How am I supposed to remember which of my aircraft are at high altitudes?

What do you all do to keep this straight, please?

The aircraft counter has a Red H or a Green L on them so as you change altitudes, you flip the counter.
From the instructions,
"Select the initial Altitude for each Aircraft Counter by flipping their counters to the desired High or Low sides"

Page 12, top of right column.

It's not clearly spelled-out that that's what the "H" and "L" printed on the aircraft counters are for, but that paragraph with its accompanying illustrations certainly imply it.

My only criticism of the chits is they shoulda put the "L" marker on the front face of the chit because it feels very much like it should be the default position. ...very minor, I know, I know. whistle

Agree entirely. My aircraft spend 95% of their time at low altitude.

Interesting. I spend most of my time (tough not 95%) at high, only to get the benefit of the better weapons. I take my chances with drawing a pop-up because the effect of the weapons is worth the risk.

It's not just the pop ups. It's the fact that the ridges offer no protection from incoming fire. Every man and his dog can see you and will shoot at you when you are up high.
