How special were those two WW1 aces?just looking at the stringbag planes that they went up in frightened the crap out of me,how did they do it even with their nerves cracked up so much. Shame they perished just before the war ended but what made me furious was the lack of respect from the top brass to them as they came up thru the ranks. Richtoffen had an funeral filled with guards of honour,not McCudden nor was any effort made to find Mannock's grave. For any outside the UK let me add out of 14000 pilots killed in WW1 8000 were killed in training accidents! It was a riveting programme and I'm filled with admiration with any who flew knowing the life expectency was 11 days.
