Godwin von Brumowski by Ivan Berryman. (AP)


Godwin von Brumowski by Ivan Berryman. (AP)

With dozens of confirmed victories at the end of WW1, the great Austro-Hungarian ace, Godwin von Brumowski was a formidable opponent, his red Oeffag-built Albatros D.III 153.45 of Flik 41J notorious in the skies above the Piave River on the Italian Front. Enemy fighters, bombers and balloons alike fell to his guns, outclassed by both his airmanship and skills as a marksman. Brumowski's confirmed total at the war's end was 35, with many more 'probables', making him the highest-scoring pilot in the Austro-Hungarian air force. He is depicted here, standing next to 153.45 in typical flying helmet and leather coat, the balloon badge of the Luftfahrtruppen, just visible on the red collar patch of his tunic. The swirl pattern applied over the red base coat on two of his D.IIIs was a derivative of a camouflage pattern that he developed during his time flying the Hansa-Brandenberg D.1 (KD) earlier in the war, when the tresses were applied over a green finish to help his aircraft blend in to the verdant forests of the Isonzo region. Although never intended as any form of camouflage, the bright red of his three red Albatros D.IIIs, with their ghoulish skull emblems, were inspired by the German ace, Manfred von Richthofen, who Brumowski briefly met during his detachment to the Western Front with Jasta 24.

 A German Albatross D-III sees off a Bristol Fighter among the clouds over the Western Front, early in 1917. The D-III was a massive improvement over the monoplanes of the time, possessing greater manoeuvrability, a higher ceiling and synchronized guns. Many German aces thought this the best fighter of the First World War.

 With dozens of confirmed victories at the end of WW1, the great Austro-Hungarian ace, Godwin von Brumowski was a formidable opponent, his red Oeffag-built Albatros D.III 153.45 of Flik 41J notorious in the skies above the Piave River on the Italian Front. When flying with his fellow ace, friend and wingman, Frank Linke-Crawford, they formed a deadly partnership, the two of them frequently sharing victories as they tore through their enemies' air forces, downing fighters, bombers and balloons alike. Brumowski's confirmed total at the war's end was 35, with many more 'probables', whilst Linke-Crawford was to claim a total of 27.  They are depicted here in their distinctive aircraft, carrying out a low-level patrol late in the afternoon in the Dolomites in December 1917, just weeks before Linke-Crawford left the squadron to take up his appointment as Commanding Officer of Flik 60.  It is popularly believed that the falcons painted on the sides of his aircraft led to Linke-Crawford later acquiring the title '<i>The Falcone of Feltre</i>'.

A Pair of Aces by Ivan Berryman. (APB)

 Born in Wadowice, Galicia in 1889, Godwin Brumowski entered the military and served as an officer in the Field Artillery Regiment No. 6 on the Eastern Front during WW I. Interested in flying, Brumowski joined the Luftfahrtruppen as an observer. Learning to fly on his own, he was eventually promoted to command a fighting unit which was composed of both scout and fighter aircraft. In 1916 Brumowski visited the Western Front where he studied the tactics of the German fighting units. Very impressed by what he had seen, Brumowskis goal was to command a unit similar to von Richtofens Flying Circus. Upon his return Brumowski was put in command of another fighting unit equipped with Brandenburg D1s. The D1 was a fairly quick highly maneuverable aircraft. Unfortunately it lacked synchronized machine guns, being equipped instead with a top-wing mounted gun. This gun was not accessible by the pilot in flight to clear jams, and its location also negatively affected the aircrafts performance. Brumowski designed an insignia for his flight which included a white skull on a black background. By 1917 Brumowskis superiors agreed to put the officer in charge of a true fighter group which would be equipped with Albatros D IIIs. These nimble aircraft also had twin synchronized machine guns. Taking another page out of von Richtofens book, Brumowski quickly decided that the six aircraft under his command would be painted bright red. Flying primarily against Italian opponents, Brumowski would go on to attain forty victories, the most of any Austro-Hungarian ace. He would also survive the War, but was killed in a plane crash in 1937. The Albatros D III flown by Brumowski was produced under license by Oesterreichische Flugzeugfabrik A.G. for the Royal and Imperial Air Service of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Although similar to their German counterparts, the Austrian Albatroses differed in several respects. Power was supplied by an excellent Austro-Daimer engine which had an output of 225-HP in the Series 253 model. The aircraft was armed with twin Schwarzlase machine guns. These guns were less reliable than their German counterparts. The Austrian engineers also re-engineered the wing structure in such a way as to minimize some of the structural problems which plagued the German models. Between early 1917 and late 1918 a total of 540 Austrian produced D IIIs were built. This was arguably the best single seat fighter to serve with the Imperial Air Service during the War. It was flown by most of the top-scoring Austro-Hungarian aces.
