Lost Yellow 3 in take-off accident.

Sighted two sets of contacts. Engaged 3x P-39s. Yellow 12 was hit immediately in head-on pass and RTB. Turned and immediately acquired two P-39s. Dove with one, shot him up heavily. Stab < called a contact coming for me; I dragged him and saw Stab blow him to pieces.

Re-engaged my smoking P-39; but he belly-landed before we got a shot at him.
