Panoramic view inside the SPAD XVI. The Spad XVI was a two-seat version of the very successful single-seat Spad fighters of World War I. An otherwise undistinguished aircraft, the Spad XVI in the Museum's collection is significant because of its association with Brigadier General William "Billy" Mitchell. He piloted this Spad XVI on many observation flights over the front lines during pivotal battles in the last months of the war.
