White & Thompson No 3
« on: May 21, 2020, 06:00:31 PM »
Hi Guys,

Nothing produced here for some time. I came across a photo of a White & Thompson flying boat. A Type 3, which was hit by German anti-aircraft at Zeebrugge in 1915 during WW1. Landed at West-Kapelle in Zeeland and was confiscated by the Dutch Navy. The pilot, Flight Lieutenant D.G Murray was captured. The aircraft was taken into use by the Dutch Navy Aviation Service and I made the profile of this photo. It was used at MKV De Mok in Texel in 1917.

friendly regards
Lauhof

The last one in the series of White & Thompson. This one was armed with a Lewis gun. On observation-mission along the Belgium Coast during WW1
