Figured this was as good a place as any to put this
 The Blackburn triplane of 1917, made for anti-Zeppelin duty only one made as far as I can find , only tested for one month before being written off as useless. First pusher tripe fighter that I have seen.

Designed by Harris Booth and it shared many basic design features with the A.D Scout aka "Sparrow"
Zeppelin fighter he had designed while at the Air Department of the Admiralty. Four "Sparrow" were
built by Blackburn for the Department.

And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."

Are those hydrofoils, or gangplanks?

If they really are hyrdofoils, I presume their purpose is to prevent the nose digging in during large power additions or deceleration.
