I had to cut mission 13 short due to thunderstorms.

Mission 14 was a balloon busting task with all 5 of us. As I expected we didn't make it to the front when I saw the flight below and in front of me change course. Nieups attacking, looks like 3, I join and help sending off one, then another which I later take out with a close to head on attack putting out his engine.

I look around to see no one left and head for home. Closer to home black flak smoke tells me enemy ahead. Turns out he was chasing one of us home. Both planes were seen as smoking wrecks when close to home. Debriefing shows all died but me. Now grounded due to lack of pilots.
