Question Plane crash

Currently I'm in a PBEM and this round some P-47 made strafing runs on the enemy(China, 1951).
A lot 14,5mm AA is there and fired like crazy but the P-47 didn't get a single hit despite that 3 of them crashed, all I saw was:
"P-47 damage (20)"

Enemy had already killed a spotter but there I saw the hits and after that the plane went down.

So know I wonder what the cause of the crash of those P-47 was, was it not the AA fire or is the replay bugged or was it FoW?

OK but why was there no message about the hit? At least not on my replay.

Long standing issue... sometimes in PBEM a message like that goes astray on replays

Thanks for clarifying that.
Could it be any message or just the Hit messages that can get swallowed?

If an aircraft recieved (20) damage then one should consider, it it either did not make it back to base or it crashed off map
Any damage at all, anyway = it won't be making any more sorties

Also, you might have missed the damage stats,try a slower message speed.
I don't use air often as when it's nicked, it's grounded.

Well fire messages showed up properly but not the hit message.
I also see that when some AT guns fire at my tanks.
Is there an option that turns off the hit message?
