When the movie “Hell’s Angels” hit screen, audiences got to see a host of authentic WW1 aircraft.  This isn’t one of them.  It is a post-war Sikorsky S-29 done up like a German Gotha bomber.  Close enough.  The bottom photo shows the S-29 posing as a real bomber, something the Air Corps opted against. The one and only S-29 crashed during the filming of Hell’s Angels and was junked.
