Smashing pictures Lederhosen, great skin.

I had a quiet couple of days but back in the saddle again today. I had a lone wolf jaunt over Loos and spotted something in the murky distance.....I closed in and quickly made out the less than shapely lines of an FE.

As you can see, it was dispatched with aplomb (well actually it was with a Spandau).

"A great deal of an aeroplane could be holed without affecting its ability to fly. Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."
