DH-4 Data Plate

Note: This item is currently in storage.

This is a data plate from a DH-4 aircraft with the serial number 12664, U.S. number 32722, and made by The Dayton Wright Airplane Co. in Dayton, Ohio. Per donor, this DH-4 data plate was brought home by the donor's father who served in France during WWI servicing aircraft;  the DH-4 that this data plate came from was damaged and later destroyed. The DH-4, modeled after the British DeHavilland design, was the only U.S.-built aircraft to see combat during WWI.

There is a reproduction DH-4B aircraft on display in the museum's Early Years Gallery.

Donated by William Robertson.
