E8105 at the NASM, Smithsonian, Washington, built in August 1918. The original owner of record in the United States was Arthur Le Barron, possibly the importer of the airplane. It was sold to Leo Langevin from Binghamton, N.Y., who applied for registration in 1928. He refurbished the Snipe with new fabric covering, refinishing of the wood, and the mounting of a 130-horsepower Clerget engine. Langevin sold the airplane to Myron A. "Jimmy" Romberger of Endicott, N.Y., in September 1930. Romberger converted the Snipe into a two-place airplane and in August 1932 sold it to Roosevelt Field, Inc., Mineola, N.Y., which placed it in the aviation museum at Roosevelt Field. It was purchased by Cole Palen of Rhinebeck, N.Y., in 1951. The Snipe was among the original group of aircraft that formed the core of the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Museum collection. Palen flew the Snipe in his air shows until August 1966, when the airplane was severely damaged in a forced landing after engine trouble while piloted by Paul Richards. It was restored by Gordon Bainbridge and retired to Palen's non-flying collection. During this period, the Clerget engine was replaced with the Bentley B.R.2 that is now mounted on the airplane. Palen lent the airplane to NASM for display in the museum's new World War I aviation exhibition in 1987. The airplane was re-painted and given minor restoration treatment in preparation for installation in the exhibition, which opened to the public in 1991. The museum obtained ownership of the Snipe in 1994 as part of a bequest in Palen's will that stipulated that one aircraft from his collection should be donated to the NASM after his death.
