The Last Flight of the Eagle of Lille

The Last Flight of the Eagle of Lille

18th June 1916

George Reynolds McCubbin has only been in France a few weeks when he, and his Observer acting Sergeant James H Waller were involved in aerial combat with Max Immelmann - the Eagle of Lille - and at the time Germany’s leading air ace. As Immelman was attacking a British FE2B plane he became a target himself and was shot down and killed by McCubbin and Waller.
