Planes were still a rare sight in the sky when theworld was plunged into war in 1914. The “flying machines” seemed to have little use, but the ever-evolving tactics of war quickly propelled them from rickety canvas-over-wood reconnaissance planes to full-fledged aerial combat weapons that engaged in spectacular dogfights. This exciting new coin series features three of the most successful Allied fighter planes of theFirst World War, beginning with the British-built Royal Aircraft Factory S. Introduced in 1917, this biplane was on the front lines of innovation. It could fly up to 222 km/h and remain airborne formore than two hours, two factors that enabled the Allies to regain and maintain air superiority until the war’s end in 1918. Although Canada did not have its own air force, thousands of Canadians enlisted as aircrew personnel in the United Kingdom’s Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) or the Royal Flying Corps (RFC), with some of them undoubtedly taking to the air in RoyalAircraft Factory S.
