After Action Report

Debrief: Our mission was to assess the air defenses while destroying targets of opportunity.  We found the flak to be moderate but inaccurate and managed to set the harbor front afire. Nearly everyone was on the score board -- even sinking a hospital ship [oops]. It was nice to have all active pilots flying tonight.
