BI Planes of WWI

The single-seat biplane Sopwith Camel is one of the top fighters of all times - it accounted for 1294 aerial victories during World War 1, more than any other Allied aircraft. It was difficult and dangerous to fly for an inexperienced pilot, due to its unforgiving flight characteristics, notably the forward-set center of gravity coupled with the engine's natural torque pull.

The DFW C.V was a two-seater biplane plane designed and produced at the Deutsche Flugzeug Werke near Leipzig. In designing the aircraft, DFW’s designers aimed to create a light but durable airframe. Its structural features included a metal-covered strut in the tail section, a metal cowl protecting the engine, two hollow spars in the wings, and floating ribs. The radiator was mounted above the engine.

The Curtiss Model H was a family of classes of early long-range flying boats, the first two of which were developed directly on commission in the United States in response to the ₤10,000 prize challenge issued in 1913 by the London newspaper, the Daily Mail, for the first non-stop aerial crossing of the Atlantic. As the first aircraft having trans-Atlantic range and cargo-carrying capacity, it became the grandfather development leading to early international commercial air travel

- There were approximately 70 different types of planes in WW1.- The first "fighter planes" were pilots that took sidearms along and shot at other planes. - Later when automatic fire planes were invented, they were invented with timed chains that would fire between the propellers of the plane.
