SPAD S.VII

Remarks by Carlo Soliani: "Probably this aircraft could be identified as a SPAD VII (and not as a SPAD XIII), mainly because the machine gun is clearly visible, while in XIII the machine guns were partially faired into the the engine cowling. Moreover, the interconnecting strut between fuselage and upper wing is typical of VII, with vertical elements, while XIII had oblique elements."
