1920 Sopwith Dove (replica)

This exhibit

This aeroplane is a faithful replica, built by Skysport Engineering, and is owned by the Woods brothers by whom it is loaned to the Collection. Its registration was originally allocated to a Dove which was sold abroad in May 1919.

The Dove was first based at Old Warden in the late 1990s but in July 2000 nosed over when the wheels collapsed during a landing, damaging the undercarriage and destroying the propeller. After lengthy repairs the machine returned to Old Warden in May 2015.
