    Very nice.

    I would point out that though it is indeed a XIIa (Canadian built) it is impersonating a famous Gloster built IIB as it flies today.

    Cheers

    Nice. Another reason why this particular aircraft was chosen is because the codes 'HA-C' are the initials of the owner/operator if the aircraft; the Historic Aircraft Corporation Ltd. It used to wear 71 (Eagle) Sqn markings for many years prior to its repaint.
