Greetings All,

For your consideration is Airco D.H.4 N.6416 "Sultan Selim II" of RAF 220 Squadron. This Westland-built unit was sent to the Aegean on 10 November 1917 and arrived at No. 2 Wing RNAS at Murdos on 1 January 1918. It operated out of numerous aerodromes in the region eventually being assigned to 'F' Squadron, (or possibly 'C' Squadron depending on which source you reference), on Imbros by the spring of 1918. This is where the first incarnation of the sunburst was applied in white directly onto the PC10 color, and it was given the name "Moorq". Sometime after the formation of the Royal Air Force on April 1, 1918 the plane was assigned to 475 Flight of 220 Squadron RAF at Imbros and by September of that same year it had been painted over with the red and yellow sunburst and the name changed to "Sultan Selim II".

It still fits in with 777's historical criteria. We after all have several official Dh4 skins for the US built Dh4's that had 400 hp Liberty engines. No reason to give a no vote.


Great Job.
