* HindenburgIncendiaryPrinciple: One mission has the Lafayette Escadrille deploy to bring down a German zeppelin en route to bomb Paris. A more realistic example here, as German zeppelins were [[MadeOfExplodium filled with hydrogen]], and even then the squadron commander says that it can take hundreds of incendiary rounds to bring one down. [[spoiler:It ends up being the mortally wounded flight leader ramming the airship that does it.]]

* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler: Rawlings in the final dogfight, when his machine guns are disabled by German aircraft. Just as the Black Falcon [[DramaticGunCock dramatically cocks his guns]] to prepare for the killing shot, he flies around, pulls off his pistol, [[BoomHeadshot and shoots him]] straight in the head. Note that that was quite a special case; he didn't use this gun against Wolfert (the German pilot who spared his life) when his machine guns jammed, but considering that this was the ''Black Falcon'' he was dealing with (who [[KickTheDog mercilessly killed an airman on the ground]], as well as having shot down Cassidy), he just ''had'' to kill the bastard in any way he could in revenge.]]
