SHOOTERS ODDS...GUNS BLAZING! With the sun behind you, make a pass, diving through the formation coming in from behind, one of two things will happen the formation breaks up and you might get a couple. On your next pass, come out of the sun again picking out damaged bombers. Easy pickins for the fighters if the bombers have no fighter escort. Chase'em all the way back to France.
