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

flight of 4, intercept mission south of the channel.

Spotted flight of 4 yaks and engaged. lost 2 109's, and 1 pilot in the scuffle due to a mid air. Charon managed to bail over the water. hopefully friendly boats will be the area quickly to recover him.

Remaining planes spotted 2 more planes and engaged. IDd as La5x1 and yak x1. both planes destroyed with no further casualties. yak gave us some trouble, seemed like an experienced pilot but using pincher maneuvers we were able to get behind him and get hits on him.
