The De Havilland D.H.2

To celebrate the Centenary of the founding of the Royal Air Force in April 1918, The History Show has put together an entertaining and informative display called the Birth of the RAF. It comprises a tented display around a De Havilland DH2 aircraft with pilot, ground crew and equipment displayed throughout the day, featuring weapons demonstrations and talks about the life and times of the plane and personnel. The show can be for 1 or two days depending on your venue, and costs will include transport, insurance and performance fees.

The Airco DH.2 was a single-seat biplane “pusher” aircraft which operated as a fighter during the First World War. It was the second pusher design by Geoffrey de Havilland for Airco, based on his earlier DH.1 two-seater. The DH.2 was the first effectively armed British single-seat fighter and enabled Royal Flying Corps (RFC) pilots to counter the “Fokker Scourge” that had given the Germans the advantage in the air in late 1915. Until the British developed a synchronisation gear to match the German system, pushers such as the DH.2 and the F.E.2b carried the burden of fighting and escort duties.
