Thanks for posting Bo. The DVII underwing being carried off gives some insight into weathering the undersurface!

Thanks, Bo! Veeeery interesting information! Great help for all of us (including me), who want to build These as kits!
I think the Hannover was the one shot down by Eddy Rickenbacker. And concerning the Fokker D.VII "U10": As you all know, this is Heinz Freiherr von Beaulieu-Marconnay's (OAW) 4635/18, Jasta 65 (WnW decal sheet 30008 "Fighting Fokkers, 3").
Do I see right that the Fokker's upper wing has changing 5- and 4-colour-Lozenge?
Does anybody know, how to copy stills from that film?

Yes I noticed the upper wing center left panel is decidedly lighter anyway than its neighbors.

To do a quick-n-dirty frame grab, pause the action and hit print screen (Windows) or cmd-shift-4 (Mac).

Great footage of "U10".  Thanks for posting?

I shall never forget my admiration for that German pilot, who single handed, fought seven of us for ten minutes. I saw him go into a fairly steep dive and so I continued to watch, and then saw the triplane hit the ground and disappear into a thousand fragments...James McCudden
