This saw Rick face a mission where a Bristol F2B, escorted by a Sopwith Camel had to photograph a terrain feature and get off the table. Rick had organsied some fluffy paper clouds at various levels for the planes to hide in. My German force was Three Albatross. Two were on the table to start with, the third appearing once soa plane had suffered special damage.
After a few moves where nothing happened, battle was soon joined.
|An Albatross manages to get a burst off at the Camel. The other heads for the F2B.|
|The second Albatross is caught in a crossfire between the Camel and the F2B's tail gunner. It does get a long burst at the Camel in return.|
|The third Albatross appears. The F2B has almost completed it's mission without being intercepted.|
|The Camel fills an Albatross' sights. Great use of the Immelmann!|
|A close shave for the F2B.|
|A damaged Albatross limps back to base, to fight another day. The F2B escapes into cloud, evading the two remaining Albatross.|
|A second Albatross breaks off, not wanting to risk any more damage. The other Albatross manages a long range shot at the Camel.|
|After an Immemann, the Camel turns the tables on the Albatross.|
