Allan Dennehy BS: Favourite World War 1 Fighter Plane (110* d) RE: BS: Favourite World War 1 Fighter Plane 16 May 03


Stand back everybody, I'm coming out of the closet! I've seen every Discovery programe ever about fighter planes, old and new. There is something really beautiful about those vintage planes, though. Only time I got really close to one was in the sixties. I was a child playing football out on the road when suddenly about 20 or 30 biplanes started fighting it out in the Dublin mountains a couple of miles from us whilst a couple of helicopters filmed it all. We all stood with our mouths open for half an hour or so as one of the planes got "shot down," span towards the ground with smoke pouring from its tail, then pulled out of its dive, switched of the smoke trail and climbed back up to the dog fight. Remember the blockbuster movie "The Blue Max?" Well that was part of it. I'll never forget that day.
Anyway, I know its not a fighter, but I'm going for the Vickers Vimy bomber.
Hope you get your 10 hits and many more Little Hawk.
