|Portuguese Farman F.40 in Mozambique, during the East African Campaign of World War I|
|Manufacturer||Farman Aviation Works|
Developed from a mix of the Maurice Farman designed MF.11 and the Henry Farman designed HF.22, the F.40 (popularly dubbed the Horace Farman) had an overall smoother outline and smoother crew nacelle. A pair of upper tail booms supported a horizontal tailplane and a curved fin. The aircraft went into production in 1915.
Forty French Air Force escadrilles (squadrons) were equipped with F.40s. They operated for just over a year, but were replaced in early 1917.
Italian aircraft maker Savoia-Marchetti built F.40s for use by the police force until 1922.
