About This File

SPAD XIII C1. "Little Joe" for First Eagles 2 & 1

This is a skin for SPAD XIII C1. "SHOWBIRDS" to be used in  First Eagles 2 and 1

Historical notes:

This skin depict the SPAD XIII C1. Flown by Lieutenant Leo H. "Joe" Dawson of 94th Aero Squadron. 
Ft. Alexander, Koblenz, Germany. April of 1919.

Lt. Leo Dawson achieved 4 victories in WW1, flying with 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, "Little Joe" took part of the "Showbirds" SPADs during the occupation duties in Germany, with more eight colourfull SPADs of 94th Aero Squadron.

This Aircraft flew probablly with Marlin guns, and not with Vickers.
