-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.

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
