Re: Photo FE 2d?

Hello,


A nice photo of a british machine at :


https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-XL-WK2-...oAAOSwvgheVSmQ


Can anyone assist with the identity. I'm tempted to say RAF FE 2d, Possibly serial A5, but I'm not certain.


Regards,


Clint

Clint

You are ever so right. Aircraft in question is indeed the FE.2d A5 which was lost during its transit flight to St Omer 1 June 1916.

Not very funny for its crew.

Cheers
Stig

Re: Captured British Aircraft

Nice Clint

Duncan Grinnell-Milne's aircraft.
I am sure he listened to the wind in the wires all the way down to landing....

Cheers

Re: Captured British Aircraft

Hello,


Since posting the last link to the Airco DH.4, I have received a copy of Les Rogers British Aviation Squadron Markings of World War I. On P.25 there are two photos of A2170, also a DH.4, of 25 Squadron with the drunken crescent moon image shown on the aircraft above, so perhaps it too is a 25 Squadron machine?


One of the photos can be seen here:

Re: Captured British Aircraft

Yes Clint

Must be No 25 Sq.
Looks like A76xx to me. If so there are four possible aircraft
A7664 missing 27 Mar 1918
A7670 missing 27 June 1918
A7680 missing 5 Feb 1918
A7697 missing 26.2.1918

Cheers
Stig
