The Sopwith Camel is among the most significant and famous World War I aircraft. During World War I, Camels downed 1,294 enemy aircraft, which was more than any other Allied fighter. The cowling over the two Vickers machine guns created a distinctive hump, making the name Camel a natural choice. Highlighted in this image are the propellers and engine of the Sopwith F.1 Camel.
