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

I woke up today wanting to get some good action. It's been a while since I was solo on a flight, so I checked the mission board and found a recon mission early in the morning. The weather was bad and visibility was low. My recon took me over the northern and eastern parts of the lines. Most of the flight was uneventful besides the occasional AAA site. Eventually, I spotted 3 aircraft over Krymskaya heading towards enemy lines. Engaged and shot two Il-2s down. The AAA was so heavy I had to fly at tree-top level to keep alive. After I disengaged I headed back to friendly likes only to find a flight of Yak-s above me. I engaged and a friendly group of 109's arrived to help relieve some of the pressure. I ended up getting one initially, but that last Yak was a good pilot. He managed to 1v3 us and shot down another 109 in the process. I eventually hit him in the wing and lit him on fire.
