 The Airbats are back! Everyone's Favourite Aces take to the skies again!

                          801ST T.T.S. AIRBATS
                              2ND STRIKE

From haunted hot springs to deadly airborne duels, the 801st Aitbats take
on all-comers. A restful holiday is hardly that when the hot spring turns
out to be haunted. Even worse, it's the dead of winter, the hotel is snowed
in and Sgt. Saginomiya insista on having Karaoke parties! Having survived
a week long sing-along, plating host to the world famous aeronautical
acrobatics team of the USAF should be childs play for the Airbats. But the
skies over Japan become a battleground one more when the lovely captain of
the Thunderbirds challenges Mitaka to a head to head showdown!
