GENERAL REPORT:
I was attacked by 3 Me.109E's from astern at a range of about 500 yds. I made a sharp turn to port and found myself facing another Me. at a range of about 50 to 100 yds. I gave him a long burst after which I saw pieces falling from E/A. I then gave another shorter burst and the Me. started to loose height. I then gave him a third burst and the Me. dived down in flames. I then engaged an Me. 109E on the port side and at 200/250 yds, but did not see any results.
