Those are Germans, not Russians.

They look pretty friendly - was it normal for German soldiers to stand arm in arm?

They do make a cute couple. If you think about it, they were pretty lucky to have found each other; I'm sure neither of them thought they'd ever meet anyone who really understood.

Technically, I think these are observers rather than plane-spotters. The former are what the military had before radar, while the latter are amateur plane-enthusiasts, in British English at any rate.

Cory, you were already told that the soldiers on the photograph are Germans, not Russians. Here's another fyi: the word "Soviet" doesn't apply in 1917. I'll leave it to you to do some wiki reading to find out why.
I hope you do more research for your books than you do for your posts here.

I told you not to cross-breed Daleks and Cybermen, but would you listen? WOULD YOU!?

A few years ago I had the idea of something like this for bird watchers, except instead of the hearing tubes there would be an array of microphones around the binoculars or scope, with some digital signal processing and a display showing which way to point the optics.
