Transcript[edit | edit source]
A French plane built in large numbers flown by many legends of the war, including the aces Georges Guynemer, Rene Fonck, Eddie Rickenbacker, and Francesco Barbara [sic] just to name a few.
It was a plane that could out-fly the German D. VII in many situations, and it could measure itself against the famous Sopwith Camel. Its major flaw was its low speed handing, making it somewhat lethal to land, should the pilot make the return flight back to his aerodome.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The name "Francesco Barbara" contains a typo of the last name of the World War 1 Italian ace Francesco Baracca.
