Bob Thomson of APSS (Aviation Preservation Society, Scotland) described the recreation of a 100+ year old plane design: The Sopwith Strutter 1 1/2. The Strutter came before the more famous Sopwith Camel and had a close relationship with this part of the world.

Bob talked about the plane and how it was recreated and the obvious issues that face building a 100 year old design with particular attention being applied to the electrical issues along with how radio was incorporated into the reconstruction.

After his talk, Bob was presented with a donation from the LRS to the APSS preservation fund.

Many thanks to Bob for a most interesting talk and for allowing us to show his slides on the website.
