Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8 Bomber Plane

The Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8 was a WW1 bomber and biplane reconnaissance aircraft designed for the RFC (Royal Flying Corps) to replace it's obsolete Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2b and B.E.2c aircraft. The Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8 was not a particularly good aircraft, at best being describable as satisfactory. The R.E.8 was retired as soon as WW1 ended, but over 4,000 aircraft had been produced by this time many of which soon found their way into the civilian market.
