Re: Brightwood, District of Colombia, USA - Section 91 HQ

Katrin "Minnie" Creuzberg had had, an interesting 48 hours since she'd landed in DC. She'd been to Arlington, to see her Father grave. Done a tour of the Smithsonian and met her half brother for a few beers and a few laughs. The Green Beret was doing well, showed her pictures of her half niece and nephew.

Of course he'd asked about why her arm was in a sling and why she'd occasionally grimace in pain when she tried to move. She assured him it was occupational hazards and spun a tail about taking down a perp while she was working border security.

In actuality she'd been shot while she was blowing her cover in an RAF (Red Army Faction) Meeting, though... The other guys were worse off than her.

Entering the Control room. Katrin smiled at Memphis and took a seat. Smelling the coffee, she spoke. Her English coming out not in the expected German Accent but a weird conglomeration of English and American.

"Where is the coffee? I'm in great need of some as well"

Memphis looked down towards one of the telephones.

"Food and drink can be ordered by picking up the black internal telephone. We've got some stuff on site, but we're going to have to order out for hot food. Someone put metal in the science oven and blew it up. I hope you like Pizza Hut".

She took a look at her watch.

"Anyway, changing the topic, you going to see that new Harrison Ford film? Raiders of... What's it called again?"

Re: Brightwood, District of Colombia, USA - Section 91 HQ

"Pizza hut is the one with the uh... Pan Pizza, correct?" Katrin asked as she went to pick up the phone.

"Raiders of The Lost Ark" Katrin corrected "And I believe i will go see it, as I like Harrison Ford"

Following this she picked up the phone, she asked Memphis.

"Who's tapped for this mission?"

Re: Brightwood, District of Colombia, USA - Section 91 HQ

Memphis pulled out a folder in front of her and looked at the operation plan.

"The people going to Brno are Frostwood, Catesby, Coetezee, John McMahon and Lucy Kovak", she said, "They're in Germany and will begin the drive over towards the Czechoslovak border".

She pulled out a map from the folder, an Operational Navigational Chart of Northern Europe produced by the Defense Mapping Agency. She picked up a pen and pointed at the area around Munich, rendered of course under its German name of München.

"They plan to cross the border at Bayerisch Eisenstein, which is south of Klatovy and then drive onto Brno from there, hopefully arriving around breakfast time. They will be in three vehicles - two cars and a bike for Lucy, with one of the cars carrying a long-range radio system. There is a tracker in one of their cars - cunningly disguised as a cuddly toy, which will send us their location every five minutes.

Monitoring that and Pact activity is going to be a E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft, along with a RC-135. They will of course be keeping west of the Buffer Zone, so they might not be able to cover as far in as we would like..."

OOC: Map may take a while to load.

Re: Brightwood, District of Colombia, USA - Section 91 HQ

"Coetezee is a strange choice" Katrin mused as she listened to the list before dialing for food.

"Can I get coffee and donuts here, please and thank you" she said rather bluntly as she sat down next to Memphis once more.

"So essentially our warning isn't good if they launch fighters in their direction. What's the Exfil plan? Drive out like the Came in?"

"They're not exactly going to launch fighters in our direction", Memphis said, "However, they may well look for our people with them. I doubt they'd shoot up a car with a MiG-21... but you never know".

She looked at the folder.

"Exfil is driving out the same way as they came in unless things go wrong in which case, they'll try to bolt out the fast way through the Austrian border... or worst comes to worst, try to get themselves to Berlin".

Re: Brightwood, District of Colombia, USA - Section 91 HQ

"It would be the first time I'd seen it" Katrin said as she listened to Memphis. Of course she'd mostly operated in East Germany and Poland, no real ranging had been done in her missions.

"Where are they now?" She questioned as she began dialing the black phone for food.

"Let me check", Memphis said, then looked up at a series of clocks on the wall. One of them was showing the local time in West Germany and Czechoslovakia, six hours ahead of them, "It's a quarter past two in the morning, so they should be about half way to the frontier. It's a 2 hour 40 drive from Munich..."

She got to her feet.

"We have a tracker fitted in a teddy bear in one of their vehicles that will squawk every five minutes or so with their location to the nearest mile or so - there's a tracker using the Transit navigation satellites. We should get an update in two minutes..."

Katrin dialled the number and got through to the nearest Pizza Hut. A young male voice came over the line.

"Pizza Hut, how can I help you?" he said.

OOC: The A92 autobahn which is the quickest route hasn't been fully completed at this point in history, but much of that road was in use as the B11.

Re: Brightwood, District of Colombia, USA - Section 91 HQ

Upon hearing the male voice Katrin smiled "yes hello, I'd like 2 pan pizzas, with pepperoni and sausage." She said before covering the microphone with her hand

"Do you want anything Memphis?" She asked
