Early March saw BurnHard leading two other Pfalz planes on a bombing raid targeting enemy troops south of Arras. Most of the snow has melted off the ground except for shaded areas near trees and fence rows.
As he snaked his way south along the lines an enemy troop concentration was spotted. It look to be good as any enemy target on the frontlines. So he let his bombs go and soon heard those of the rest of the flight whistling towards the hunkered down enemy. Some bombs hit!
BurnHard then turned towards German turf and and flew North paralleling the front lines. He did spot German flak bursts drawing near and decided to dive down to avoid an enemy contact. That tactic worked and soon all from his FA47b flight were safely back at Douai.
