During WW1 the Royal Aircraft Factory printed some half a million plans of their designs of aircraft. These were distributed around the woodworking industry to produce fuselages, wings and tail units to meet the desperate need for aircraft on the Western and other Fronts.

Many of these plans were photographed and survive in our photographic archive.
