Another page in the life of 66 Sqdn during bloody April:
I have reached 17 April17 and came back alone from a balloon busting mission as my flight was bounced by 5 Albatros scouts. My poor Pup was riddled but the engine was working fine. I damaged 2 of the Albatros scouts, 1 trailing smoke as they headed east and I west with the controls of my Pup very much damaged. I managed to set her down at the closest friendly airfield, ammunition almost done, physically drained and very thirsty. Debriefing showed the whole flight of 4 survived, with a confirmed kill to our flight leader. 2 of my flight dustained injuries and have been hospitalized for 7 days. New pilots will fill the gaps for our next sortie. Bloody April continues.
