To honour the pilots who served with gallantry and distinction during the Great War of 1914 – 1918.
GROUND TO SKY: THE GREAT WAR IN MOTION
The Great War Flying Museum presents a day filled with World War One living history: airplanes, cavalry, motorbikes and more.
100 years ago, at the end of WWI, the Fokker D.VII was the most feared German aircraft in the skies. One of the Fokker D.VIIs that was handed over to the Allies at the Armistice had a colourful paint job and a Canadian connection. In 1919, “RK”, the plane of Richard Kraut, joined the first squadron of the newly formed Canadian Air Force where it was flown by Canadian heroes such as Billy Bishop and William Barker.
After nine years of dedicated volunteer work, the Museum’s full sized replica Fokker D.VII “RK” has been test flown! At Ground To Sky, “RK” will be back in the air for all to see. “RK” joins the museums fleet of five replica aircraft representing England, Canada, America and Germany.
