From an Aces High recorded mission. The film viewer doesn't quite capture the head positions when looking around, but good enough to give an idea of what I saw. The flickering clouds is due more to the myriad game updates and changes since this film was recorded.
I instantly knew during the fight when I had won. Watching the film it seems just a split second, but I recall the distinct glee of knowing I'd removed a vital flight surface, and didn't follow him down.
