Col. Barker, V.C. in one of the captured German aeroplanes against which he fought his last air battle.

Цікавий "Фоккер" нумеро "50", такий мені не траплявся. Зверніть увагу, номер також на нижньому крилі.

UPD: Taken at Armour Heights, another airfield built during the war in Toronto, William Barker is running up the Mercedes engine in the Fokker D.VII that he flew during the Toronto-New York Air Race of August 1919. The large ‘50’ painted on the underside of the wings and fuselage was his race number.

Із інших цікавостей - перевернутий лівий елерон, видно частину хреста.
