There were a few cases where ground gunners did succeed but they are very rare and likely did not involve large deflection angles.
You're forgetting that us Aussies are taught to shoot Kangaroos from an early age-once you've mastered dropping a boomer on the hop with a single well placed shot from a .22, dropping something as big, slow, and bright, as the Red Baron's plane, with hundreds of shots would be a piece of cake. In fact the guy who got him was probably blindfolded or shooting backwards with a mirror.

Seriously though, there was a post here about a month ago about the Red Baron-and the bullet wounds that killed him.

Hey Benny, what shop is that? I know the Wright Brothers had a few. One is at the Henry Ford/Greenfield village in Michigan USA. Where is that one at?

That would be great. The one in Michigan is well worth seeing. Henry Ford had the shop and thier house from Ohio moved there. Orville even helped him find original furnishings for both when he was alive.
