Avro 504K

The Avro 504 was produced in larger numbers than any other aircraft of the First World War. Due to the variety of engines installed in contemporary training aircraft, Avro fitted the 504K with an engine mounting that adapted to carry any power plant that was available. As well as becoming the standard Royal Air Force trainer, the 504k was pressed into emergency service as an anti-Zeppelin fighter in early 1918.
