Combat Report: 1315 hrs. Hof Struywe, Square V.42., this side of the line. RE2 (burnt). Accompanied by my Staffel, I attacked at 2.500 metres north of Ypres, on this side of the line, an English artillery RE. I fired from shortest distance some 200 shots, whereafter I zoomed over the enemy plane. In this moment I noticed that both pilot and observer were lying dead in their machine. The plane continued without falling, in uncontrolled curves to the ground. Driven by the wind, it fell into Struywe’s farm where it began to burn after hitting the ground. Weather: fine in the morning, but heavy storm in the afternoon.
