Naaa... he'd let the MiGs go, MitIf he'd claimed to be RAF, we'd get a story of how he was a Tonka pilot, helped another shell-shocked pilot land after an engagement, and got accepted to a prestigious dogfighting school after said pilot gave up.
After a few weeks of stiff competition against other pilots, he suffers a catastrophic engine failure and has to punch out, and his nav dies as a result.
After still managing to do enough to graduate, he gets scrambled to another engagement against the Russians, where he downs two MiGs. He then becomes an instructor. The end.
