A photograph from my trip down the flying legends air show at Duxford last week. Two world war 1 aircraft displaying a typical dog fight situation. The British aircraft is a Sopwith triplane and the German aircraft is a Fokker Dr1 1.

Hi Connor.
Are these full size replicas chasing one another?
The reason that I ask is that the Fokker looks very large by comparison to the Sopwith. I'd have expected it to be considerably smaller, particularly as it's farther away.

Not 100% sure I think they are 80% replica's. Thanks for the comments.

Perhaps a 'trick' of perspective in the layout of the photo - having seen the original series I can confirm that this is how the a/c were. The Dr1 was built to the Sands/Redfern plans which are full scale (wingspan 23.5 ft) and the Sopwith built to the original drawings at a span of 26.5ft. Looks a bit odd, I know, but the camera never lies (much). Thanks for all your help with my buggy at Duxford Connor - much appreciated.

Not a bad pic- but a better title!

Hi Pat and thanks. (Trust you're well?)

The only reason that I asked was that the DR1 was such a tiny thing by comparison to just about everything else in the sky at that time.
I think that, as much as anything, I expected it to appear smaller.
