The Great War Display Team

Availability: In stock

Author: Ernie Hoblyn, Foreword by Bruce Dickinson

The Great War Display Team was founded in 1988 and has since gone on to become one of Britain’s premier display teams, with a wealth of talented pilots passing through its ranks and amazing crowds with a variety of recreated aircraft including Fokker Dr1s, Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5s, a Sopwith Triplane and an Avro 504.

Having built a replica Sopwith Triplane and flown it for more than a decade as part of the team, taking part in choreographed dog fight routines, Ernie Hoblyn is uniquely positioned to offer a fascinating insight into the construction of these aircraft and the realities of flying in the First World War – including the vast differences between the handling of modern aircraft and that of machines used during the war.

With unprecedented access and a range of interesting photography, this is a fascinating look at what it takes to construct, pilot and display a vintage flying machine.
