So I was playing in my Kaga today and was looking in the battle results screen and then I noticed something off.

It says 5 fighters lost but only accounts for 4. My mind wanders to thinking what happened to the guy. Perhaps he's out there somewhere, flying most honorably to pop in another map somewhere.

He's that Japanese soldier they found in the Philippines a couple of years ago, who thought the war was still going on.

Hey, its not WG's fault you can't keep track of your own stuff.  THIS is why we cannot have nice things!  You are always losing them.

He got lost and flew all the way there where he landed and prepared to take on the enemy again only later to be found and lost track of time.

Remember just like DDs are responsible for their torps YOU are responsible for your fighter and if he hits a teammate that is on YOU!

Friendly fire? Friendly strafe run?

Just went through the replay and no, I didn't strafe at all in the engagement.

lol, 

 

I just thought it was relevant that you posted about a poor AI pilot was lost. And I had read that article this morning about Irma washing up the remains of a pilot lost 50+ years ago.

Geez guy..TODAY!  He could still be alive. What map?  Grid coordinate?  Route?  We could get the community together and go search for him.

The Haven map, mostly over the islands where he hopefully swam to. Mostly the south-west islands are where I last spotted him in his squadron.
