Operating from Mudros, two aircraft of C Flight attacked the Zeitunlik powder mills and the Demirkhan gun factory, while a third aircraft bombed the railway station at Adrianople (Edirne). The bombers were the B.E. 2-c.
There had been other air raids against Smyrna and Gallipoli from Mudros and elsewhere in the Aegean, but this raid was a rund rip of 300 miles and drew attention at the time, though it would be overshadowed by another raid in 1917. While doing little damage at the time, it reportedly alarmed the population of he Ottoman capital.
Later in the war, the RNAS was merged with the Royal Flying Corps, ancestor of the RAF.
