    Does anyone know anything about these planes? I found them on the curve for free. I would like to know more.

      The red one is a tri plane. First invented in the 1800's and first flown in Germany early 1900's. The other two are bi planes. Bi planes are still used for crop dusting and here in Florida we see them now and then pulling a banner behind them as they fly along the beaches on the coast.

      I can't see the emblem on the top wing of the yellow plane clearly. If it is red, white and blue then that would indicate a Sopwith aircraft. Normally the emblem was on the sides but whoever built this may not have known or was following kit directions for placement.

      From your one photo, I suspect that they are modern decorative pieces.

      Additional photos may help to confirm.

      Planes like these were flown in WWI, not WWII. Agree, more photos are needed. Maybe a post for each plane also showing the bottoms and any markings.

      kwqd you will find that bi planes were used in WWII as Zeppelin killers. The British, Italians and Germans all used them and usually for specialty runs like low level bombing at night. They were also used by The Korean People's Air force for night bombing during the Korean war.
