Combat Report: 0910 hrs, between Keibergmolen and Lichtensteinlager, this side of the lines. De Havilland DD. With six machines of my Staffel, I attacked enemy squad consisting of two reconnaissance planes and ten fighters. Unimpeded by the enemy fighters, I managed to break one of the reconnaissance planes with my fire. The fuselage fell with the inmates into a hangar between Keibergmelen and Lichtensteinlager, this side of our lines. The plane exploded when crashing on the ground and destroyed the hangar. Weather: fine but cloudy, visibility good in early morning and again in the evening.
