Caudron G3

Serial No: 3066
Period: WWI
Reference: 72/A/1620
Museum: London
Location: Hangar 2
On Display: Yes

The Caudron G3 first appeared in France in May 1914 but saw no British military service before World War One began. During the early months of war the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service had to find replacement aircraft wherever they could be found. They naturally turned to the native French aircraft industry to supplement the inadequate supplies of aircraft from Great Britain.

The G3 was one of several French designs adopted by both British flying services.
