Some pics of an afternoon bombing run from Colmar to the nearest enemy airfield Fontaine. Three of us in our flight with Udet in the Aviatik CI and Beineck and Dolf in the first BIIs.
Fontaine is easy to get to by simply keeping the hills off the right wing with a rough heading of South West. On the way there Beineck's Aviatik BII caught on fire and exploded. Now we are down to four pilots with another on leave.
Dropping bombs on Fontaine
Udet's CI carries more bombs and took another 10 minutes or so to drop his bomb load. Getting home to Colmar was simply a matter of keeping the hills off the left wing and a rough heading of North east. The sun was setting and the full moon was rising as they landed.
