Featuring a 220 hp Bentley BR.2 rotary engine, cutout upper wing center section and double bay wings, the Snipe was a rugged aircraft that performed well in combat.
This particular aircraft, E8050, was flown by Capt. E.R. King of No. 4 Sq. AFC. King scored his final 8 victories of the war in this aircraft.
