The Sopwith Camel was a World War I biplane fighter aircraft. One of the most successful aces of WWI was a Camel pilot named Roy Brown. Roy is the ace credited with shooting down the Red Baron. In addition, he never lost a pilot in his flight during combat, a rare distinction for an air unit commander of that war. During WWI Camel pilots shot down 1,294 enemy aircraft, more than any other fighter of the conflict.
While not particularly fast, its very forward center of gravity made the Camel both tricky to fly and very maneuverable in dogfights. The maneuverability was a bear for inexperienced pilots but in the hands of a skilled pilot like Roy Brown the mobility of the Camel made it the most successful plane of WWI.
