Bring reality home.
Got (air Start )96 now pretty sure 108 is go.
What size area should they be fitted in?

Pattern now 2 squardons.
1st.) 48 in 12 groups ; 4 to a Flight Stacked 4800 up 75 apart.
2nd) 48 in 16 groups; 3 to a Flight 12 groups stacked starting in front of (1st) 4800 up 75 apart and
4 groups flying separte under the high flights..

Was there separate Bomb target formation?
What should the formation pattern look like?

I can't hear you over the bombing!?!?.
