    An interesting read, and i find it astonishing that these men were sitting in their cockpits over 8 hours on some of these missions.

    Shooting noobs at low alt.. but he was #2nd day green himself! Just, he got the full schooling before then.
    Difference between IL2 and reality is if it was online DF I'd go find a better server, IRL you do the mission you get.

    Yeah, hitting a trainer plane seems a bit brutal but i guess it counts.

    Sure made it sound easy but then i wonder how advanced the sites were by that time. Every plane he hit, he describes seeing fire and flames.

    Also they were later discovered to be Ki-84s.
    I thought it was a good read.

    Too bad we don't have an N or M in the sim.
