I may have mentioned before that I'm a real fan of vintage aircraft. It's very rare to see these old biplanes fly, but every so often they drag them out of the museum at the Shuttleworth Collection, and put them in the air. It's even rarer to see a triplane in the air. This is a Sopwith Triplane, the only one anywhere in the world.
Wow. What an evocative silhouette.
And that's not all. Check this out.
If it looks like something out of Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines, that's because it is. It's a Bristol Box Kite, and in the movie, it was The Phoenix Flyer, piloted by Stuart Whitman. It's not often you get to see something like this pottering about.
