This is a skin for SPAD XIII C1. "SHOWBIRDS" to be used in First Eagles 2 and 1
This skin depict the SPAD XIII C1. Flown by Lieutenant William H. Palmer of 94th Aero Squadron.
Ft. Alexander, Koblenz, Germany. April of 1919.
Lt. William W. Palmer achieved 3 victories in WW1, flying with the 94th Aero Squadron.
The pilots of the 94th Aero Squadron decided to paint their SPAD XIIIs. In an attempt to outdo one another they came up with what were termed the "showbirds". The planes were painted up for the April 1919 Air show at Koblenz.
During the Spring of 1919, "Diamond Dick" took part of the "Showbirds" SPADs during the occupation duties in Germany, with more eight colourfull SPADs of 94th Aero Squadron.
