A fight with an enentv s aeropl ano is fine sport, and the Hermans cannot lick us at that. But when thev get. their high-angle guns at -work on us the disturbance of the air is so great that it is as much a> ever you can do to control your machine. It plunges up and down and rolls sideways so that, do what you will, it nearly turns over. You hardly know whether you're upside down or not.
