I. I was flying Number two man of Swindle Yellow flight at about 28,000 feet. I pursued an Me 410 toward the Alps. The enemy aircraft made a turn to the right after trying it once before and was attacked by several P-38's. I fired at a 20 degree astern, but about 900 yards range. The Me-410 turned left immediately after I fired a three second burst and was attacked by several P-38's. Smoke obscured my view of any results.
