|Found an account from civhb about a great mission with SAFD participation:
Just a ramble
Just logged off from another most awesome impressive display by Pilots of 61 Wing with a few friends coming along.
Original Plan was was to Clear Andenne of a heavy ea presense. Formed up on Vitry with pilots of 40 Comm, SAFD & 61 Wing "Friends" - total of 9 or so spits.
After a good ingress to TA with good formation and SA displayed by all we proceeded to set up CAP at 6-10k over town. Quickly the con's were called through as 3 09's appeared to the east of the TA while another 09 appeared 2 minutes later. Within 3 Minutes all 09s were dead with only bbb332 taking slight damage and having to RTB (he made it with 1 kill).
We had a few high 09s attempt to pick us off but good SA and 6 calling ensured no-one was bounced and the 09s were chased away.
After Clearing the airspace over andenne with the groundpounders wondering on objective "where have all the ea gone" we decided to set a new TA of Verviers AF to shutdown any further EA ib.
Once arriving over Target We preceeded to completely stop/kill the EA flow lifting from verviers. Every so often high 09s attempted to clr us after they lifted from Aachen but once again they were killed or chased off for no lose.
After approx 20 minutes and another approx 11+ kills between us I asked for the flight to RP and rtb.
Unfortunately Chat server was lost at that point.
Even so majority of the flight kept together without comms all the way home and even landing as a flight on Brussels AF.
Until the server went down I would say we had approx 15 or so kills and NOT A SINGLE LOSS.
Once again a brilliant display of Teamwork and pilot skill by all within the flight and I thank all that joined us.
Per purum tonantes! BLAM BLAM BLAM!
