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

Sloppy merge with 5(?)x Russian fighters -- nearly got shot in the head on. Blew through and engaged... White 3 broke off, I switched to his wing, but wound up overhead and announced I was breaking off. Chaotic furball all around. Got guns on one La-5 which I shot up, left leaking fuel; it split-s'd and dove, and I opted to stay high. At some point white 3 went down.
