An exclusive scenario imagined by Absurdbanipal :
On the blue waves of the Pacific, a lifeboat drifts with an unidentified pilot, each side having lost several aircraft in the previous days in this area.
Two rescue missions arrive on the scene together : the Japanese camp (Absurdbanipal) is composed of a single-engine Nakajima A6M2 Rufe seaplane (identical armament to the Zero, without a rear machine gun) and a Mitsubishi A6M2 Zeke, while the American camp (Monse) is composed of a Consolidated Catalina seaplane escorted by a Grumman F4F Wildcat fighter.
To recover the wrecked pilot, a seaplane must land as close as possible to the canoe (landing sequence from altitude 1 in three maneuver cards : Descent - Right Line - Stall), then wait 3 turns before putting a canoe overboard (materialized by a counter) and move this counter forward each turn by a distance corresponding to the diameter of this counter. The first rescuer to reach the castaway's boat wins the game.
The two seaplanes are beautifully painted Shapeways Armament In Miniatures by Absurdbanipal, as are the two sea mats.
The two camps start face to face at altitude 4 on the first mat, the lifeboat is placed in the center of the second mat.
