I just saw that the MAM is getting a very nice replica of one of these... :)

One of TVAL's? Or another one, either way I look forward to your eventual captures of her. :)

I should hopefully catch this one back in the air this afternoon, as today is her debut since her accident back in 2014. It'll be good to see her back.

Talking of new WW1 types, I heard recently that our TVAL Albatros is now back in New Zealand being repaired after the crash last year, and when she returns, which won't likely be too long seeing as they factory build these things, she'll be shipped over with yet another TVAL built fighter. No idea which one, but they have all sorts of interesting aircraft to I'm hoping for something not yet seen in the UK. One of their big pushers would be nice. :)

Upon further investigation of the aircraft, it's not quite as nice as I thought.  It's not a TVAL.  It was built by Charles Wille in the 1990s.  Powered by a Lycoming 0-435.  But I'm sure the Fighter Factory will work their magic and put a Rotec or possibly a rotary in it!

I heard there are a few new additions coming to the MAM this season including an SE.5a.  But everything is a rumor until it appears in a hangar...

I'm looking forward to your shots of the Triplane and whatever else comes your way!  I'd love for the MAM to get a TVAL plane.

Having had a look for the Charles Wille Triplane, she looks good to me, I look forward to seeing your images of her regardless of not being one hundred percent authentic, she's still a nice aircraft.

It would be nice if MAM could get some TVAL machines, but remember TVAL are still really in their infancy. The only reason we in the UK are lucky enough to see one or two of their machines is because TVAL have an association with the World War One Heritage Trust based at Stow Maries, and of course Shuttleworth very often benefit from them being in the UK. Hopefully one day TVAL will have made a big name for themselves and hopefully there will be hundreds of TVAL machines around the world. Hopefully if that happens MAM have their fair share. :D
