EXT. SKIES OVER FRANCE 1917 - DAY
CAMERA drifts towards a large puffy cloud floating 6000ft above the
French countryside ...
... a roar of engines - sounding like angry buzzing bees - and three
... six ... NINE SOPWITH CAMEL FIGHTER PLANES emerge from the cloud,
flying in tight formation. These are frail looking, but deadly single
seat BIPLANES, each armed with twin Vickers machine guns. The height of
1917 aircraft design, built for the sole purpose of blasting German
planes out of the skies.
SUPER "FRANCE 1917"
JACK DRISCOLL and his buddy, MATT HAMON are flying two of the CAMELS at
the rear of the formation. An UPTIGHT BRIT - McKECKNIE, is flying along
side them. He's as JUMPY AS HELL, scanning the skies for enemy planes.
MATT looks around furtively. None of the other pilots are looking in
their direction. With practiced skill, MATT reaches down for something
in his tiny cockpit ... HE STANDS UP, wedging the control column
between his knees and turns back towards JACK'S Camel ... a BASEBALL IN
HIS HAND!! With equal proficiency, JACK jams his control column between
his knees and stands, brandishing a BASEBALL BAT! Both pranksters have
to fight against the fierce slipstream as MATT THROWS THE BALL.I across
fifty feet of sky towards JACK! He prepares to swing, but the ball
FALLS SHORT, getting MINCED in JACK'S propeller! A quick look around to
make sure no one is looking, and MATT reaches down again, grabbing
ANOTHER BASEBALL out of the bag of balls he carries in his cockpit!
