Yup, CI's put Alfred in hospital once already and that was in the Scout. Not so easy to kill them now. Losing wingmen left and right. They're still used to easy kills.
I expect Boelcke and Immelmann will show up along with the EIII's?

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
