Formed in 1988 the team were originally called The Wombats. A team with an ad hoc collection of aircraft including five SE5as, two Fokker Dr1s and a Fokker D7, many of them flown by their builders. The Team currently has five different types of aircraft available to fly, with nine in total. At Airbourne this year you can see this spectacular nine aircraft dogfight routine, a spectacle which makes it’s first appearance at Eastbourne. Avro 504 The Avro 504 makes its debut with the team in 2016. This beautiful Avro 504 replica was built under licence in Argentina from original plans. Sopwith Triplane The team’s Sopwith Triplane is a replica of N500, the first Triplane prototype which first flew in June 1916 with the Royal Naval Air Service. Fokker Dr1 Triplane The Dr1 was a direct attempt to copy the successful Sopwith Triplane. Armed with two forward firing Spandau machine guns, it was highly manoeuvrable, and was a favourite mount of a number of German aces such as Werner Voss and the legendary Manfred von Richthofen. Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c The BE2c was designed and built in 1912 and was Britain’s first-ever military aeroplane. This aircraft is a replica BE-2c commissioned in 1969 by the makers of the film ‘Biggles Sweeps the Skies’! Royal Aircraft Factory SE5a The RAF SE5, originally with a 150HP direct-drive Hispano-Suiza engine, first flew in November 1916. There are three SE5as in the Team, built from replica plans. Junkers CL1 The Junkers CL1 was a ground-attack aircraft with an extended fuselage to carry a gunner, first flying in 1917. The only two-seaters in the team and one of the occupants is a dummy!
