Any aviation buffs? I have always had a love and interest of aviation if the first world war. Can you imagine :no parachute,until 1918 just one machinegun,(for single seaters) a very fragile plane...... I have such respect for the RFC/RAF , even in the face of overwhelming odds they kept putting up line patrols and flights. I would have loved to have flown a CAmel or an S.E.5A .

The good old "20 minuters", so called because that was considered the average lifespan of a pilot.

still probably better odds than a pongo
