As for me, I plan to stay in my two-seater (Stutter) for the duration. I like having a second machine gun covering my back!!

Yeah, the Strutter is a great plane. I got kills as the pilot in it against Halberstadts! Now something like the BE2? I wouldn't wish a whole career in that on anyone! biggrin

I have read of the "suicide" missions flown by recon aircraft in the early years but once you do it in WOFF you realize just how hard it was! Getting 3 hours, without being a total coward, is hard enough. I cannot imagine someone living very long in some of these craft.

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.
