stuffy: Considering that thing you were about to fly was just as likely to kill you as anything the enemy would throw at you. Understandable.


German aircraft were technologically superior.  Fokker F VII were specifically named in the Versailles Treaty as aircraft Germany was to never produce again.

Some British planes were such miserable beasts to fly that their pilots deliberately crashed them to avoid having to take them out again. Others were designed to be 'stable' meaning, 'no manouverability'. They were simply flying death traps.

pag1107: There's no way I'd go up in any WW1-era aircraft sober.


Unless the Red Baron's kills were mostly friendly-fire your statement is invalid.  RTFA!
