21 October, the eve of destruction

Post  MJDixon on Mon Oct 22, 2012 8:05 am

The war is not going well - our early gains and confidence have been reversed, and the seemingly weakened luftwaffe has a renewed strength and fierceness - it seems as though every time we go up we run into a flight of 5 - 7 of the yellow nosed blighters, and always above us - always diving down cannons tearing into us, today, flying with Dezey, I dove down on to the tail of one of the new 109 types that have been appearing at the front - I had at lest 5000 feet advantage over him - yet all he did was fly along calmly until he extended away, as if I were flying a Hawker Fury, not a front line operational Spitfire - we later ran into a flight of five of the boche swines, no such luck for us - fight or die, I lost my wing when 3 of them set on me - had to bail out over a forest, just my luck.

I only managed to bag one of the teutonic swines when he became so over-confident that he flew directly over our Airfield, alone - whilst I was gaining altitude over the field, even then I had to drag him kicking and screaming to the deck, and nearly lost him as he began to climb away - just as I fired my cannon rounds into his tail, tearing it off - back in '41 such kills came easily, now they seem to be cause for celebration.

There's talk about the place of a new Spitfire in development, one that can outmatch the new 109s - more power, more ammunition - I only pray that it arrives soon enough, or else there won't be any of us left alive to fly it...
