08.07.2023 - 05.00 P.M. • The legendary aerial combat of Guynemer vs. Udet

In addition to many titles, Georges Guynemer also wore that of 'LE CHEVALIER DE L'AIR', a title he was given after his legendary 'dogfight' with the German pilot Ernst Udet. In the heat of battle, Udet's machine gun stalled. Guynemer, however, noticed that something was wrong with the German pilot. Instead of shooting him, he flew past him in greeting. An act of chivalry.

This legendary dogfight is simulated by the Moorsele flying club while the spectators can follow an animation on a large screen.
