Good memories! Thanks for sharing! 

 

I really liked the way you rode those 2 seaters down in the 2nd and 3rd videos. Bringing them down without sustaining damage from the rear gunner is almost like an art form...it ain't easy! You did an awesome job!!!

There's a lesson to be learned from those. In both of those cases the enemy pilots were outstanding, and they attempted to fly their fast 2-seaters as scouts. If they had initiated a tail chase, there's a strong possibility in both cases they might have escaped. Of course nobody knows the entire situation when they pick their course of action... like I was very low on fuel in the D.VIII and could not have afforded to chase any further. And can a Breguet outrun a standard D.VII? Maybe. In any case, hindsight is 20/20. One thing I do know for sure is that if you had been the 2-seater pilot and did your thing in the back seat the way you do, I definitely would have sustained damage and would have had to break off to survive.
