“In April 1916, a volunteer group of American pilots began a squadron to help the French against the Germans, called the Escadrille Americaine. The German ambassador in Washington complained about such blatant partisanship on the part of supposed neutrals. So to humor him, they were then called the Lafayette Escadrille, for the Frenchman who had fought under George Washington in the American Revolution. From the escadrille's inception, 38 Americans served in it at various times.”

3) Execute a stop and go landing, waiting until cleared for the go
