Canadian ace William Barker with his Sopwith Camel - Britain's best known fighter of the war, it was introduced in mid 1917. Successor to the Pup, the torque of its powerful rotary engine made it tricky to fly but very manoeuvrable. By the end of the war it was largely used for ground attack, later fighters having superceded it.

No.2 Squadron De Havilland DH-5: never popular as a fighter, because it lost height quickly in combat, and whilst forward visibility was excellent, 'over the shoulder' (which fighter pilots tend to be sensitive about) was dreadful. It was quickly relegated to ground attack, in which role it performed adequately.

Last of Britain’s biplanes Handley Page Heyford unusually had fuselage & upper wing directly attached to one another while lower wing’s thickened midsection’s bomb bay capable of a 2500lb/1134kg load.Open crew compartments & fabric covered wings & aft fuselage belie modern metal monocoque forward fuselage & metal wing.Defensive armament not overly intimidating with 3 .303 Lewis machine gun positions but best defensive strategy was in flying missions at night at up to 142mph/229 km/h.

WWI German Aviator Walter Göttsch of Jasta 8, was a German World War I flying ace credited with 20 aerial victories. Göttsch was killed in action on 10 April 1918 over Gentelles, apparently by return fire from the observer in his final victim, although German accounts also claim he was hit by ground fire. His Fokker Dr.I triplane, marked with a swastika, fell behind British lines and was salvaged.
