My engine stopped while still behind enemy lines on my way out. Gliding down with no hope of making it even to no man's land let alone my side, I looked for a long straight road to land on. No kidding, there was an enemy observation balloon near the road and i put his craft into a dive to pick up some speed and made a pass at it. I got smoke! So I pulled up with my diving speed, circled back for a second gliding pass at the balloon and blew it up! I then managed to still safely land on the road. I wish I hadn't stopped recording, as I have no proof to offer of the event. It was pretty amazing though.
