Just a short list of questions today:
When was the parachute used for the first time in an aircraft (in combat)?
Who was the first to see that his opponent (most probably a German) left his damaged aircraft with this lifesaving device?
Who was this parachutist (fighter, 2-seater crew, etc.)?
What type of aircraft were the "involved parties" flying?
Where did the fight happen?
Was there a report about this "novelty" in the allied or German documents?
The only things I found out are, that most probably a German left his plane in (early?) 1918 somewhere over the western front. But this is just a well estimated guess ...
Thank you very much for your help.
