    The Duxford Air Show: Meet the Fighters

    IWM Duxford, Cambridgeshire, CB22 4QR

    http://www.iwm.org.uk/duxford

    Experience the speed, power and agility of historic and contemporary fighter aircraft as they dominate the skies over IWM Duxford at The Duxford Air Show.

    In commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the formation of RAF Fighter Command, the air show highlights Duxford’s role as a wartime fighter station, looks at how the nation has been defended from air attack, and shows the vital importance of fighters to winning control of the largest battlefront on earth. Examples of these famous aircraft from past and present will fly in partnership, as we compare and contrast their enduring skills and abilities, and look at what it takes to be a fighter pilot.

    STOP PRESS: Visitors to IWM Duxford this summer will have the chance to see a rare First World War Sopwith Pup aircraft, which is currently on display in the Air and Sea exhibition.

    The aircraft is being operated by the Historic Aircraft Collection and has been painstakingly reconstructed over the past four years. It has been rebuilt using many original First World War component parts, including an original engine. The attention to detail is remarkable; the aircraft is once again perfect in every detail.

    Sopwith Pup N6161 was built at Kingston-on-Thames, fitted with an 80 horse power Le Rhone engine and delivered to St Pol in France on 25 January 1917. Pilot Titch Rochford, test flying the aircraft on 29 January 1917, recorded it as "very easy to loop. Comes over much easier than a Bristol Scout."

    The Pup was allocated to No.9 Squadron on 1 February 1917, the day that the squadron was formed. That morning the aircraft was flown by George Elliott, who had just arrived in France and was on his first mission. His was one of two Pups escorting two Sopwith 1 ½ Strutters on a photo-reconnaissance flight over Bruges.

    At 12,500 feet they were intercepted by two Rumpler float planes flown by German pilots Carl Meyer and Bernd Niemeyer. Carl Meyer, who was a very experienced pilot with four combat successes, managed to force George Elliott down to land on the beach in Bredene. Sopwith Pup N6161 was captured intact and Elliott survived as a Prisoner of War. It is said that Meyer wrote to Elliott in the Prisoner of War camps.

    Sopwith Pup N6161 was then flown to Nieumunster, where it was photographed in its British markings and then repaired and test flown in German markings. It seems to have suffered a taxiing or landing accident and was photographed on its nose some time later.

    These remaining original N6161 parts have been incorporated, alongside other original Sopwith factory and period Sopwith Pup components, in the reconstruction of N6161, which was undertaken by Retrotec, the restoration arm of the Historic Aircraft Collection Ltd. The aircraft will remain in the Air and Sea exhibition until the autumn. It will return to the skies very shortly with its first public display penciled in for The Duxford Air Show: Meet the Fighters (Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September). It will be flown in its original British markings initially, but later on it is planned to paint it in the German markings.
