    Default Airco DH-2 WW-1 Fighter (FSX)

    The Airco DH.2 was a single-seat biplane "pusher" aircraft which operated as a fighter during the First World War. It was the second pusher design by Geoffrey de Havilland for Airco. The DH.2 was the first effectively armed British single-seat fighter and enabled Royal Flying Corps (RFC) pilots to counter the "Fokker Scourge" that had given the Germans the advantage in the air in late 1915. Until the British developed an interrupter gear to match the German system, pushers such as the DH.2 and the F.E.2b carried the burden of fighting and escort duties.

    Open cockpit and all. I cannot imagine what it would be like to fly one of those not to mention in combat. Well done!

    Ahh, going back to your roots, I see. If you compare that to our Challenger ultralight, things haven't changed all that much.
    We added a nose gear, lost the bottom wing and the gun (as far as you know) but the configuration is basically the same. -- Bob

    David, Charlie, Larry, Bob, Blair and John, thanks for your comments

    Charlie: don't talk this way to a trusted friend!

    I think it was difficult to shoot this bird down, not much to shoot at....
