Hello everyone! As you all know, WW1 aviation has long fascinated me. I believe the story of WW1 (and even more specifically, WW1 aviators) tends to be overshadowed by WW2 and doesn't get as much press as it deserves. I also enjoy reading/writing and now that I no longer have to write college papers (woo hoo! 😁), I occasionally get the itch to research something and write about it. That being the case, I present to you, "Climbing Higher" - my personal blog on all things WW1 aviation! Every so often, when I have the inclination and free time, I'll be posting articles about WW1 aviation to my personal blog (linked below): https://rookieace.wixsite.com/climbinghigher My first post is a book review of a rarer WW1 aviation memoir: "A German Airman Remembers" by Hans Schröder. To see my thoughts on this unique read, just click on the link below! https://rookieace.wixsite.com/climbinghigher/post/a-german-airman-remembers-book-review Subsequent posts: (Nov 15, 2020) Do or Die: No Parachute High in the Sky
S! All, For those like me that love the Airco DH2... a short trailer of a real life flight made on the 11th, November 2011! The Airco DH2 based at Wickenby Airfield, is an authentic replica of the WW1 fighter biplane that rose to fame during the Battle of the Somme, between July and November 1916. Led by Major Lanoe Hawker of 24 RFC Squadron, the DH2 reclaimed the skies of the Western Front, and ended the reign of Germany's Fokker Eindecker. Wickenby's Replica is painted in the military colours of Hawker's aircraft, which inspired 24 RAF Squadron to invite the DH2 team to fly over the unveiling of a new memorial to Hawker in France, on 11th November 2011. Cheers, GenMarkof ps: would love to see this plane in Flying Circus Vol. 2!
