Well I've played a couple of missions over Central America with my new copy of Hornet Leader (purchased on eBay). Excellent fun - this game lived up to all my expectations and more.

It did seem fairly easy to notch up a Success on both missions. The Migs weren't a serious threat, and although I had a couple of close things with SAM defences we all got home safely.

I had one confusion with the rules - I wasn't sure if POD effects just apply to the plane, or to the group. I gave myself the benefit of the doubt, but on reflection think I was mistaken about this. So this probably gave me an unfair advantage.

Anyway, I'm delighted with this game. It's right up there with other solitaire classics like "RAF" and "Blackbeard"!
