Well five pages worth... But a Good read though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

"We're going along there on the deck. Of course, our Mosquitos were all black on the bottom; no markings on the undersides of the wings. And here we came up on a flak nest with 40mm, sandbags and plenty of Germans. It was a Sunday afternoon. I said to myself, 'Oh, no!' We were so low that we could see the unit emblems on their helmets. Ole Johnny Caine goes sailing over, and they wave at him! The Mosquito looked an awful lot like an Me 210 or 410. The soldiers waved, and I rocked my wings as I sailed over them and kept on going.
