The morning of Sept 14 1918, Luke and two others strayed from formation pursuing an Observation Balloon. Through a joined effort, the balloon went down and Luke received a third of the credit for the kill.

The next chapter of Lt Frank Luke Jr’s legacy includes his best friend Lt Joseph Frank "Fritz" Wehner. Because of Luke's strong personality he didn't have many close friends in his squadron. Wehner was one of them & many say they couldn't have been more opposite.
