Today Capitaine Achille Renard led a balloon busting mission. After destroying the sausage his flight jumped a pair of Eindeckers. After some time and an exchange of fire he was able to bag one.
When it was all over the rest of his flight was already on their way home. He was on his own and damaged. Before reaching friendly lines he was attacked by a returning flight of Fokkers. He was low on ammo, but still able to fight. The turn fight started and it's then when it happened. His lower wings weakened by the bullets from the previous battle gave way and Achille plummeted down towards the ground. The fight started at low altitude so there wasn't far to go.
He survived the impact and was taken to the hospital but died the next day. R.I.P. Achille.
