Captured Wings Wiki


Built in Lincoln by Clayton & Shuttleworth.

On 5 September 1918, when being flown by Captain Herbert A. Patey of No. 210 Squadron RAF over Belgium, it was shot down by Ludwig Beckmann of Jasta 56. Patey survived and was taken prisoner. The Germans repaired the aircraft and flew it until the end of the war. It was then taken to Berlin and exhibited in an air museum.

During World War II it was moved to Poland for safekeeping, and put into storage. Restoration began in 2007 and was completed by 2010. The aircraft can be found at the Polish Aviation Museum in Kraków.
