1944 14th April in Hampshire England, and the men of 418 Squadron frantically clear the fresh snow off their Mosquito FB. VI "Black Rufe"in preparation for another mission. Later that morning S/L Robert "Bob" Kipp (RCAF) and F/O Peter Huletsky (RCAF) set out with another Mosquito on a Day Ranger mission to Denmark. Over the Kattegatt, Kipp engaged two Ju 52/3ms fitted with minesweeping rigs and shot them both down, so achieving ace status.
