What do folks do in the Advanced Game once bombers have exhausted their fuel? Have you been:
1. using the Basic Game method (roll the dice based on distance to airfield);
2. simply "teleport" them back to base (the same way the fighters get repossessed at the end of their fourth move);
3. count them as destroyed?

Well then, your rules are different from the set I have. Nowhere in the Advanced Game is this covered, and I don't see any exception for Norway in the Basic Game (other than the fact that it only uses the southern chunk of the map). In my Advanced Game rules, all it states is, "After five moves, the Flight is out of fuel." It mentions sweet f-all about what happens after that.

Using the Basic Game rules is the only thing that makes sense because the long range targets would be suicide missions, but they were attacked without concerns for fuel consumption. I see no mention of exempting Norway from the list of eligible airfields, although I would understand restricting them to Luftflotte 5 only.

the advanced rules say some of the steps are diffrent to the basic rules ,so since there are no special rules about running out on fuel in the advanced rules use the basic rule.

the norway square does not have an airfield on it so is not a friendly airfield.
