At the end of May 1918 the Royal Navy’s ‘DCB Section’ had the use of two Armstrong Whitworth aircraft Nos. 5082, 5117, in charge of Captain Tate, R.A.F. for their trained operators to control their unmanned DCB vessels during the trials at Dover.

Any one know which aircraft they were (probably old FK 3s) and where they we based?
