You know, the runway was very icy.
And I had to get two guys to really get me
in the right direction so I could start.
And when I got in the plane.
It was up.
Just turning north.
I heard over the radio, "Flag over Tromsø".
It took me approximately 10, up to 10 minutes,
to to get to Tromsø from Bardufoss.
And I had to get height.
And when I arrived there,
the Tirpitz was already turning over.
So, I turned around flew back.
There's nothing I could do.
I couldn't see anything.
I couldn't see any planes anymore.
I thought if the Tirpitz is already turning over,
it's properly a few minutes ago
that the planes were here.
The properly pushed on
and flew back to the (mumbles), to the Reich.
So I made a terrible, and I accepted it.
So, when I said, "I had to get back to the airport."
And hoped that my (mumbles)
who had started so early, and maybe,
some of the Deine Squadden had been successful.
But for me, I said, "I better get back."
