    Would have to agree, but the model of the B.E.2 would be a C i think.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Morris - I am more than a little embarrassed. I agree. I will award you a point as well.

    Possibly I'm too tired at the end of the week.

    Thank you for pointing out the error.

    Hmm - bit of a quandary now after that last 'oopsie'

    Morris I need the model number.

    Edit: I have 2 iPads and an iPhone and still I don't hear the 'alerts' of the answers? I'm beginning to hate technology today.

    It is indeed!

    Congrats - that's one point to you.

    In 1916 a new generation of German fighters threatened to win air superiority over the Western Front. The French aircraft company, Société pour l'Aviation et ses Dérives (SPAD), responded by developing a replacement for its highly successful SPAD VII. Essentially a larger version of the SPAD VII with a more powerful V-8 Hispano-Suiza engine, the prototype SPAD XIII C.1 ["C" designating Chasseur (fighter) and "1" indicating one aircrew] first flew in March 1917.

    With its 220-hp engine, the SPAD XIII reached a top speed of 135 mph -- about 10 mph faster than the new German fighters. It carried two .303-cal. Vickers machine guns mounted above the engine. Each gun had 400 rounds of ammunition, and the pilot could fire the guns separately or together. Technical problems hampered production until late 1917, but nine different companies built a total of 8,472 SPAD XIIIs by the time production ceased in 1919.
