WWI German floatplane surrenders to French sailing vessel.
In Downed Bird, Dietz reminds us of the irony of war. The "Brandenburg W29," the finest German floatplane, surrenders to a French sailing vessel. In his attempt to sink the ship, he was shot down himself, and the aircrew now finds itself at the mercy of the sailors on board.
