Just think about the latest Pearl Harbor thingy....why have a dogfight over Pearl Harbor when it never happened in reality?
Actually the 46th and 47th Squadrons engaged and shot down at least 10 a/c (Welch 4; Rasmussen 2; Brown, Sanders Sterling and Taylor one each
No encounter reports so I have no idea whether any actually were shot down over Pearl Harbor. Welch was the US's first ace shortly afterwards (before O'Hare)
I want them real. 12 O Clock High was the closest for me in the air - Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan for ground.
