A pistol fight between a British Bristol Biplane and a German Taube Monoplane

Sergeant Werner, the first German to fly over Paris, had located the allied forces, and he had turned his monoplane to go back when he saw a thousand feet or so above a Bristol biplane pursuing. The British aeroplane flew down until it was 500 feet above the German. A pistol fight ensued. A French Bleriot then joined in the attack. Presently German troops appeared below and fired at the Bleriot and the Bristol, whereupon they flew away.
