WING AND A PRAYER: PILOT TO CREW: Men we gotta finish this mission We've been hit by flak and number two engine has been shut down and one is giving us trouble and were losing fuel. NAVIGATOR TO PILOT: He's been busy checking his various electronic displays, the navigator checks his ground speed indicator and relays information to the pilot. NAVIGATOR TO PILOT: Rusty, have Kelly the (Flight Engineer) transfer fuel from number two to the other engines. We should be able to make it to our primary target reference November, X-Ray, One Zero, Eight. THE NAVIGATOR CONTINUES TO INFORM THE PILOT: I've worked out our fuel loss per minute, and we still enough fuel to make it to our primary and secondary targets, but we will not make it to base and have to ditch and pickup at. Tango Delta: Grid Coordinates Zero, Zero, Three, Six, Niner. Our fuel loss has increased and now have Thirty-Eight minutes of flying time left, this will not take us to the primary or secondary... PILOT TO BOMBARDIER: Leo, what's the nearest target of opportunity.... I THANK THE EDITOR/WW2DB FOR ALLOWING ME TO LEAVE THIS SCENARIO..
