Sortie with Zebra 7/11/14

Post by Dukely on Sat Nov 08, 2014 12:10 pm

Just wanted to talk about my stupidity in my last flight so that It will be forever remembered.

Zebra arranged a fight with a rival pilot so we flew to meet up. I was stupidly just watching the fight and was just cruising along at low speed. Then the guy comes at me and blows a hole in my chest before I even had time to throttle up. He had me right at the start, I was going to slow, and not paying close enough attention. I was bloodied quite bad and couldn't see much. I just flew till I saw some green and hoped it was our side. I landed safely and didn't break the plane! So that was good. Anyway the lesson is ALWAYS LEAVE A NOTE! er...no.. I mean ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION!

welllllll. It just wasn´t the right day.. I had basically this idea to ask for a fight so that we could train a bit two-ship element in a fight. and we returned, both alive though, as no-ship formation.


The mission before was also not the most glorious example of how to do it..

I had the grafics set to extreme bloom, so I couldn´t see much against the sun in the east.. but I assumed that, since I wasn´t going full throttle.. people would stay with me for a coordinated flight.. well that change of plan back-n-forth inflight wasn´t help, too

here is what happened:


Pike: was actually captured!

Zebra: too
http://www.stats.syndicatesquadron.org/sortie/394906/

vade, too

while fokkerfrei crashed his plane but at least escaped:

4 planes lost, 3 men captured.. the reason why I ask for tight formations. then we can atleast all get flaked together ;=)

Ha I didn't know you guys were captured too. Well maybe Pike can get some help breaking out of a POW camp and returning to base. Otherwise I'll need a new pilot for this afternoon Razz

Once we were up we had a nice formation 2 strutters in a line with two noops high on either side. Then people slowly broke apart and I followed the person closest to me, which I though was Zebras Strutter. Anyway I was flying high and lost my escort in some clouds so I did some circles and looked around. I saw a noop mixing it up with some Ablies really low down. I valiantly intervened! I was immediately hit in he engine and had to ditch. Don't know why they keep giving me planes... Well I was so low at that point I knew I wouldn't make it across.
