They never reached the troop camp north of Chalons. Just as they were crossing the lines they ran into a trio of Fokkers. One of them broke formation and headed for Gaston's flight. They fired at each other head on and then the tail chase commenced. After a while Voscadeaux had him on the ropes and the Boche was quickly running out of sky. Then suddenly Etienne lounged at the Hun and their wings entangled. They both dropped like rocks towards earth near Grandpré. Gaston couldn’t do anything to help. It was over in 3 seconds. He signalled Delbee to form up and they turned back home one pilot less.

The ‘B’ flight was sent to patrol enemy front lines over the St. Mihiel salient. They haven’t encountered any enemy machines, or even friendly for that matter. The cloud layer over the patrol area was so thick one could certainly walk on it. The area could be teeming with Boches below them and they wouldn't know it. They’ve returned home empty handed.
