Sopwith F.1 Camel
Single engine single seat fighter
The Belgian Aviation Militaire has received an estimated total of 50 Sopwith F.1 Camels spread over three batches. A first delivery of ten aircraft arrived between November 1917 and 4 January 1918, a second batch arrived in February/March 1918 while a third batch followed between June and October 1918. It is believed that two Boulton Paul built Sopwith Snipes were included in the last batch. At least 6 Camels were delivered without notifying the Aéronautique Militaire after November 1st, 1918. These airframes remained in the open and were dismantled after the war. Some Camels were still in service with the Aéronautique Militaire in 1922/23.
