Panoramic view inside the Nieuport 28C.1.

Appearing in mid 1917, the Nieuport 28C.1 was rejected by the French in favor of the sturdier, more advanced Spad XIII. Having no suitable fighter design of its own, the United States adopted the Nieuport 28 as a stop-gap measure. It became the first fighter aircraft to serve with an American fighter unit under American command and in support of U.S. troops.
