Pilot Name: I/KG26_Diesel Aircraft Type: JU 88-A4-41 1H+AK 4-500 SC Bombs 50% Fuel Target Duties: Enemy Units Targets Destroyed: 5 Tanks Mission End Status: Landed safe at home base Points: 200
Mission Debriefing: Took off from Schrunden first with Raven as second, weather was great, plane handled nice on the controls and headed 85 degrees, climbing to 1500 meters. Headed to main road between Olai and Januolane as recon had made notes that there could be enemy tanks there W-22. Otto spotted tanks just off the road and we made a direct bomb run at them.. We got lucky and hit 5 of them. Out of bombs I told Raven to have go at the rest of them. I stayed high to keep a look out as Raven started to bomb the tanks that were left. Raven made three passes hammering the hell out of them……….. THAN boom Raven’s plane went up in flames!!!!!!! They were all killed. What a loss, Walter and Kurt had never seen anything like that before. It was time to get out of there and go home. There were still one or two tanks left. Asked Alpha if he and Gray needed any help up at Riga, said no… so I made straight for home. We had just started for home when Kurt spotted four bandits closing fast V-W 22. Throttled up the engines to 110 % pitch 100% made a run for it, to late, two Yaks jumped us, Kurt, Walter, and Otto open fire with everything we had, as I did all I could to keep from being hit!!!!!! The Ivan’s made one pass, than another….that was it for them as my gunners had hit both of them!!!! Back on to a heading for home, rookies no more, we are all vets now. Flew back to home base without seeing anything else. Came in and made nice soft landing, second time. Did it for Otto Ha Ha Ha. That broken arm and leg still hurt like hell! We all went for a few beers to toast Raven and his crew, they will be missed.
Pilot Name: I/KG26_Alpha AircraftType:Ju88A-4 & 2 x SC1000kg 50% Fuel Target Duties:Serch and destroy Targets Destroyed:47 x Trucks 9 x tanks Mission End Status:Landed at Airfield Points:1535
Mission Debriefing: Schrunden airfield quickly dissapeared behind me as I followed Gray up into the skies of Kurland. I had been relieved of flight leading after running out of fuel last mission, so I had a less stressful mission this time up. We were going backto Riga where he had made an attack the week , this time I had a single drop of sc1000's that should make a mess of those Ivans. We arrived at Riga where Gray confirmed the factory on the east of the Riga river was full of trucks and tanks I asked if he was making a run at them but he put me on to the target first, I set up the Stuvi and nosed her over taking flak from 3 guns at least, as I pulled the bomb release lever the aircraft lurched up and everyone moaned as the payload left the plane we seemed to get some lift that left our stomachs behind. The gondola gunner confirmed a direct hit, and Gray made his bomb run to clear out any targets left behind he scored direct hits also.
Our other Ju88 flight of Raven and Diesel were in sector w-22 (Olai) bombing tanks where Diesel reported Raven had crashed with no survivours but the pair had been successful in attacking the armour there.
I seem to remeber Gray looking for other ground targets as I rtb'd to Schrunden where I made a safe landing and headed for the bar again.
