26 MAY 2019 Riders On the Storm v2.5

Post by Hedgehog » Sun May 26, 2019 11:26 pm

VFA-41 was tasked with delivering JDAMs on pre-designated target coordinates, presumably where bad guys were.

The flight returned to recover in exceptionally poor weather conditions; a thunderstorm with heavy seas, high cross-winds and turbulence, and at night. Ceiling was less than 1000 ft; deep in Case III conditions. One aircraft crashed into the ocean on final approach in extremely poor visibility. SAR helo was launched, though no survivor yet located.

Dealer 1-1 - Hedgehog: tgts hit, trapped.
Dealer 1-2 - Shadow: tgts hit, crashed on recovery.
Dealer 1-3 - Lion: tgts hit, trapped.
Dealer 1-4 - Ticman: tgts hit, trapped.

MISSION SUCCESS. :1cool:
