This sounds much more like a script than a story. That makes it very hard to read. Instead of writing:

Quote:
Johnson turns and yells out the cockpit,
"Boys, enemy fighters coming this way. Hang on we're doing evasive action."


Write:

Quote:

"Boys, enemy fighters coming this way" Johnsons screamed from the cockpit. "Hang on we're doing evasive action."


You get it? In one you seem to be directing the action, like a screenplay, and in the other you are describing action as it happens.

Sounds like you have good ideas. I'll be looking for your next one.

I actually don't mind this style of writing. The present tense makes you feel as though its happening right now. And the story wasn't all that bad. Not bad at all
