General Report ..................................................................................................................................................................... (6.)

Our mission today was to cover some shipping off the coast of Novoroskiya bay. We were en route when we were jumped by a flight of P-39s. White 3 was hit instantly and had to bail. Very lucky considering the size of the cannon he was hit by.

We then had to go defensive against 4-5 aircraft diving n us. We are heading back to Anapa when a friendly group of 190 helped us out and we were able to turn back around and engage.
