About This File

FSX Sopwith Triplane Prototype Replica. The Sopwith Triplane was a British single seat fighter aircraft designed and manufactured by the Sopwith Aviation Company during the First World War. Pilots nicknamed it the Tripehound or simply the Tripe. The Triplane became operational with the Royal Naval Air Service in early 1917 and was immediately successful. Sopwith's prototype for the Triplane was "N500", first flown on 28, May 1916 with Sopwith test pilot Harry Hawker at the controls. In June of that year, it was delivered to 'A' Squadron, First Navy Air Wing in Dunkirk for combat evaluation, reputedly sent on a combat mission 15 minutes after arrival. In the collection of the "The Great War Display Team," is a replica built over a three year period by Ernie Hoblyn. It first flew in 1997 and is currently owned by Gordon Brander. This texture file represents that replica. Model by Yiannis Katehis Tsetsas. Repaint by Mark Powell.
