Noel Kay writes: "0626: Scouting mission looking for suspected troop buildup in the woods south of Dun-sur-Meuse. Hit by DCA, engine severely damaged. Managed to land just inside our own lines. Had to walk 7 km to a balloon post to call our field. Four hours later the mechanics showed up with a truck, dismantled the plane and took us back to Senard."

Odis Först writes: "1601: Took off from Pontfaverger for the last time, for our new home at Warmeriville. It’s only a few miles away but there is an entirely different feeling about the place. Maybe it’s just being somewhere new. 37 minutes."
