    Thanks for looking at my images as I randomly hog this section with yet more walkarounds of old airframes.

    The next instalment is from a recent photo shoot at the excellent Aviation Heritage Centre at Omaka; home to some of The Vintage Aviator's non flying reproduction aircraft, including this cleverly weathered R.E.8.

    I have also included images of the Imperial War Museum's original R.E.8 F3556.

    More here: warbirds

    I'll be adding more from the AHC soon, including a reproduction flying Halberstadt D IV - a rarity of a rarity.

    Beauty. The only reason I know of this aircraft is because the main character in a series of books I read flew one when he was a flight instructor during WWI
