I have to hand it to both of these pilots for how well they handled their planes right up until the end.  I was continuously surprised at how hard I had to push to get at them.  It would have been a lot easier if the other 109 was a bit more in tune with what was going on.  He was indispensable as a distraction that allowed me more freedom in engaging but that was about it.

What are the odds of that happening?  You would think pretty darned slim; it's not like they were both on the tail of the same guy at the same time.

They were both chasing the other 109 as he was going vertical.  Not sure why the one I was chasing was going after him as he had no chance of getting a shot.  I was also pursuing him.  Both of the Migs were on comms but it seemed like they were having a hard time coordinating who they were after as they both seemed to engage the same guy all the time.  It worked well for them until it didn't.  I was just about ready to saddle up on one as I was growing tired of chasing them around.
