Zone 1: England

Good weather
Logical brings Dreamsicle in, unaware that the tail wheel is inoperative until ebola calls up from the ball turret that it’s not down. Ebola evacuates the ball turret, and the crew prepares for a tail dragging landing. Sure enough, they aren’t disappointed as Dreamsicle comes in, trailing sparks as logical struggles to keep the plane from swerving. As Dreamsicle slows, logical politely steers off the tarmac to clear the runway for other B-17s. Dreamsicle is easily repairable, and will be ready to roll when called upon again.

Aftereffects

None

Red, White, and Blew by You enters a rare vortex of bad luck, as all five attacking planes score hits!

Fw scores 1 hit
-superficial damage to nose

Fw scores 1 hit
-superficial damage to bomb bay

Fw scores 6 hits
-waist – port waist gun is knocked out
-superificial damage to port wing
-superficial damage to #2 engine
-#1 engine is hit in the oil tank, and bursts into flames. Go bo hits the engine’s fire extinguisher, and it appears that the fire is going to be under control. However, the engine seizes.
-starboard wing flap is destroyed
-superficial damage to starboard wing

Fw scores 1 hit
-superficial damage to pilot compartment

Fw scores 3 hits
-superficial damage to tail
-waist – the ball turret takes a hit, and cdcox sustains a light wound to the left upper back
-#3 engine is hit, and explodes!

In the blink of an eye, Red, White, and Blew By You is doomed. The plane goes into a flat spin, plummeting downward with two engines out and fires in both wings. Lattimer and go bo yell to bail out, but there’s too much noise to hear, and the bailout alarm isn’t working.

Engineer voyager (13) and Tail Gunner TheFly (13) are the first to bail out. They float down directly into the middle of a small village, and Germans are waiting. They have no choice but to surrender immediately.

Bombardier KCJohnny (13), Left Waist Gunner Nightfyre (1), and Radio Op. munkey (13) hook up on the ground after they hit the ground. The trio works together and stealthily heads north, hiding during the day and traveling at night. For 8 days they make good time, but it gets more difficult as they reach the north coast. At the coast, they confer and, lacking any Underground contacts, decide that their only choice is to steal a boat. They hatch a plan, but on the way to their dock of choice, have the bad luck of encountering a German patrol head on. No chance. They surrender, and their story of being downed fliers is not believed. Stood up against a wall, they are informally executed without a trial.

Right Waist Gunner tk13 (1) bails out, and lands alone. Not sure of his location, he picks a direction and walks straight into a squad of Germans who are looking for him.

Pilot Lattimer (13) jumps out into the clear blue sky, and lands softly, with the barking of German Shepherds not far away. He’s off like a shot, and makes it almost ten miles before the dogs and their handlers catch up to him, exhausted and out of luck.

Navigator Redcoats58 (13) was trapped in the nose until he had the good fortune to be thrown through the plexiglass. Stunned and seriously injured, he instinctively managed to open his parachute, but is found unconscious 11 hours later by a German patrol. Off to the stalag.

Copilot go bo (13) at first attempted to go back and let the crew know to bail out, but found himself pinned against a bulkhead by the centrifugal force of the spin. Stuck inside the plane, he inched himself out inch by inch, the g forces rising. At the waist, the open hatch beckons, and he eventually makes it there and is sucked out. Pulling his cord, he floats downward, coming to a quiet landing on a roadway. Immediately, a German soldier appears, and out of instinct, go bo pulls out his survival pistol and fires. The German drops, a fatal shot to the neck spurting blood. Go bo looks around. Nobody else is around. Dragging the dead man into a copse of trees, go bo emerges ten minutes later wearing a German uniform. From that point on, he’s a German soldier, using his scrip to buy a train ticket to Monaco, and then making his way to the Swiss border. A week later, he shows up back in camp sporting a new wristwatch and some mighty fine chocolate for the bar ladies.

Ball Turret Gunner cdcox (13) is the last to bail out, having to put on his parachute during the spin. He dives out the door, noticing go bo inching along when it’s too late to help, and floats downward. A German halftrack awaits to take him to his new home for the next two years.

Red, White, and Blew By You becomes a statistic, and will fly no more.

it probably took 5 minutes to undress the german and get into his uniform...

so what was go bo doing for the other 5 minutes, anyway?



oh wait, i'm go bo...

but i still wonder what he was doing with that undressed dead german soldier for 5 minutes... NTTAWWT :D

Crap, I'm dead yet again. This time my bad luck was capable of bringing down our most experienced unit. I must have some special luck. Who wants me to be on their crew next?

