Jane's All The World Aircraft 1919 /Jane's/

Three Armstrong-Whitworths - Two of the F.K.10 Type Quadruplanes and an FK.8 with a Sunbeam-Coataien "Arab" Engine. Eight F.K 10s went to the RNAS for fighting and bombing.
Three-quarter Front View of the Armstrong-Whitworth "Armadillo" as originally flown (220 h.p. B.R.2 Engine). The F.M.4 Armadillo, of which only one was built, was designed to the A1(a) fighter specification.
The Armadillo was found to possess unsatisfactory flying characteristics and a second prototype was completed but never flown.
Front View of the Austin "Ball" (200 h.p. Hispano-Suiza Engine).
Side View of an Experimental Austin Triplane
Front view of the Avro "Spider" showing the wing bracing system (110 h.p. Le Rhone)
Side view of the Avro "Spider" (110 h.p. Le Rhone)
The Spider was an unsponsored private-venture fighter which proved extremely manoeuvrable.
Истребитель "Бэнтэм" со стационарным мотором ABC "Уосп" / Side View of the B.A.T. "Bantam" (A.B.C. 200 h.p. "Wasp" engine).
Довоенный снимок "Скаута" А. Внешне самолет отличался упрощенным капотам двигателя с большим вырезом снизу и отсутствием предохранительных дуг под нижним крылом. / Side View of Bristol "Scout", early type.

Three-quarter Front View of the Bristol Monoplane.
Three-quarter Rear View of second prototype Bristol F.2A "Fighter" with 150 h.p. Hispano-Suiza engine. Production F.2As adopted the 190 h.p. Rolls-Royce Falcon engine.

Бомбардировщик и разведчик G.100 "Элефант" / Side View of a Martinsyde "Elephant", one of the most sucessful machines of 1916-17.
The F.E.2b. With Beardmore engine of 120 h.p, fore-runner of the Rolls engined type, which it resembles in general design. This machine, with slight modifications and a 160 h.p. Beardmore engine, was still in use at the end of the war, as a night-bombing machine.
The F.E.2b. Viewed from below.
With the R.A.F. in the Field: - A R.A.F. Padre preaching to officers and men of the R.A.F. from the nacelle of a F.E.2b Night-bomber. It will be noted that the men still wore R.F.C. uniform. This custom still prevalied in many parts until the middle of 1919, when nearly all the men were demobilised.
An F.E.2d. A photograph from Germany, via a neutral country, showing an F.E.2d, which landed by error at Lille and tried to turn over on reaching the ground. It will be seen that it resembles the F.E.2b, but it has a 250 h.p. Rolls-Royse engine instead of the 150 h.p. Beardmore. It is regretted that the only photographs available are those of damaged machines, but the R.A.F. machines, being definitely of Government design, may not be photographed under normal conditions.
The F.E.8. With Monosoupape Gnome engine. A single-seat fighter.

The Albatros DV entered service in May 1917 to counter British types such as the SE5; although it was not as promising as expected, it was still ordered in large numbers and remained in use to the end of the war. Powered by a 180hp or 200hp Mercedes DIIIa it had a top speed of 116mph (187kph).

THE 300 H.P. CAPRONI BIPLANE IN FLIGHT. - These machines, which have been frequently mentioned in the reports of Italian aerial war work, are fitted with three motors of 100 h,p, each. One of these is mounted in the central nacelle, and drives a propeller, while the other two are placed some distance out on the lower plane, each driving a tractor screw. From each of these engines a structure resembling in shape and construction an ordinary fuselage runs back to form a support for the tall planes, serving at the same time to streamline the engines. In the nose of the central nacelle are seats for three, a pilot and two gunners. For long-dlstance bombing raids the Capronis have proved particularly suitable on account of their good weight-carrying capacity.
A 1,000 h.p. Caproni Triplane, of 1917, nose to nose with a 100 h.p. Caproni Monoplane of 1915 type.

Avro 504B Biplane, 80h.p. Gnome, about to start. This type of Avro was one of the successful machines in early days of the war, owing to its durability, speed, and climbing power. It is still one of the most efficient machines for its power, but is, of course, surpassed in actual performance by machines with bigger engines, so is very largely used to-day as a training machine for Service pilot practicising cross-country flying before passing on to the higher-powered war machines. It will be remembered that 504As carried out the first ever strategic bombing raid, on 21 November 1914, when three RNAS aircraft attacked the Zeppelin sheds at Friedichshafen.

Front View of the captured D.F.W. Aviatik in Paris. - The shape of the nose shows clearly how the Germans obtained better propeller efficiency than we did, and also how, by fitting their radiators directly in the slip stream, they managed to run big engines with small radiators. These points contrasted favourably with our own contemporary methods.
