Sopwith Camel (replica)

ZK JMU as B3889


Taken at the Classic Fighters Airshow. April 14, 2001. Gene de Marco waves to the crowd as he taxies back in a very different looking Camel. Part of the cowling can be seen caught in the flying wires to port, and the remaining Vickers gun barrel stands straight up above the now exposed Gnome rotary engine.
