Classic Duel

Sopwith Camel vs. Fokker DrI
27th November 1917

Lieutenant Light is out testing his new Sopwith Camel, when he spots a German plane below him in the distance.

As Loffler rolls through Light's initial attack and climbs up behind him, Light curses the lack of a rear gunner in the nimble single-seater Sopwith.

From above the small and nimble shape of the Fokker Drei-Decker is apparent.

Light attempts to scuttle back to safety over his own lines, but the Fokker's twin machine-guns take him down.

Light pays the ultimate price

Does a new Fokker scourge menace the Royal Flying Corps?
