-30- by itifonhom -30- by itifonhom
On 25th of July, around 19:50, Lothar Freiherr von Richthofen shot down a Camel somewhere over Fismes, France. It was his 30th victory! I have no idea if this is anywhere near to how it could look but surely this report inspired me to create this image, LvR getting his 30th victory.
Lothar gets level again while the poor chap in the Camel, badly wounded, turns his last pirouette trying to control his burning aircraft. The pilot of the Camel will remain unidentified, giving his life just as "No 30".
Rendered in C4D, post processed in Photoshop, 3D model from Pavel Zoch and can be bought here: [link], background from CGTextures and myself, Camel aircraft from RoF.

  Looking great, thanks for let me know! Would prefer to "Share alike" though... but it´s ok.

I changed the license to share alike. Thanks for catching that and thanks again for the awesome stock.

  Love to share things with others although I wouldn't describe my images as stock. I think of them more like a free aviation wallpaper collection! But I don't mind people use my art as long as they share with others too! It's always a good feeling, isn't it?  :-)

It is a good feeling. I take some of my favorite hard won photos and put them out there as background and stock. There is so much on DA that I just want to give back. By the way I had your photo on my computer as a wall paper for a couple of weeks when I first came across it.

When I see biplanes above the clouds I always wonder if they were actually able to climb that high. But someone told me already that they did indeed. =P

Nice image. Love the lighting.

very nice pic of Lothar's Dr1 - later he would have the top wing painted yellow as well
