Trivia: Blaine is given a small bear which he carries as a good luck charm. This is a reference to the 1927 movie Wings, the first ever film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, in which a pilot also carries a small bear as a good luck charm.

Question: The Dr. 1's are repeatedly shown opening their attack by diving down on their enemy. I know that Dr. 1's (because of their tri-wing configuration) had excellent climbing abilities, but it was hopeless at diving. So my question is: was this a common tactic for German pilots (specifically in the Dr. 1) to do this?
