Can anyone identify what type of aircraft it is? Aitchbee 21:29 03 Aug 2018 I don't know the answer but why make it easy for the enemy by having a ruddy great Target painted on the outside of your warplane? john bunyan 21:38 03 Aug 2018 To stop your own side shooting at you! Aitchbee 21:41 03 Aug 2018 jb, thanks. john bunyan 21:51 03 Aug 2018 The tailplane does not look like a Sopwith Pup or Camel Belatucadrus 23:47 03 Aug 2018 Answer Looks like a sesquiplane and that would make it a Nieuport fighter, there doesn't appear to be a faired in pilots headrest, so I think it's a model 11. Fruit Bat /\0/\ 18:41 07 Aug 2018 Possibly a 17 withe the shape of the rudders click here Brumas2 22:01 07 Aug 2018 Belatucadrus & Fruit Bat /\0/\. I'm pretty certain it is a Nieuport fighter, we will never be able to really tell because it is pretty well wrecked! Well Done both. Belatucadrus 09:01 08 Aug 2018 From Model 16 on Nieuports had a headrest which is absent in the photo, so I'll stick with Model 11. You may find this interesting Click Here john bunyan 09:14 08 Aug 2018 Good find, both. The shape of the tailplane / rudder was the key. Brumas 09:16 08 Aug 2018 Belatucadrus, duly bookmarked for later perusal, thanks. This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
