WHAT HAPPENS TO BULLETS
FIRED AT AEROPLANES
It is believed among the armies in
Europethat bullets fired vertically
upwards at aircraft never descend as
bullets, the intense and prolonged
friction of their flight to the limit of
the trajectory and the subsequent de
scent of what is left of them com
pletely dissipating them into vapor.
Thousands of bullets have recently
been fired at aircraft, but none has
been positively known to descend, ac
cording to the men at the front This
has for a long time puzzled scien
tists. British savants claim to have
recovered bullets fired vertically in
the air, but tests in America have
been invariably unsuccessful.
