GENERAL REPORT:
I was No. 2 to S/Ldr. Pisarek when 7 Me's were sighted flying in formation of 2, 4, 1. When S/L. Pisarek gave the order to attack, I followed him down and he engaged the port A?C of the leading pair. I gave a short burst to the starboard one, and as I was doing so, saw the single A/C flying at the tail of the formation, turning to starboard; I got on his tail and dived on him, gave a long burst, the E/A turned on his back and crashed into the ground. were the wreckage was thrown in all directions. As I then heard the order to fly low, I weaved and wound my way back to the channel and flew back to base.
