Sorry for the reporting style. Tried to find it in a more "adult" format but I could only get the typical internet style news reporting. Still it's about WW1 aviation. Better then nothing I guess.

That's very interesting! He flew a Dolphin, too!

Yes. The missing scout from WOFF IMHO.
Never had a hankering to fly one mercifully but I always read she was a good performer.
Going by memory the Dolphin saw steady service in 4 frontline squadrons IIRC.

Sneak across the lines to ROF sometime. They provide Dolphins. And, yes, they do enjoy a good reputation. (and you can mount four machine guns.)


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.

I'd really love to see Dolphins in WOFF some day. They really are the most significant missing machine. I believe all the British SPAD squadrons converted to Dolphins by 1918.
