This was the machine in which the two famous German airmen, Immelmann and Boelke performed some of their most daring exploits.
Thus in the early days Immelmann and Boelke were much heard of.
I had to take an 80-horsepower machine, because Immelmann, who had remained behind, had already taken my 160-horsepower machine.
Immelmann also saw him fall, and was immensely pleased by our success.
Captain Boelke had a totally different method of attack from that of Immelmann.
On the ninth of November, 1916, I flew towards the enemy with my little comrade Immelmann, who then was eighteen years old.
While I was fighting my opponent, Immelmann had tackled another Englishman and had brought him down in the same locality.
Boelcke and Immelmann were given the Ordre pour le Mérite when they had brought down their eighth aeroplane.
I quickly went up to support Immelmann, but the enemy was gone by the time I got there.
Finally another Fokker (Immelmann) came to my rescue and the fight started all over again.
