FRANZ BUCHNER | WW1 Ace
Germany's Aces of World War I
Franz BÃ¼chner (2 January 1898-18 March 1920) was one of the most successful German fighter aces of the First World War.
BÃ¼chner was born in Leipzig in the Kingdom of Saxony and volunteered for the army in September 1914, a few months shy of his 17th birthday. In March 1917 BÃ¼chner became a fighter pilot, joining the Prussian Jagdstaffel 9 where he scored his first and only victory with them, on 17 August. Upon his transfer to Jagdstaffel 13, he found his niche under Rudolph Berthold, one of Germany's most dedicated soldiers. However, it was several months before he scored again, on 15 October. Franz ended the war with 40 victories. (From Wikipedia)
