Blackburn TB 1517

Blackburn TB 1517

Here we see the Blackburn TB (or Twin Blackburn) No.1517, an anti-Zeppelin aircraft designed to fly above the airships and drop incendiary Rankin darts on them. Only nine were built, and they only saw limited service during 1917. The aircraft had two fuselages, and part of the lefthand fuselage on this aircraft can just be seen below the righthand one.
