Description
German pilot jumping from his burning Albatros aeroplane after it was shot down over enemy lines during World War One. Photograph from a series on aerial combat, the majority of the photographs were taken by a British pilot. The pilot recounted the fight that led to this picture: 'A Hun went down under control and Jock (fellow pilot) nosed after it to get it. Then saw it on fire and followed it down, watching pilot struggle to bring it all the way down. Heat must have been terrific. Noticed pilot trying to jump out...Camera caught him just as he left the burning plane.'
