Flying the B.E.2b in March 1915, I suffered system failures in two straight missions which surprised me very much the second time. Managed to make the landing the first time in a field, but the second time I landed short of the airfield and crashed into a fence. The aircraft was a write-off and my observer and I were listed as "Shook up".
One mission before the first failure, a B.E.2b in my flight suffered a engine fire and went down behind friendly lines. The observer was killed.
So three straight missions and three system failures for my flight. I asked for a transfer.
