Hi guys While watching to first flight videos of the polikarpov replica i noticed the video for this bleriot XI replica
It has curious looking rudder but looks pretty accurate. I wonder if theres a plan to use it to celebrate the centenary of the channel crossing? I've heard of another bleriot project in the Auckland area but i don't have any information on that one. Shane
It belongs to Bob Keith (whose son flies in the Red Arrows). Its not and exact replica as it uses a vastly different construction method (Aluminium tubing, not unlike my Adventurer) compared to the original. It is in keeping with the "spirit" of the original however.
If it was supposed to be easy. everyone would be doing it...

Oh thats in the hangar next to mine. The hangar is having major modifications at the moment. Anyway, the Bleriot pictured comes out for a spin around the grass every few months but visually changes little. In fact I thought it was just a test platform for engines.
The F-18 doesn't actually climb, the earth moves away from it to escape the noise
