WW1 footage by Anthony Fokker... quite remarkable...

Recommended Posts

OK, just found this mentioned on another site and thought it'd be appreciated here.

 

Lots of atmospheric footage, much detail for the setting of the Jastas..

Hope you enjoy.

I was surprised at how mucky the aircraft looked...Even Voss' F1, which you'd think would receive high levels of maintenance looks quite stained.

 

I think I am most interested in the shots of the airfields, the tent style hangars and general look of the places.... very useful..

Amazing stuff eh?  It is hard to imagine living in that time.  I guess you become what your surroundings are, and you cant miss what you never had.  But still hard to believe that the chances of life ending were so high and you do what is required of you.  Amazing.  

 

 

Sorry for getting all philisophical.   :grouphug:  LOL!
