- The RAF Museum American Foundation (RAFMAF) in honour of Joseph Payden
The Camel was the highest scoring British fighter of the First World War. It took its name from the hump over the breeches of the two machine guns. Difficult to fly well, it could kill an unwary pilot. It was ideal for daylight combat but versatile enough to enable it to be used for night fighting and ground attack. This aircraft was probably built by Boulton & Paul at Norwich and was part of the renowned Nash Collection from 1936. Be inspired to take this special opportunity to exclusively adopt an amazing example of RAF First World War aviation history.
