U.S. Naval Air Service
Designated as Naval Aviator No. 25,
David Sinton Ingalls arrived in France
early in 1918, assigned to costal patrol duties flying a DH-4. Finding this duty
dull work, Ingalls flew missions with the Sopwith Camel equipped No.213 Squadron
of the Royal Air Force. Leaving and then
returning to No.213 he scored his first victory two days after his return. Over the next two weeks, he destroyed four more
aircraft and a Balloon to become the
U.S. Navy's first and only ace of WWI.
