    Nice one, Allan.

    Looking forward to those upcoming ones.
    The DH.4 gunner sounds really interesting.

    Not many people know that it was possible to pilot (at least some) de Havilland DH.4 bombers from the rear gunner's seat during the First World War. Many two-seater aircraft had some form of rudimentary control in the gunners cockpit, but the DH.4 has a full suite of pilot controls available in that rear position.... Hope you enjoy the video... ;-)




    Cheers,

    Thank you for sharing that video, Allan. Controls in the rear cockpit have been discussed in another thread because one of the R.E.8 models had an equipment card allowing the observer to fly the plane.

    Very interesting, that'll give some in game ideas for limited control of the machine when the pilot cops it.

    There's a new (huge) photo book coming later this year from author Attila Szalay-Berzeviczy called "In the Centennial Footsteps of the Great War“ -- it's a tribute to the centennial of the First World War, done through contemporary imagery. Here's our interview with the author:



    Hope you're all staying safe and well during the current crisis. :-)

    Great to see a US DH4 in flight, and with a concise historical commentary too.

    Great clarity in that video, Allan.
    Really shows how exposed the rear gunner was.

    Thanks for posting.

    Great stuff, but flying straight and level like that could be a bad move!.......
