Cheerio, Bit of Luck today. Posted to Cover Aerodrome down towards Calais. Mixed it up with two 2 seat types. The rest of my section was spread out so far I ended up attacking alone. By jove, they were so high and so fast I had to fire at 400-300 meters then reloaded and fired off my second 97 rd large drum from 400 meters by then they were almost out of eyesight.
