Noel Kay makes a flight to Chalons and back. While near Chalons he suffers another engine failure. Kay manages to put down safely at the nearest airfield. After an examination the mechanic tells him it's going to take two days to repair. Kay gets a telephone call through to Verdun, and his commander tells him to stay with the plane and return home when it is ready.

Corrie Aujla makes yet another patrol of the Belgian border. Nothing to see, nothing to report.

Ries Meismer makes a very long flight - almost three hours. The squadron is told that they need to get all the flight-time possible, as the war is going to come to them all too soon.

Odis Först makes a very long flight, following his instructor all over the region. No explanation is given other than that they need practice navigating.

Some people are born stupid. I've had to work hard my whole life to get this way. I'm proud of the job I've done
