So I'm trying out the mistel, and head for the target bridge.. I give it my best line up and let it rip. It slightly misses the target, and skips across the river to land on the other side, unexploded!

To top that off, I try to shoot it to get it to blow up, and take a flak hit sending me right into the bridge destroying it!

I guess I got that backwards!

PS, I tried a mission to flip V1's, but they don't show up? - How do I get them? I did a search, but came up with a zillion hits, but none close to what I need.

Thanks!

The V1 rocket takes a while to launch. Just keep looking at the long poles on the airfield. If you see smoke erupting from them, the rocket has launched.

No, I mean they never showed up at all.
I flew at 8x for like 5 minutes, and they never showed up..

You probably missed it then, it can be very hard to see take-off. What V-1 did you use?

Hehe, you think THAT was funny?

A few days ago I posted my adventure in the Mistel, with pics. Lost my 190's right wing and the mistel's right engine over the target.

Limped it back home, bailed out.
