SOPWITH CAMEL

Familiarization with an Sopwith Camel.

Camel pilots mentioned the well—balanced plane controls, the good pilot’s upward view and the high cruising speed. Due to the aircraft's unique balance, the plane could almost instantly change its heading. The typical combat scenario for the Camel pilot was a dogfight at low and mid altitudes, where the Camel had the advantage.
