  Carrancista Aeroplane: 1916   Carrancista Aeroplane: 1916
One of the durable Moisant Military Monoplanes being flown for the Carranza forces by W. Leonard Bonney. These are the first aircraft believed to have employed markings of any kind in Latin American air warfare. The carried the name of the force 'Division del Norte' in a half circel script on the rudder. Perhaps that makes this a Villista airplane, but just before Villa fell out with Carranza. So technically a Carrancista aircraft.

Taken from the magnificent book, "Latin American Air Wars and Aircraft 1912 - 1969:" Kikoki Publications. Text is available online for free. The book itself is crammed full of artwork and photographs of all sorts of aircraft. If you're interested in the Mexican Revolution it is worth the price of purchase just for the information and images contained in chapter 1.

At left, its first combat pilot, Didier Masson and, on the undercarriage horizontal cross member just behind the feet of the man on the right, the crude bomb racks, fashioned to carry out aerial bombing attacks on Federal warships at Guaymas in May 1913.

  Carrancista Aeroplane: 'Sonora' #2   Carrancista Aeroplane: 'Sonora' #2
The Martin Model 1912 Pusher 'Sonora' enjoyed a rather longer than might be expected service life with the Carranza forces. Here it is seen much later in its Mexican sojourn, probably after one of several crashes, reconfigured with a Curtiss-style forware elevator, the forward verticl fin having been deleted.

  Constitutionalist Aeroplane: 1914   Constitutionalist Aeroplane: 1914
One of the Moisant Military Monoplances (also known as Moisant Tandem Military Monoplanes) acquired by the Constitucionalista (so it could be Carranza, or Obregon) forces in 1914. A true hybrid, the aircraft employed features of Morane-Saulnier influence with Bleriot style undercarriage.

  Constitutionalist Artillery - 1915   Constitutionalist Artillery - 1915
A very famous photo of Mexican troop, in this case scanned from the book Border Fury. The caption in that book describes "barbed wire and interlacing machine gun fire," but the photo shows neither. Sometimes this picture is described as ‘Federal trenches at the Battle of Celaya.’ While General Obregon did pioneer the use of both barbed wire and machine guns with interlocking fields of fire, allegedly because he read about them in books on the war in Europe, the earthworks here would seem to have more in common with redoubts of the Napoleonic Wars rather than W.W.I. Some commentary on the uniforms displayed. None of the troopers seem to have any leatherwork of any kind, but that may simply be because they’ve stripped it off to ease in the heavy labor of setting up their gun positions. There is no footgear easily visible, so we can’t tell whether the crews are wearing low boots, or sandals. We can tell that the uniforms are very close in color to the sandy, sun bleached soil of Sonora, and that the hats are certainly a much darker color than the rest of the uniform.
