Starting and Flying an S.E. 5a

Like most “professional small boys” I love airplanes, especially the biplanes of WW1. They are just so very tactile. I can almost taste and smell what it would be like to fly one. Here’s a fine video of one of the great British fighters of WW1. Not as famous as the Sopwith Camel but similar in capabilities, especially in this version with a 200hp Hispano Suiza V8 motor.
