Time for the airshow and car show season. Here is my 26 Tudor with a Sopwith Tri-plane a few years ago. The fun of the plane is when I get to start it. That means I get to hand-prop it. It's not as easy as doing it with a Taylorcraft or J-3 cub. When it starts it's at full throttle !(It's safer to crank start a T !)
Does the Sopwith have a Le Rhone?
Yes, 90 hp.
Very cool that you get to be around a working LeRhone. "Anything rotary powered" is definitely near the top of my bucket list of airplanes to fly.
If it has a Le Rhone, then it should have a live Vickers as well
Lost a wing, went from Tri-plane to Bi-plane but a flight in these beautiful old Tiger Moths finished what was a memorable days touring in in two 1916 T's.
