A thread for photos of pilots, observers, aircraft, airships, observation balloons, anti-aircraft weapons, and their crew.  Whether they're in the air, on the ground, or blown out of the sky, post 'em here!

No information written on reverse.  Photo taken sometime after he was awarded his Pour le Mérite in January 1916.

Did some more research on my photo in the post above.  Photo was taken around March 1916 at an airfield in Sivry, France, close to the action in the Verdun offensive.

Below are more photos of Oswald Boelcke from my collection:

You have a splendid collection of WW1 Imperial photos.  Thanks for sharing these.  I am impressed how well they lasted the test of time.

Cheers!

Thanks, JustinG.  Stay tuned as I have a lot of photos to share.  For this thread I'll eventually add more aircraft, anti-aircraft, and even some unpublished photos of Hermann Göring.
