This Week’s Hints to help you along:
- Designed specifically for ground attack, yet a triplane!
- The personnel look quite lax — yet is it from the interwar period?
- A single pilot airplane — no copilot! — but had two gunners.
- Fitted with armor plates so it could survive while strafing trenches.
So do you know what this aircraft is?
Post a REPLY below with your best guess!

That looks like the Sopwith “Cobham” from 1919.
Looks like a Boeing GA-1. The first of the Air Service Engineering Divisions armored GAX (Ground Attack Experimental) series aircraft.
Yes, it is one of the 10 Boeing Model 10 GA1s built for the US in 1921.
It could be an early “Albatros” D111.
The aircraft is a Boeing GA-1.
Designed by I.M.Laddon.
First flew in May 1920.
