This months featured plane is the
Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2 (Blériot Experimental)
The B.E.2 was a British single-engine two-seat biplane, designed by Geoffrey de Havilland.
It was in service with the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) from 1912 until the end of World War I.
Initially used as front-line reconnaissance aircraft and light bombers, variants of this type were also used
as night fighters, trainers, communications aircraft and anti-submarine coastal patrol aircraft.
About 3,500 were built. With a maximum speed of only 72 mph, climb to 10,000 ft took 45 min.
Surviving and restored aircraft, and reproductions, are on display in museums like the Imperial
War Museum in London and the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, among others.
