29-1/2" World War I Sopwith Camel
The Sopwith Camel bi-plane was responsible for more aerial victories than any other Allied airplane during WWI. Called the camel because of the hump over the twin machine guns, it was credited with shooting down 1,294 enemy aircraft. Due to a small 28 feet wingspan, this famous flying machine was also credited with almost 400 non-combat deaths. Inexperienced pilots had to quickly master the technique of low speed take-offs and landings in order to avoid the consequences of flipping the plane. Although the Sopwith Camel was a difficult plane to fly, its fantastic agility made it very popular with experienced and talented fighter pilots. Measures 29-1/2" wing tip to wing tip, 23-1/4" front to back and 9-1/4" high.
