The trees and ground are enemy's of mine but it seems also that wind during take off was a big crash factor. How did those people have the nerve to buckel up in those creates ? Only the Brave.

Not so much the wind but the crosswind. For the most part in WW1 you weren't slaved to a runway. You pointed the machine into the wind and took off with little-to-no crosswind at all.

The silly cow laughing at the Vimy in trouble is lucky I wasn't standing beside her.

 

Not bad doing an emergency aborted take off with no brakes. Pilot's a legend I think.....
