The Sopwith Camel has two claims to fame of interest to me. The first is that it is the aircraft that Snoopy (of the “Peanuts” comic strip) imagines his doghouse to be, when he’s in his WWI flying ace mood. The second (connected) is that it is the aircraft that Canadian pilot Captain Arthur “Roy” Brown was flying when he shot down the [in]famous Red Baron, Captain Manfred von Richthofen.The Red Baron, a German fighter pilot, was the most successful flying ace of World War I, with 80 confirmed kills.
