Mission Debriefing: Took off from Schrunden seventh, weather was nice, plane handled great on the controls and headed up the main road to Riga with Alpha, Oranje and MadJek. On the way up the road Alpha spotted Tank in T-22 heading up the road going like bat out hell. Asked me to take it out. 0n the first bomb run Otto Weber second pilot and bomb aimer missed, but than his broken arm and leg had,had only two weeks to begin to heal. Must have been in a lot of pain bouncing around in the plane. On the second run he hit it right on the nose. Out of bombs so asked Alpha if I could RTB, but he ask us to recon the main road U-V 23 sector. Seen nothing, so we turned for home. One of our 2001 fighter pilots flew by and did a wing wave and we did the same, good to see him!!!!! Otto was in a of lot pain. Flew back to home base with out seeing anything else. Came in and made nice soft landing, first time. Did it for Otto Ha Ha Ha. Our new replacements Walter Graf , Radio Operator, Rear Gunner and Kurt Steinhoff Rear Ventral Gunner got out and turned green…… these new guys are something else green and young!!! They are starting to send us kids.

I had the last plane on the runway today and watched all the Ju88's take off ahead of me. After a shallow climb to @1900m I set the Stuvi bombsite up and took over flight lead for Madjek Diesel & Oranje. We proceeded along a approx 80' heading along the MSR to Riga, as we were crossing into enemy territory we spotted a friendly aircraft passing us heading home at great speed at the same time I spotted a single tank under me in grid t-22 heading west, I made the decision to set Diesel on it and he made a successful attack and RTB'd. Madjek & Oranje followed myself up the MSR to Riga were we cut right to W-22 Olai avoiding the flak from Riga, I spotted nothing at Olai so sent Orange south to Matau MSR and Madjek and I went to Riga. I had an idea our enemy were stuck in Riga town so I had a good look in my binoculars and saw the centre factory with a bridge (X-24) had trucks and tanks there, I gave Madjek the attack order whilst I drew the flak, he made a great bomb run and we egressed south to where Oranje was calling he had found two tank columns, after some fast flying to V-21 sector Oranje reported he had destroyed the tanks so I called Madjek back to Riga with me to see if anything was left there. I noticed a flak gun firing as I made the turn north and told madjek to help Oranje destroy it as he was out of bombs. Last I heard was they had took out all but 1 car in the column as I headed back to Riga alone. I made sure I was as far to the east side of the target area in Riga to avoid the airfield flak, I found the same target area madjek had bombed and took a chance something was left there, I dialed up the Stuvi and pushed over the nose from 2200m and dropped 2xsc500's at the tanks there. After I pulled up from the attack 20mm flak started firing at my plane from somewhere, i took a look around and saw on the other side of Riga to the west was a column in between the town buildings, I quickly got to 1800m and took a left spiral climb to 2000m and nosed her over again dropping on the column with flak firing directly up at me. Both drops were successful so with no payload left I went to find Madjek over Mitau and made a strafing run on the single truck from earlier, no success though he escaped today.
Madjek bombed a bridge along the MSR and i turned for home. With Oranje & Madjek in loose formation we were heading aprox 270 I lost sight of both Ju88's but heard Madjek call in asking about landing at Fraulenburg instead of our home base at Schrunden, I had a message there was a fighter crash landed on the runway at Fraulenburg as was advising not to land there when both my engines died >>>>> OUT OF FUEL <<<<<. I was at approx 1000m alt and 1km out of the nearest airfield, I had forgot to check my fuel status after crossing the front lines, damn I was in trouble now I feathered the engines and saw the runway threshold of Fraulenburg in the distance, I made the best glide slope I though was going to get me there but i was sinking fast, decision to drop the gear or force land on the belly was made i had 260kph glide slope so i dropped the gear and left the flaps up, the runway came up fast and I made a touchdown halfway down the runway with the crashed fighter fast approaching me i slammed on the brakes and tipped her up braking to the left to clear the strip and avoid hitting the fighter.
