Excellent job covering the airborne assault by the British Airborne Division and hitting the enemy airfield at Lentini.  The British have captured the Primosole Bridge and the Lentini airfield and are now fighting their way toward the town of Catania.

The group destroyed over 40+ enemy aircraft in the air and on the ground during the airborne drop.

Today we welcome the arrival of the B-25 medium bomber to the group.  We'll be using this aircraft in today's mission.

Today we've been tasked to attack the port and airfield at the capital city of Palermo, grid  BX-27 on your map.



Enemy air cover is expected to be high.

AAA is of medium strength for this area.

I’m working at the polls today. I should be home in time for a normal mission start. If not, I’ll only be a few minutes late

That railyard directly adjacent to the port, is that considered part of the port and 1st's target or is it the responsibility of 2nd?

Just making sure, it was possible the train and vehicle convoys that were 2nd's targets were farther afield and that the railyard was part of the "port".
