The Great War Flying Museum

To honour the pilots who served with gallantry and distinction during the Great War of 1914 – 1918.

Sopwith Camel

The museum’s Sopwith Camel is a work in progress. Initially, as proof of concept, a wooden mock-up fuselage was built.

Then on to the steel work…

Wooden formers and tinsmithing to get things looking the way they should

The M14 up front

Details, details… Some undercarriage fittings

Wheels with brakes

Some work on the tail feathers

Ribs, then wing assemblies

Test fitting bits in the office

Putting some of the bits together at one of our open houses

Ultimately, it will be finished in the colours B6313 as flown by Canada’s Major  William G. Barker, VC.
