I happened to be playing at about 3AM (couldn't sleep), and just kind of lazing around in my Hurricane over Haybes, lookin' for EA to shoot. Think of me flying aorund in my cockpit with fries n' a shake, basically what I was doin'.

Then I saw a contact going low over the town, did a quick check on my map, saw an He 111 flying in. I just slipped along above him, he passed over town without dropping a thing. I followed him high for a little bit, then eased down on the throttle and went into a, lets say, 45 degree dive with a slight roll to the right, matching his turn a bit. I opened up as I closed, held the trigger for about a second and a half, and pulled away, watching out the back right to see if I got a kill.

The guy slowly nosed down into the river before dropping his salvo. ^^


The story of my first air kill of Campaign #45! I hope I'll have as much luck throughout the rest of the campaign!
