Hey guys! I recently finished a research paper on the experiences of WW1 pilots for a college class I was taking. I thought I'd share it here for those who are interested. ;)

Thanks for sharing Hotlead!  I think it's awesome that you wrote on the First World War pilots.

Well written, well researched, well done indeed.


I find it all a very sad statement about humanity, the tragedy and waste of life involved in such conflict as well as the acceptance of what the sons of some men do the sons of others and how quickly it is forgotten.

Oh, the days of having to write papers.  Very well thought out and researched paper, I enjoyed reading it.  Funny how aviation buffs write aviation papers.  Mine were on the Human Factors of Aviation Accidents, The combat life of Richard Ira Bong (being a Wisconsinite, had to write about him), and a paper and a speech on the Delta 191 accident in Fort Worth, Texas (complete with CVR recording for dramatic effect.)

Good work.

One small inacuracy though. Manfred joined the Air service as observer and made his pilot training while flying combat missions as observer.
