Bonne Chance

by James Dietz

The stagnate trench warfare that halted great armies was in total contrast to the combat in the skies during the Great War. The advent of the airplane born the knights of the sky, the pilot.

Each day men would dawn leather and fur and take to the skies to engage the enemy in combat over the battle lines drawn below. The pilot was a new breed of soldier who would change the age old art of combat forever.

"Bonne Chance" depicts British Royal Flying Corps pilots preparing to depart on a early morning combat patrol to meet German pilots over France. The pilots have occupied a rustic French farmhouse behind the front lines for a headquarters and billet. They share the farmhouse with an assortment of barnyard animals and the glamorous French maiden.
