d100 Air Encounters for great weird war! Part1

So will be revising tables to separate gonzo and horror a bit more. These tables are a stopgap for aircraft and aerial phenomena. Obviously sea missions would be different.

01 Weather - difficult weather
02 Targets behind lines - tempting targets behind enemy lines
03 Enemy troops - Enemy troops moving
04 Anti Aircraft fire - AA ground defences
05 Battle in progress - combat on ground
06 Own side aircraft - allied aircraft on maneuvers
07 Observation aircraft - photographing enemy positions
08 Fighter aircraft - knights of the sky
09 Bombers - large vulnerable aircraft
10 Airships - generally use altitude to avoid fighters
