Flying a solo sortie in a Pfalz D.III, I discovered a SPAD attacking one of our balloons on the Wargrounds server..

I should've been more calm and deliberate on my initial approach and shooting.  He obviously didn't notice me until I started spraying wildly, so I gave up what should've been a quick ambush strike.

Still stuck with it until he was down.  In ROF, it nearly always come down to who gets their engine shot up first, with the ensuing oil in the face and loss of power dooming the unlucky party.  My lucky engine shot came in the head on, after he had managed to get turned back around on me. He was pretty good at defensive flying in a SPAD, having some nicely timed snap turns.
