    1. Aww mate! That is a shame. It was taken during one of the air shows at Omaka...

      WW1 German infantry defending complete with an HMG and a couple of field artillery pieces with 5, yep 5, Fokker DR1 Triplanes giving air support against some advancing Lee Enfield and Lewis gun armed Brits with support from a Rolls Royce armoured car and a Mk IV [Male] tank supported from the air by a Bristol Fighter and a Newport 17.

      Some great air to air/air to ground footage from a camera mounted in the back of the Bristol and in between the Spandaus of one of the Fokkers.

      No music, just some over the PA narration.

      Lovely stuff!
