Congratulations Loopy... Ace in a Day! Well done!

Butzz and Luft... your families will be proud of your selfless sacrifice  😪

I'm honored for the Max and will gladly accept it but I feel I had a bit of an unfair advantage over the other 2 seat pilots. I've been flying exclusively as a bomber puke for the last many missions (I forget for how long) where there is the opportunity to rack up lots of kills in one session as opposed to those doing recon, spy, prison rescue or General capture. Those are pretty much one point missions with a great amount of risk.

It also helps to have flight members who are Flak magnets who will sponge up the AAA while I get to waltz in for the kill (thanks Butzz  😉).

I'm really in awe of those who got the Max in air to air... 

That being said... Thank You!

I will wear it proudly.

Salute!

To the O Club for beers all around (enlisted ranks are welcome for tonight)  🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷
