    Default Iwo-Jima night mission: Martin PBM 5A Mariner (FSX)

    Here's the story: After the Dutch Marine lost the battle at the Java Sea, the "leftovers" joined the American forces to fight the Japanese. This Mariner was assigned to investigate the situation at sea near Iwo-Jima, 2 American destroyers attacked a Japanese armed cargo ship, it's on fire but still floating. the Dutch will have closer look and will report about this ship.

    Looks like the destroyers did a good job, this vessel is abandoned and will sink any minute with all these explosions..

    Nice shots Jan!! It's so unusual for you to make a water landing BY INTENT! That it makes a nice change of pace.

    Thanks very much Michael! I crossed my fingers at the landing and hoped this Mariner was a real float plane....

    Great story! Was it 1941, or 1945?

    The battle on the Java Sea was in 1942. The Dutch tried to protect their Colonies (Indonesia) as the British tried to protect their territories. Not very succesfull......

    Yes, that way I understand. That was after Pearl Harbour, and then you made a ellipse in time down to 1945!
    I was thinking on the other hand: your colonies were at the other end of the world, weren't they (compared, for example, to our North Africa, for example)
