Oh no, not Gaston! But there was definitely a certain realism to his death; quite a few Great War aviators were lost in mid-air collisions. Undoubtedly the most famous such casualty was Oswald Boelcke himself.

I enjoyed reading about Gaston's adventures and watching the videos. I wish you better luck with your next pilot.

I've been busy with real life, but I hope to get back to DID flying soon.
