Bus No.7 - RAF R.E 8
Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8 - 52 Squadron - WWI Aviation Art Painting Print by Russell Smith ASAA
This particular "Harry Tate", RE8 A4267, served with 52 Sq from February to March of 1918. Unlike most RE8s which carried only single Lewis gun at the observer's position, this one carried a twin Lewis mount. Interestingly, the covering of the center portion of the bottom wings was cut away (doubtless for improved visibility), leaving only the spar tubes.
