Check Your Six WWII – Lone B24

Saturday the local HMGS-South group played a game of Check Your Six using 1/300 scale aircraft.

The scenario was a lone, damaged B24 bomber of the 12th Army Air Force trying to make it back to base in Naples, Italy in late 1943. The bomber was damaged by German AAA over Milan and could not keep up with the bomb group. The bomber was being harassed by six Me 109s. The scenario begins with the bomber coming into range of four P51 fighters based in southern Italy and the 109s closing in for the kill.
Two 109s were destroyed, one by a P51 and one by the bomber. The bomber was destroyed (blown apart by a critical hit) just before it could exit the battlefield.
