Abans de la RAF, fou el RFC / Before the RAF (it was the RFC)

El Royal Flying Corps foren les forces aèries britàniques durant la Primera Guerra Mundial. Posteriorment el nom es canvià a Royal Air Force.

 

Aquest caça fou un dels més comuns durant la Gran Guerra, el RAF S.E. 5. Per liar-la, aquí RAF no vol dir Royal Air Force sinó Royal Aircraft Factory!

It's interesting how the Royal Flying Corps, the precursor of the RAF used planes like this one called RAF S.E.5. But here RAF means Royal Aircraft Factory. It's preserved in the RAF Museum in Hendon, London.
