The pilot on the albatross ran out of ammunition, but he did not succeed because he was caught by an armored Nieuport :-)

Actually I used less than half of the ammo, although for the first half of the video the right machine-gun is jammed and I didn't notice. What I tried to do in this video was re-create the feel of a nature documentary i watched where it showed King Birds harassing other, slower birds (Wild Flyers, I think it was called). I did most of the shooting in very small bursts as I was coming "up" into the "armpit" of the Nieuport. This probably would not work on a human pilot, but the AI was helpless against it and just kept trying to turn on a horizontal plane.

 

Eventually I think it was a combination of the engine being damaged and the pilot being wounded that forced it down. The full dogfight is about 11 minutes.
