An Ace for an Ace

Zeroes and Wildcats flew over the Pacific last night…and the second ace of the campaign lost his life. Lining up for a shot on two Zeroes, Will’s newly minted ace got caught in the crossfire and was unable to bail out successfully. After several more game turns, Ken’s veteran pilot exacted vengeance on the Zero who got Will, and became the third ace of the campaign. My ace managed to shoot down another Wildcat and damage yet another, so Ken and Will had to beat a hasty retreat back to the carrier with their remaining planes. Later that night, several Japanese pilots flew over the area of the battle and dropped wreaths into the ocean in honor of their fallen adversary.
