A Farman MF.7 of the Belgian army
The Farman MF.7 was developed by the aviator and engineer Maurice Farman in 1913. The single-engine reconnaissance aircraft, 20 of which were ordered by the War Ministry, carried out the first bombing of a German target at the beginning of the First World War. It was equipped with a Renault eight-cylinder V-engine with 70 horsepower and a two-blade wooden propeller. Later used as a training and liaison aircraft, the Farman MF.7 was bought by several countries allied to France, including Great Britain, which nicknamed it Longhorn. The example on display at the Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace (Air and Space Museum) bears the colours of the Belgian army.
