As long as I'm on "my" side of the lines, such failures never bother me much.
The glide-ability of the Albatros is wonderful, and I usually manage to land on an airfield.

For me, the combat is the unpredictable.
You never know, if anyone hits you from an angle where you didn't look.
I have white knuckles and a hard pumping heart throughout fights - and also the "adrenaline
reward", when I'm through the fights.

What you experience much more than me, of course, is the "What if I'm far into enemy terrain?..."
I hardly ever have that feeling, cause we never do that.
That is IMHO the toughest fear on the Entente side (well, maybe second, after: falling burning).
