As the early morning dew glistens over the dawn drenched airfield, the silence is shattered by the crackling of allied fighter engines. One by one they take their turn to break free from the earth and once again do battle in the skies above.
Taking the Camel and SE5 I planned a pincer movement to take her Dr1 and Pfalz by surprise. All went well until the Pfalz mis-judged her rate of turn cutting through my SE5 lower wing outer spar resulting in a heavy damage card for me. I was also getting strafted rather badly in my Camel and thinking of returning to base when luck would have it and her Dr1 took an early bath with a double draw of damage cards. I swung my SE5 in from the west and took up a strafing position into the early morning sun. Half blinded I battled on whilst my Camel swung in from the north. Her Pfalz was taking no prisoners. Incensed by witnessing the loss of her fellow ace, she flew head to head, sensing the fragility of my Camel. Both aircraft in range, both pilots open fire. My damage card revealed a miss but as I prepared to pull hard left I watched in amazement as her Pfalz exploded in midair by the turning of the card name which cannot be spoken. The good old Tommys won the day but the war roles on. Although I was credited with downing 2 German aircraft The Baron survived the crash and I expect I will be dualing with him in the near future.
