Airco D.H.7 Fighter

The Airco D.H.7 was a design for a single-seat single-engined tractor fighter, to be powered by a Rolls-Royce Falcon engine. Although the Falcon went on to be a successful engine, powering the Bristol F.2 Fighter, it was not available in any numbers at the time when Geoffrey de Havilland was working on the D.H.7. The lack of a suitable engine led to the cancellation of the project before the design had been completed.
