I read recently in an issue of Over the Front magazine, that in WWI, pilots that were still in training or otherwise inactive, would dip their jackets in oil, in order to give them the look of active fighter pilots, which would impress the ladies, and others    :lol:

Great pictures Gen!  Thanks for posting them!

 

I love the schwarm formation photograph, with I./JG 3 being used in the picture!
