RE7 – “Utterly Useless”

Poor Wee RE7.
An attempt by the Royal Aircraft Factory in 1915 to produce a bomber/reconnaissance aeroplane.
Unsuccessful,underpowered – and dismissed by Trenchard,
Chief of the Royal Flying Corps as “Utterly Useless”.
The weather in the painting is an attempt to sum up its overall performance. Very Dull.
