AEG Bombers of WW1 (speed corrected footage)
WW1 planes get a bad rap as antiquated wood and canvas fabric contraptions. But they were state of the art aircraft, designed and built by qualified and experienced professionals, in design offices and in factories, it took the work of a lot of people, and a lot of brains and muscle to build just one plane, and a lot of money too.
they also required a huge ground crew, to help keep them fuelled-up and running smoothly.
these old planes: they were a big deal!!!
