RFC Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c two-seat reconnaissance light bomber
The Royal Aircraft Factory developed the BE light bomber Biplane between 1911 and 1914 but the Royal Flying Corps ordered them to act as their first reconnaissance aircraft. BE2s were used in the Middle East and for Anti-submarine patrols. It only had a maximum speed of 75mph at sea level. By 1915, it's lack of manoeuvrability and restricted field of fire from the observer's front cockpit, made it vulnerable by the new German Fokker Monoplanes . It was gradually replaced with the RE8 reconnaissance biplane at the end of 1916. It was withdrawn to England to protect against Zepplin raids. BE2s shot down five of these German Airships.
