The Rejects got together for their regular Paint and Chat session via Zoom. But this time we engaged in some dogfighting instead of painting.
Lee, Ian and Steve represented the RAF in their Spitfires. Meanwhile, the Luftwaffe were piloted by David and Ray. The German bombers were controlled by the umpire.
The starting positions were that the RAF were vectored in on some raiding DO17s with the mission to stop them from reaching the beer factory. The BF109 top cover were close at hand, but could appear from any of the yellow markers.
All pilots started as experienced. Their level could rise by getting kills. However, it could drop if killed. Killed pilots would reappear at one of the yellow markers.
The winners would be individual with the most points (2 per kill) and the side with the most points.

An enjoyable time seemed to be had by all.
With 2 points for a kill and modifiers according to finishing skill level, Ray (Luftwaffe) and Steve (RAF) were joint first with 3 points each.
Ian was last with -1 !!
Overall, the Luftwaffe won with 3 points to 2. The German fighters did their job of protecting the bombers.
