Re: Last biplane v biplane combat??

In Ethiopia. 16 October 1941 "a Hurricane and three Gladiators nearly caught one of the CR 42s over Azozo, but it escaped." (Air War East Africa 1940-1941, Sutherland and Canwell, Pen and Sword, 2009.)

That's the last British encounter I have found, if it counts.

If Greece counts as Africa, there were several Gladiator/CR 42 encounters, but that was earlier in 1941.
