First aerial combat

I am currently thinking of making the models of the first two aircrafts to
have been involved in a real fight : the Voisin of Frantz/Qu=E9nault=
and the "Aviatik" of ??? (Germany). My problem is many folds. What type
of Farman was it? What were his colours? What type of "Aviatik" was it
confronting? I understand that, at that time, all the German planes were
Aviatiks for the French. Who was the crew of the German plane? As you can
see, there is much to do, but I'm currently feeling more and more at a loss.
Help me, please.