The crew were cursing me all the way to the bar but were happy to buy the beers all night long.
Pilot Name: I/KG26_MadJek Aircraft Type:JU-88A4 [Loadout 2xSC500kg bombs 18x50kg bombs 75% fuel] Target Duties:Destroy tanks From Riga to Janischken [W-22ish] Targets Destroyed: 7 Tanks 24 Cars Mission End Status: Landed at Frauenberg Points: 880
I took off with the second flight of Ju-88's at Schrunden. Our order on the runway was Oranje (1H-AL), myself (1H-BL), Diesel (1H-CL), and Alpha (1H-DL). As we took off from the aerodrome, Oranje led us out on a slow right hand turn to a heading of 090. As we were forming up, Oranje called out that he was running at 85% throttle and 90% prop pitch. I adjusted my controls and formed up on Oranje’s 5 o’clock. Soon after this, Orange called out contacts on our 12 o'clock. It was determined that they must be friendly aircraft taking off from Frauenburg. As we continued on this heading, and passing Frauenburg aerodrome, Alpha moved to the front and took the lead of our flight. He brought us to an 80' heading and kicked the throttle up to 90%, while still keeping the prop pitch at 90%. Oranje slid into the #2 slot, as I moved to #3, and Diesel to the #4 spot in our formation. We continued moving easterly. As we did this, we again spotted a contact high on our 10-11 o'clock. It was a friendly fighter. Our formation was climbing to about 2000 meters. On our climb, Alpha spotted a single moving tank in the area of sector T-22. Diesel was in a good position to swing around and hit the poor tank. Diesel then turned west after his prey. Alpha, myself, and Oranje proceeded to the Riga area. We made a few quick course changes to get around the VVS airbase in W-24. (Alpha brought us around the base just out of the range of Ivan's heavy flak guns.) As we proceeded to target, Alpha had Oranje recon south on the MSR. Alpha and I went north to Riga. It was my first time seeing the city. It was an impressive sight from 2000 meters. The factories seemed to be hard at work, while the neighborhoods seemed to stretch farther than I imagined. But a quick check off my 11 o’clock reminded me of a job still left undone. The tracer fire alerted me that Alpha had found our target… Alpha spotted our target just between two factories. The tanks and trucks that were sitting in front of the buildings must have just come off the assembly line. Alpha began to draw flak for me as I set up the target off my port wing. Just as I was getting ready to dive I heard Oranje call out tanks in sector V-21 and I heard someone say, “Break, Break!” Oranje said he had found tank columns in sector V-21. Knowing the value of the 2 sc500kg bombs slung under my plane, he must have wanted to make certain we got all the tanks first before hitting “softer” targets. Nevertheless, I was given the command to hit the targets below. As I winged over left, I quickly picked up the targets below. (There was a large mass of them below. Even I couldn’t miss them!) I watched through my Stuvi, which I had set up earlier at 800 meters altitude and 450 km/h TAS, as the enemy AAA fired at me. I released my sc500’s bombs and a couple sc50’s then pulled out heading south. I joined back up with Alpha and proceeded to meet up with Oranje in V-21. When we arrived, in order to assist Oranje in destroying the 2 columns of tanks he spotted, we were told it was all clear. As we circled, and were getting ready to return to Riga, Oranje spotted an enemy column. Alpha dispatched me to assist Oranje in destroying the column. Since Oranje reported being out of munitions, he drew the flak. I made a run from north to south on the column and took out all but one truck. After hitting the column, Oranje and I reconed the area for more enemy tanks, going as far south as sector S-18. I received a communication over the radio from Alpha to go drop a bridge north of Mitau, so I headed to the target area. Upon arrival at the target, I noticed it had already been taken out. Oranje confirmed he had already destroyed the bridge when he took out the two tank columns. I then hit the next closest bride in V-21 key2. With the bridges in the area down, I headed back to base. I followed Alpha and Oranje west. On my way back to base, I dropped another bridge in R-21 key9. Since I had made it across friendly lines, I salvoed my bombs and counted off 6 sc50s. I continued west listening to the radio transmissions, as Alpha’s plane ran out of fuel and landed safely at Frauenburg. Hearing that he made it in safely, I turned to make my approach on Frauenburg. I landed safely and headed to the officer's club, where I heard the JG2001 pilots where buying rounds of drinks!
