A War Bird in the Belly of the Mouse by David Parish-Whittaker

Writers of the Future XXIV

Nigel was a fighter pilot in WWI who has been reincarnated to reenact WWI air battles more than 100 years later. Franks, a German pilot, has also returned to train and give people the opportunity to sense what that life was like--albeit, hamming up his role to the annoyance of Nigel. However, an overeager Marine pilot, who hasn’t seen as much action as he’d like, butts heads with Nigel over flight experience and tries to shoot down a another pilot.

Interesting thought sprouts from this: that people are a product of their time and culture (pointing out exceptions as well).
