Harry's WWI airplane
Harry’s photo of a Martinsyde F.4 Buzzard. It’s unclear if he flew this plane or worked on it as a mechanic.
The Martinsyde F.4 prototype was completed in the summer of 1918. In tests carried out by the Royal Air Force of Britain the aircraft's performance and flying characteristics turned out so well that an order for a large-scale serial production was given immediately. A total of 1450 aircraft were ordered but due to delays in engine deliveries only 7 aircraft were handed-over to the Royal Air Force before the end of World War I.