Is anyone keeping track of who's died the most times?

2 Mes miss, break off attack

In his first move as acting pilot, bwana makes an easy decision. Both he and the pilot are wounded, two other crew members are wounded, and three others are without heat. This mission is over before it began after the Pearl Harbor-like attack. Bwana swings the plane around and drops down to 10,000 feet. Joesomebody moves to the radio room temporarily to call out an abort and radio back to base to bring ambulances quickly.

Zone 1: England

As luck would have it, the weather is poor, with rain falling and winds picking up. Bwana has a problem in that he can’t use the rudders with his injured left foot. SDchiefsfan moves to the pilot’s seat, gingerly removing htismaqe, and 58Forever moves up from the bombardier position to the top turret gun. Bwana gives SDChiefsfan instructions on how to apply the rudders if and when they’re needed. He lines up on the runway and brings the plane in, which unfortunately takes a gust right as it’s landing. “Left!” Bwana calls, and SDchiefsfan applies a left rudder. The two attempt to team in the landing, but it simply doesn’t work. Flyin’ Doublewide swerves and bucks and runs off the runway, it’s landing gears collapsing in the mud. Fire trucks scream to the scene, but there’s no fire and the plane is deemed repairable. It’s towed back to the hangar as the crew either walks back or rides in an ambulance.

Aftereffects

Sadly, htismaqe lingered for 7 days in the hospital, but perished on the eighth. KC Dan was stabilized, but sent home on the Queen Elizabeth to sit out the rest of the war.

Special Ed has a problem. With three engines, he can’t keep up with the formation as long as the bombs are in the plane, and so it would be suicide to try to carry them to the target. His choices are to turn around and abort, in which case Sack Time will have to return out of formation, or to drop his bombs and stay in formation. He chooses to drop the bombs, and lets seclark pick a target of opportunity. They drop the bombs on a railyard, but cannot observe whether they actually hit it. With the bombs gone, though, they can stay in formation and fly empty over the target.

Special Ed has a problem. With three engines, he can’t keep up with the formation as long as the bombs are in the plane, and so it would be suicide to try to carry them to the target. His choices are to turn around and abort, in which case Sack Time will have to return out of formation, or to drop his bombs and stay in formation. He chooses to drop the bombs, and lets seclark pick a target of opportunity. They drop the bombs on a railyard, but cannot observe whether they actually hit it. With the bombs gone, though, they can stay in formation and fly empty over the target.

-superficial damage to port wing

tommykat cuts power to the engine, but it’s not completely successful. The engine slows to an idle, but continues to turn the propeller. The resulting drag slows down Fooooo Fighter drastically, and the plane starts falling back in the formation.

2 Mes circle, attack again

Kcnut fires, misses
El borracho fires, misses

Me scores 2 hits
-pilot compartment – amnorix takes a light wound to the right shoulder
-tail – autopilot out. Naptown chief will have to pilot the plane manually through the bomb run.

Me misses, breaks off attack

Me circles, attacks again

Kcnut fires, damages Me109
Amnorix fires, misses

Me scores 1 hit
-superficial damage to pilot compartment

Me breaks off attack

The crippled Fooooo Fighter reaches the target a bit late, at the very rear of the formation and still falling back. With no autopilot, Naptown Chief does the best he can to put the plane over the target area without movement.

Entering Bomb Zone
Bad Weather – Heavy clouds
Medium Flak - misses
Kcnut does a great job of planting the mission’s final bombs on target – 30% score

As the plane turns to go home, the other bombers have now moved ahead and are pulling away. Fooooo Fighters will attempt to get home alone. The plane will be a sitting duck until they can get fighter cover.

Zone 1: England

Poor weather – cloud cover
Naptown Chief brings Fooooo Fighter to a safe landing, and he and tommykat struggle at the controls as the pesky #1 engine won’t shut down. With no landing gear brake on one side, they also can’t stop the plane, and it rolls down the length of the runway and crashes into a large barricade of tires. The crew bails out (other than the injured kcnut), but the fire crew arrives and ensures that there is no risk of fire. Fooooo Fighters will live to fight another day.

Aftereffects

Kcnut is sent home, with the part of his brain responsible for language severely damaged.

He could have just said that you failed to provide the celebratory booze for one of our "after mission parties" and the crew took you out. :p
