If the pilot lived, the Horse shoe and the 4 Leaf Clover gave him luck, nice photo;)

Isn't the horse shoe supposed to be the other way up, to stop the luck from falling out?!!
and isn't the aircraft an Albatross?

Photoalbum is from FFA 40. But there are tons of other planes belonging to other units.
Try to post the whole photo later.
Thank you for your replys.

Very nice Fokker Triplane DR-1 Very maneuverable but not as fast as most of the allied planes, the other photo hard to see the faces of the officers??

Thank you for sharing your photos;)
