Sopwith Pup (Original) by Daniel-Wales-Images Sopwith Pup (Original) by Daniel-Wales-Images
Imperial War Museum Duxford 2016.

This Sopwith Pup was recently restored to flying condition, making her first flight late in the season last year. She is operated by the Historic Aircraft Collection on behalf of her owner. I hope to see her in the air soon. It would be nice to think that someday we could see her over at Old Warden flying with the Shuttleworth Collection's example. Though there are superb Sopwith Pup reproductions flying thanks to the Vintage Aviator Ltd down in New Zealand, this example and Shuttleworth's are the sole surviving original examples currently airworthy.

There aren't many 100 year old planes in flying condition, and I didn't know this one was. Thank you.
