Just Midair Bombed a (tier 3) - Potez 540 with my (Tier 3) - Blenheim IV (e) Bomber.

Knowing the Potez 540 is a slow flying bomber, and we both were heading in the same direction towards a neutral Airbase, felt it was possible.

It was just a matter of time before the Blenheim IV (e) Bomber. would catch & fly over his slow bomber.

We both were at approx. 5,000', and as my bomber overtook his with a separation distance of 250 to 500 ft. opened the Bombay Doors.

Let loose of the4 bombs and his bomber exploded in midair and ......got confirmation of a good kill.:playing:

Still considered.it a lucky kill, was just in the right place at the right time for it all to come together.

Anyways....for those who don't know about Midair Bombing, you do know now. :medal:

You have to die while doing it. It's called sacrifice for the video.
