Chapter 5: Battle of the Rhine (February 8 – March 28, 1945)

Here are the map sizes, for comparison:

Stalingrad Map: ~140x225 miles ~31500 sq.miles
Moscow Map: ~175x155 miles ~27125 sq.miles
Kuban Map: ~180x260 miles ~46800 sq.miles
Bodenplatte Map: ~250x200 miles ~50000 sq.miles

The good news is that 19 Squadron were based at Grimbergen Airfield from the 9th to the 28th of September 1944, before being sent to Britain again - so after all this messing around flying Kittyhawks over The Eastern Front we get to actually do something 19 Squadron did, for 11 days. Laughing

Just with the wrong type of Mustang... again... Rolling Eyes

Maybe they'll make the Mustang III as a collector's aircraft at some point. Razz
