P/O John Wood (N2940) attacked two without apparent result, and was about to engage a third when he saw tracers passing his cockpit from the rear; "About five seconds later bullet hit the back of my hand which was holding the throttle, and either it or another bullet punctured the reserve tank, the petrol pouring over the back of my head and body making it impossible to see out of the cockpit.
