German Leutnant Oswald Boelcke scores his first victory, a French Morane Parasol of MS15, while flying an Albatros C.I two-seater with Leutnant Heinz von Wühlisch as his observer and gunner.

A force of six German Navy airships (five Zeppelins and a Schütte-Lanz) sets out to attack a Royal Navy force of light cruisers, destroyers, and the seaplane tender HMS Engadine operating in the German Bight. A British reconnaissance achieves nothing; British seaplanes are unable to launch in heavy seas to pursue the airships, the airships do no damage to the British ships, and although British ships fire on some of the airships, they fail to shoot any down.
