With almost the perfect angle for a deflection shot the Dr1 truly has the French Nieuport in his grasp. The unremitting nature of WW1 air combat was such that this was an everyday occurrence, indeed many times a day, and there was no �good end� for the vanquished. Fragile aircraft, always too ready to burn, and no parachutes meant that the pilots suffered dreadful attrition rates - some three weeks on Squadron was close to the norm - truly Darwinism in stark cold practice.
Have been interested in photography since just after WW2, when film became freely available again, using Kodak Autographic equipment. Graduated, in the 50's, to 35mm and was involved in photographic work during my 17 yrs as RAF aircrew - navigator. Since retirement and migrating to Canon digital equipment have been involved with two of my sons and one grandson in a considerable amount of photographic activity, particularly composite images. Now producing digital art prints with the major emphasis on classic warbird aviation.
