WW1 Planes: Australian Palestine, Salmson & British crash



A flight of bombing planes 1st Australians flying corpse, Palestine.

French Salmson plane.

A crashed British plane that looks in good condition - other photos show crumpled heaps - so it may simply have run out of fuel and made an impromptu landing. 

Flying planes in WW1 was an extremely dangerous task, more died in training than in battle. Given  flight being rather new and the very fragile planes they used meant  a pilots life was often short.
