Johann Falke FFA 8b, Alsace Front 4 February, 1915 Flugplatz Colmar
Managing to get to ten missions (enduring two engine failures, fortunately both near Colmar), Flieger Falke approached his commandant, a certain Hauptmann Rudolph Klink [incidentally, Klink had a younger brother, Wilhelm who was also a pilot]...
"So, I have flown ten missions now; can I do it?"
"Have the tail of my crate painted red and white, you know, to honor my homeland"
Klink: "It's painted incorrectly! The stripes should be the other way"
Falke: "But we are not Austrian, but I am!"
Klink: (sigh) "....it's your machine"
Falke: "Thank you, sir!"
...but there was something festering inside of Falke...something that would take time to manifest, but soon enough would show itself!
The Saga Continues!
