�Bad Day at the Office�
A lonely SE5A is harried by a couple of Fokker Dr1s - with only a minimal speed advantage in hand the SE will have to wriggle out of this by manoeuvre. Where is your wing man when you need him most!!
By 1917 the �art� of air combat had become more and more refined with the better pilots being aided by lesser lights acting as support or �wing men�. von Richthofen, in particular, worked this tactic to his very great advantage achieving 80 �kills� from late 1916 until April 1918.
A typical combat scene in the grey skies of Flanders in the latter months of WW1 - where RFC front line pilots had a life expectancy of about three weeks.
