Horstmann, Heinrich (Flg.) FA 8, * 02.05.1893 Stift Quersheim + 17.10.1917 Ieper
Hädrich was waarnemer van piloot Heinrich Horstmann. Hun LVG C-type werd neergehaald door James McCudden. Het vliegtuig kreeg achteraf het Britse nummer G81 toegekend alhoewel er nog nauwelijks iets bruikbaars van overbleef: “He [McCudden] climbed with his patrol to 13,000 feet and found two enemy two-seaters. One of the enemy machines disappeared east, but the other Capt McCudden managed to surprise from behind and fire a burst into [it] which sent it down in a steep dive. The machine burst into flames; one wing came off, the pieces falling north-west of Dickebush.”
