Right here is one I made from jasta 5 flightline on jan 8. Not like the others but still a tribute to the Jasta. Hope you enjoy. Made it smaller for the web. Still quite wide though. Looks good as my desktop background.

Some great pics there rOEN911!
Beware that the pilot you've used at your last two pics of the Camel and Dr.1, looks way out of scale…(too small).
Very atmospheric the pic of your Jasta too Rumey!

Guck i edit them with photoshop to have a result like this.When i cut them and i want bigger "Model" of the plane i resize them and then all the bud details, i smooth them one by one every single screw from the beginning and i get a high resolution like this.Anyway glad you like them,
Have another one :)

Can anyone tell me the story behind that Caldwell picture please? I've seen a picture of a museum where they have an SE5a displayed like that. But what exactly happened there? Was he on fire, or did he stand on the wing to balance the plane?

Read this :

On one occasion in September 1918, Keith's quick thinking and resourceful nature saved him from certain death. Whilst on a patrol, another S.E.5a struck his aircraft, catastrophically damaging his wing struts and altering the aircraft's aerodynamics. Instantly his fighter plummeted 1000 feet and went into a flat spin. Keith knew he was doomed if he didn't attempt something radical. So he stepped his left leg out onto the port wing, and grabbed hold of the strut with his left hand. Attempting to balance the aircraft by changing the centre of gravity, Keith continued to try to fly the aircraft with his right hand on the joystick.

With only 500 feet of altitude left he realised it was hopeless, but this activity had allowed him to guide the aircraft away from enemy territory and over the British lines. Just as the plane was about to impact with the ground Keith jumped, clearing the wreck and getting up to find he'd landed in front of a British infantry dugout. Astonished soldiers saw him get up, dust himself off and walk towards them as if nothing had happened. Escaping the flat spin, guiding the plane away from enemy lines and then jumping clear at the last minute and walking away from the crash is nothing short of a miracle.

I also correct a small mistake to the previous pic.

Cool! Very original! Never seen Native Americans associate with anything WWI, but so many squadron insignias were of Natives. :)

S! not really the place for it, but

Since Reno has done that cool pic of the kiwi Caldwell out on the wing of the SE5a.

There was another Kiwi by the name of James Ward who did somthing like that as well.

He was in his Wellington Bomber.. here is the link to have a read. Could be some more insapration for you Reno be it WW2.

It would have been more historical if the Central plane was an Albatros though…
