Today in my country is celebrated the day of the Brazilian Air Force and also Brazilian aviators. This date was selected due to an amazing act that FAB made in WWII, more especifically in October 22nd 1945, when the 1º GavCa "Senta a Pua" took off 11 times, totalizing 44 sorties... They found a big german tank column in Italy running away to Germany and a lot of them had been destroyed by our Thunderbolts. Congratulations to our pilots!

Multiple sorties per plane?

If so, this example could be useful in building a Movement to convince Oleg to code re~arm and re~fuel over BoB and Beyond--for AI planes as well as Player plane.

Another X~Treme Xample from Romania...
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>On 29 October the 8th Assault Group moved to the Chaplinka airfield. During the first days of November, the Romanian Henschel pilots practically saved the 24th Infantry Division, which was retreating followed closely by Soviet forces. They managed to fly about 15-16 missions per day each! No other Romanian group made as many sorties in one day, as the 8th Assault Group did then. There was always a patrul (Romanian for Schwarm) in the air covering the infantrymen. Thus they managed to rescue the lives of more than 10,000 men. Five assault aircraft were lost, as were two pilots. The other three were rescued by their comrades.
