The Sopwith Aviation Company produced the Camel F.1, a famous biplane of World War I. First flown in 1916, The Camel was the most successful fighter plane of the war and difficult to defeat when flown by a skilled pilot. Although highly maneuverable the Sopwith Camel was tricky to fly and more men lost their lives while learning to fly it than did during combat.
