Lt. Manfred von Richthofen of Jasta 11 describes one of his aerial victories in. Bloody April - Slaughter in the skies of Arras, 1917 by Peter Hart.
"Together with seven of my aircraft, I attacked an enemy squadron west of Lens. The aircraft I had singled out caught fire after I had discharged 150 shots into it from a distance of 50 metres. The aircraft fell burning. The occupant of the aircraft fell out of it at a height of 500 metres. Immediately after it crashed on the ground, I could see a heavy black smoke-cloud rising. The aircraft burned for some time with frequent flares of flame."
