Photo Comment

DH-2 single-seat pusher fighter built by the Aircraft Manufacturing Company for the Royal Flying Corps at Hendon in early 1916. The last figure '3' of the serial is not visible because film of the day could not distinguish between black numeral and red fin strip. Obtained from De Havilland over 50 years ago.
