World War One 'The Great War'

Howdy,
I was able to attend this month's November 3rd, Living History Day, Planes of Fame, Chino, California. The WWI aircraft on display did not fly. However, a B-25 took raffle winners for a flight.

Their Hanriot HD.1 an original WWI owned by Charles Nungesser French Ace was on display where visitors could walk up for a close look.

Jonathan Markley, Associate Professor of History at California State University, Fullerton. spoke about his grandfather, Corporal R. Bruce Fowler of the New Zealand Army, who served in Egypt, England, and France during WWI; suffering a face wound he benefited from the Queen Mary's Hospital Sidcup development of plastic surgery.

BRIGADIER GENERAL R. G. HEAD
His most recent publication is the biography, Oswald Boelcke:*Germany’s First Fighter Ace and Father of Air Combat. Interesting discussion of how highly Boelcke was respected by both friends and enemy.

Not including the Hanriot, those look like the same WW1 planes that were up here at a local Air Show this year.
They flew.
In fact, we had three of them, a Camel, a Fokker, and a french one.
They performed simulated dog fights.
It was very cool.

Got any more photos? great stuff!

those aren't the same planes?

at first I thought they were reduced scale, but apparently they are 1:1.

sorry to sidetrack Bob.
