On UK's first turn, the bomber was assigned to bomb,
not attack, Germany. I clicked on the UK, selected the
bomber, the red line appeared, and I dragged it to
Germany. I did this quickly, so I didn't notice that it's
course took it over Western Europe until I had already
clicked "done" to finish the combat move cycle. I was
then informed that the AA gun in Western Europe had
scored a hit and I needed to assign casualties. I was
pissed that I had not corrected the route, so tried to
get out of the screen without assigning the kill. I first
clicked the "X" close button, but was told that I still had
to assign casualties. I then tried just clicking "OK", but
got the same message. I repeated this several times
before deciding to just take the casualty. To my
surprise, there was still a button on the right side to
select the bomber's combat. I clicked this and the
battle played out normally. The bomber wasn't shot
down, and the German's lost 2 ipcs. The bomber then
flew back to the UK and landed safely. At the end of
the turn, it was still there even though the game had
told me earlier that it was shot down over Western
Europe.

    Fixed in the next release.

    This only happens if you close the window when you select
    the bomber casualties.

    Good catch.
