    Apart from a few somehow modern planes, the majority of the Dutch LVA consisted of old bi-planes. One example of them was the Fokker C.X reconnaissance plane, also used as a light bomber. It was quite difficult to stay alive in the German-dominated sky of may 10th 1940 and the following short story showed how this was usually accomplished. This particular C.X was attacked by a Bf110 near Sassenheim.

    The funny thing is, the old LVA biplanes never suffered as much casualties as the more modern D.XXI, G.I and T.V squadrons.

    Cool, just shows if you know what your doing (and what your plane can do and what the opponents can't) you stand a fairly good chance of survival/success.
