A great read, Banjoman!

FFA 71 also has a couple of old Aviatiks. Fortunately we haven't had any combat encounters yet. I'm pretty confident with the Aviatik C.I (has two guns and everything), but the B types are already as old as the mountains.

The Metz area is a great to place to fly! Very easy to navigate using Lou's maps, thanks to all the obvious landmarks there in the Verdun sector. Even a completely hopeless navigator like me can't lose his way there.
