The first pair hits the ridge-line targets with their remaining bombs, and launch salvos of rockets for good measure, enough to start a moderate forest fire one one of the hilltops.
The Jake is now airborne and is on station to observe any activity.
As the first pair of Invaders flies away they communicate the second pair is inbound; ETA ten minutes.
The pair of Cambodian biplanes flies close to the ridge, filming, and taking stock of the effects of the bombing run. Suddenly, the leading aircraft veers erratically toward the east, rear machine gun chattering. Over the radio, the crew is hysterical, ranting about intense heat and a giant worm breaching the earth to engulf the moons in the sky.
Weaving like a dying bird, the plane makes a path straight for the river - looking to be on a direct course to impact La Reine de Saigon.
OOC: So we are a day into our jungle trek to the patrol base? Or did the Invaders get ahead of schedule?
