Every Pirate Scores

For the second frame of October's FSO, "Out of the Sun: Egypt 1942," the pirates have done it again. Taking off ten strong, VF-17 climbed to 28,000 and circled near the forward base that it was tasked with defending.

Contact was made with a massive bomber formation far below the squad, and the pack descended to intercept. After many individual air battles, the clouds settled to reveal that the Jolly Rogers shot down 19 enemy aircraft (17 bombers and 2 P-40 fighters). The squadron only suffered two aircraft lost and overall achieved an excellent performance. 

Every pilot either shot down an enemy aircraft or received a credited assist. Branch37, the squadron CO, and Kingpin scored 3 victories each, while Seighin bagged 4 enemy bombers. VF-17 looks forward to more virtual victories in the last frame of this month's FSO.

The pirates form up to prepare for another raid on enemy air formations