**Excellent Flight Leading by I/KG26_Alpha. Our flight was always in communication and pointed in the right direction. S! Alpha.

I took off from taurogen AF with my 3 AIfighters. I had a boring flight untill I saw one Il2 heading to Taurogen. We attacked and shot the Il2 down. Then i flew to Schaulen and watched for Jg2001_Mrud & Jg2001_Rasputin how they doin their work. I flew to Janischken to check the streets for coloumns and tanks. I found two car coloumns in the south from Janischken and began my attack run. I got 2-3 cars and one flaktank, but then one Bullet from the flak hit me and destroyed my elevator and yawrudder . So i flew carefully back to Frauenburg and tried there my emergency landing with a lot of luck i survived only with the body of the plane :S. My squadmates did a great job at Kaulen (with Ju87b). And the Ju88 got some tanks. We lost two pilots, one was shot by an >tank< And Kg26 and friends did a great job, very nice. So we look forward to next mission! S!

As freelance pilot i was drop in the nr 1 plane by Redcoat as a joke. The Poor Kg26 Commander dint like it buht he was to late to chance it , so we started the plane`s and i lead the formation from Schrunden Airbase till I/KG26_Alpha took over the lead. As Madjeck reported i spotted 2 plane`s on 12 , i got the messige from Aircontrol that it most have been the 2 Ju52 transports. Soon i spotted a singel smoking fighter on my 3 heading for home base , the poor pilot i hope he made it. On grid T-22 just over the front line, Alpha spotted a singel tank and he gave I/Kg26_Diesel the command to atack it. We head to riga wihtout spotting any more tanks or collums on the main road. Alpha gave the command to split up in two groops and recon the aria West of Mittau and East off riga. I had to Mittau as i was a the black sheep of the SQD , hehehehe. Soon i spotted two tank collums near mittau at the nord side off the town. Lucky me , the collums where just before a bridge so i call out fast a report of the position and nummbers , than i atack the first collum and hit two tanks. On my second atack i waited till the last two tanks of the first collum where on the bridge , as i know that my SC50 were not able to harm a tank. On that moment i dropt my two pairs on the last part of the bridge and i distroyd two more tanks. Now it was the turn of the second tank collum. I turn my plane and recon the situation , the Second collum was still moving to the bridge, so i turn my plane i to position for a second atack on the bridge. I waited on the moment that the last tank drove on the bridge and i dive bomb the bridge and drop all my bombs on tha last collum. I got tham all the blody stupped ivans , that learn tham to deal wiht the UberDutchman. To my supprice my tailgunner call out that one tank escaped , huh how is that possible???. He soon anser that the last tank was sinking in to the river , the tank most have driving from the bridge in to the river. I turn my plane again and gave my gunner the order to shoot all tank personel that try to escape from there burning/sinking Hell. On that moment i reported to Alpha that the tanks where distroyd and no need for support anymore. He soon gave the order to proceed recon and i dint have to wait long. Under my nose we spotted a supply collum and i reported that i was empty, So i supported I/Kg26_Madjack with his atack on that collum. He distroyd it , exept one truck. Madjeck me and alpha proceded the recon , in to the direction for home. We dint spotted any more targets , and i slipt away to the west side near the cost , to recon the costal road , buht that was empty to. So i Heading for home base and moments later we got a SOS from Aplha , He ran out off Fuel and had to glide in to the nearest base. We followd him to safty and i was the last plane to land on Frauwenburg Lufwaffe Base. Home of the Great JG2001 SQD. I most report that the fighter boys diht had done a great job by making the target aria , clear off enamy fighters.
Now lets cut off riga from the Souht part before the end off the year. Go for it. S! Oranje
