Combat Report: 1150 hrs, near Lagnicourt About 1150 I attacked, accompanied by four planes of our Staffel above our aerodrome at Lagnicourt and at 3.000 metres altitude, a Vickers Squadron. I singled out a machine and after some 200 shots, the enemy plane started gliding down towards Cambrai. Finally it began to make circles. The shooting had stopped and I saw that the machine was flying uncontrolled. As we were already rather far away from our front lines, I left the crippled plane and selected a new adversary. Later on I could observe the aforementioned machine, pursued by a German Albatros machine, crash burning to the ground near Fremicourt. The machine burnt to ashes. Weather: bright and fine all day, with occasional clouds in the afternoon.
