt
Obermann had some technical computer issues, but was able to restart, and then shortly after, he was able to get his crate over into England proper.
Went feet dry over England and continued to maintain Staffel flight order. About 20km into England, saw Hurri's making high speed run's into the front of the bombers. Called out to our Gruppenkommandeur that the bombers were under attack, and that 4th staffel was vectoring in for the counter attack, heading in from the East at 1K above 'em.
Managed to break up a part of the Red attack. Heard via Pitti, that the 5th Staffel was tangling with Spitfires at higher altitude, so the 4th Staffel continued with the onslaught hitting the "cows".
In the ensuing conflict, Malarky, Obermann, and Zyk had to deal with pursing Red b*st*rd's, along with radiator issues, etc.
Hypoxia, Reiser, and I, still were able to press home the attacks. I managed to come up on the six of a Hurri, gave him a good spray of MG's, got a hit, but nothing fatal. He broke off his attack on the "cow's". If only I had cannons, I would've brought that f*cker down!!!
Continued to fly cover over the bombers, chasing off Hurri's wherever.
In short, managed to form back up with Hypoxia & Reiser over the Channel, near the bombers. Escorted them safely home, and put my E-1 back on base just fine.
Overall, (from a personal perspective), a great campaign day. Flew the E-1 all the way to London, tangled with the Reds, and managed to bring my crate back home intact.
Now hosting the post mission Staffel debriefing. Helga and Elsa helping with the I & I efforts.
