Flight Officer Ali Riza and his observer Lt Orhan engaged in a dogfight with a French Farman plane during their reconnaissance and patrolling mission with their Albatros AK1 over Kabatepe on November 30, 1915.  The French plane fell in flames between Intepe and Helles as a result of a bullet that hit the fuel tank. This was the first air victory of the Turkish Pilots.
