ANZAC WW1 Airshow at Masterton : Royal Aircraft Factory RE.8

Here's another interesting aircraft - the RAF RE.8 - 'RE' referring to 'Reconnaissance Experimental'. Interesting perhaps because of the position of the gunner [pretty much, if not actually, standing in the rear cockpit]. Also, I'm not sure I would want to go into battle, flying something with the word 'experimental' in its name. I guess those were much different days!
