Farman F.40

The Farman F.40 was a joint design by the two Farman brothers, Maurice and Henri, combining features of the MF.11 and the HF.22. The rear engine, "pusher" configuration gave the gunner an open field of fire.

The F.40 was used as a fighter and light bomber. Its long wingspan made it stable but slow to maneuver and French squadrons began replacing it in 1916, although it continued to be used by allies throughout the war.

This plane carries markings typical of the Belgian Air Service.
