This aircraft hold markings of one of many Hanriots flown by our better ace during WWI : baron Willy Coppens de Houthulst. He shoot a lot of German Balloons (35 on a total of 37 official victories) on this aircraft type exclusively.  With these number of balloon's victories, Willy Coppens is probably one of better aces for this dangerous task.
