I never checked time in this game earlier, but the briefing screen of the previous mission said, that we took off at 15:00. Total mission time was given as 1 hour 15 minutes.
Mission 2 starts at 15:42. I'm beginning to think that naming the first pilot Emir "Killer7" Parkreiner was sort of fitting after all.

Today we go deep

I hate these missions. In the previous one I was only a short way away from the friendly territory. Here it's a long flight to the border (marked with the red line on the map). Bailing out on the enemy side makes you a POW and forces a game over.
We'll use the superpower, known as "strength in numbers"

The mission video

In which there is a Fagot on fire, and I miscount my guns.

Getting better. Yet we lost two planes, and provided the enemy with two more POWs.

Still, two air kills by the squadron show, that even though the Mustang is obsolete, you don't want to wander into its sights.
