Starshina Tuffy has now polished off AF 2 and 3 just one more to go, he is still keen to fly bombers.

Good show. One more to go. The A-20 is a fine bird.

I was thinking that we need 1 more bomber pilot to join our ranks.

Carpet bombing does require a fair number of bombers.

The A-20 does seem to fly particularly well on one engine. After nursing a 110 engine-out towards home and having it wallow like a cow (in winter, no less when she should fly best), a single engine A-20 without having the prop feathered and having lost the critical (left) engine hummed along in mid-summer with nary a care.

Yeah as long as you're careful and keep the speed above 135 mph. She flies well on 1 engine but this can lead you into a false sense of security as she gets a bit feisty on low speed approaches for landing, trimming helps with this though.
