WAR AREA THRILLED
BY FIGHTSm THE AIR
British and German Battle
Planet Engage in Close En
counters Tar Above the
(Rrom a Staff Correspondent of the Asso.
British Front in France (Via Lon
don), May 31. The recent lull in the
fighting has had no' effect whatever
upon the British aerial offensive,
which continues day and night with
In the last few days there have been
witnessed some of the most desper
ate air battles of the entire war. One
or two of these have been fought at
the unprecedented height of 19,000
feet, or more than three and one-half
milea from the earth.
Recently there was a duel In which
a British pilot having run out of am
muntition for his macihne gun got
close enough to his antagonist to
shoot him down with his revolver.
This Incident served to recall the fact
that when the war began the only
weapons which aerial pilots had were
pistols and carbines.
First Planes Poor.
. Commenting today on the dazzling
altitudes at which many combats oc
cur nowadaya, a pilot said that when
he first went to war in 1914 he flew
a machine which took an hour and a
quarter to reach 6,000 feet,
"That's nothing," said one of his
comrades. "The old bus I had in
those days couldn't reach- 6,000 feet
The airplane which could not nego
tiate 10,000 feet well under ten
minutes would be scrapped quickly
A notable feature of the air fighting
in the last ten days has been the ten
dency of the German machines to
break In pieces soon after being shot
out of control, , ,4 , ,,.
Heavy Toll of Flyers,- J
The toll ' of German planes' de
stroyed in May will mount far into the
hundreds. In last Sunday's fighting
alone, thirty were accounted for. Fif
teen were seen to crash to the ground,
fourteen were driven down completely
out of control and one was shot down
- One of melees On Sunday between
six British and eight German ma
chines was as thrilling as any aerial
battle ever fought.
At Close Quarters,
It was at close quarters throughout,
so close in fact that wings scraped
against wings and pilots could look
each other squarely in the eyes,
No sooner would t British pilot
swoop up to the tail of one of the
Gerrr.an machines than another Ger
man was on his tail.
This German in turn would almost
immediately have another British pilot
pouring bursts of machine gun bul
lets at him. At one time seven ma
chines were following each other in
headlong fashion toward the earth.
It was nearly 8 o'clock in the eve
ning when the British offensive pa
trol sighted the eight Germans, well
over their own lines, The enemy ma
chines fled, but were eventually over
taken and brought to combat.
