That was a quick 20 minutes!
New Pants Needed!
After flying for just about 40 minutes after being heavily damaged I made it back to base and came oh so close to doing it all correctly…
The mechanics watches in disbelief…
Was it something you said ??

I fly two sorties in this mission. At one point there were over 50 aircraft in the air which caused some server issues. It was one of the most action packed missions we have flown in quite some time.

Oohh…that was nasty.
Ouch! That’s a bad bit of luck
Well that’s certainly going to have an effect on their timetable and damn unlucky with that AAA gun
The proverbial golden BB. Was that a re-attack, or were you just a late tail end Charlie?
What you see is the first pass for everyone and I was the 5th one to hit the target. The first 4 woke that flak gun up and ticked it off and it was more than ready when I went through.
You do not see it happen since I stopped the recording just a little bit too soon but the gun that took me out was itself destroyed about 20 seconds after it hit me. You can see a tracer round coming in from the right side of the screen just as the video ends.
