Yeah mate it was a proper 'straightener' that fight, aircraft everywhere. That's why I picked late summer of 1917, I wanted to fly the SPAD VII but I wanted the skies busy.

Haha, yeah he looks a bit miserable doesn't he. Kind of sums the mood up around my DID airfield I think with all the crap weather.

"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."
