The large colored dots on the map above represent the targets for the missions, as indicated on the key at the left. Smaller dots of the same color represent other places named in the description of the mission. Lines of that color indicate the flight from the base (which is represented by a red star) to the target. If points along the flight path are mentioned in the Journal the line accommodates these; if no points are mentioned, the line is drawn simply straight from the base to the target. The return flight path is not lined on the map unless the return flight is discussed in the Journal.
Clicking on the mission number in the key at the left will display the Journal's description of the mission in a new window.
