1) Turn towards “CAPTREE BRIDGE

“On October 5, 1914, a French corporal named Louis Quenault, was flying as observer in a rear-engined Voisin piloted by Sergeant Joseph Frantz. Quenault sat in front with a Hotchkiss machine gun newly fitted to the edge of the cockpit. Over Rheims, the Frenchmen spotted a German Aviatik two-seater. Frantz flew a headlong attack, but the Germans didn 't even seem a bit perturbed! So Quenault fired his Hotchkiss machine gun and the German plane burst into flames and went down. This was the first airplane to be shot down by a machine gun in aerial combat!”
