What's with the UK based Bristol Scout on the flyer? The 2016 Open Day had the NZ Warbirds Ardmore local BE2e-1 ZK-VCM on it...
Yes Johnnyfalcon you are correct that is our Bristol Scout 1264 flying high on the poster, we guess they just wanted a generic photograph of a Bristol Scout flying and seeing as we have the only airworthy Rotary engine scout then of course they will have chosen it. We just wish we were also there with you!
You can find out lots of information about our rebuilding grandads aircraft from original parts at Facebook: @bristol Scout Twitter: @scoutbuilder and our blog at www.bristolscout.wordpress.com
We do have links with NZ due to our 80hp Le Rhone being supplied by TVAL
But at least you can see us flying here! Just listen to that wonderful engine! If the technology doesn't work for video just let me know!

Aye, but emphasis was on 'rotary' we are looking forward to seeing pictures and footage from the show! It should be a great event. Who knows you could one day have 2 Bristol Scouts flying over there - now that would be fun...
