Yes. I have seen a couple of collisions lately (and died in one months ago) so during the initial formation break-up on enemy sighting I have been doing so most gingerly!

As for the Brisfit she is a great bird. I have (yet!) to feel overmatched fighting an Alb. Between that, the Se, and N17 are the machines that get 95% of my Entente flight time. I also am a big fan of the Camel but there just ain't enough hours in a week.
And, sorry Mom, my luck flying the Alb is absolutely horrible. I am pretty handy with it until I get into those fights where we are at a big numerical disadvantage, especially against Nieuports, and, unfortunately, those are not overly rare!
