Combat Report: 1710 hrs, near Lagnicourt. Vickers two-seater. No details, as plane fell on the other side of line. When my Staffel was attacking enemy squadron, I personally attacked the last of the enemy planes. Immediately after I had discharged my first shots, the plane began to smoke. After 500 shots the plane plunged down and crashed to splinters on the ground. The fight had begun above our side, but the prevailing east wind had drifted the planes to the west. Weather: fine but cloudy.
