DVD Airco DH2 - Flight of remembrance - Wickenby to the Somme

Recommended Posts

S! All,

For those like me that love the Airco DH2... a short trailer of a real life flight made on the 11th, November 2011!

The Airco DH2 based at Wickenby Airfield, is an authentic replica of the WW1 fighter biplane that rose to fame during the Battle of the Somme, between July and November 1916. Led by Major Lanoe Hawker of 24 RFC Squadron, the DH2 reclaimed the skies of the Western Front, and ended the reign of Germany's Fokker Eindecker. Wickenby's Replica is painted in the military colours of Hawker's aircraft, which inspired 24 RAF Squadron to invite the DH2 team to fly over the unveiling of a new memorial to Hawker in France, on 11th November 2011.

Cheers,
GenMarkof

ps: would love to see this plane in Flying Circus Vol. 2! ;)

Cool.

Has anyone been to Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in New York?

S! Jaus,

No, but that could be a great event to meet up for those that can make it!

I know that a few years ago, many virtual pilot did meet up at that event.

Cheers,
