1917 Bloody April

Led by German Ace Baron Manfred von Richthofen (the "Red Baron") the British lost 316 aircrew members compared to the loss of 116 German air crews. The Germans were once again flying superior aircraft- the Albatros& the Halberstadt. A British pilot lasted on average only 17 hours in the air before being shot down.
