WW1 AHT – Flying the Sopwith Snipe

WW1 AHT – Flying the Sopwith Snipe

£5.00

The Sopwith Snipe arrived in service in 1918.  Powered by the BR2a rotary engine regarded as the ultimate achievement of W O Bentley, it was an exciting aeroplane to fly with a max speed of 130 mph and could climb to 15000ft in 12 minutes.  Find out what it was like to fly with the rotating mass of the engine acting gyroscopically requiring all sorts of control inputs to achieve the desired result.  Jean Munn was the only pilot to fly our Snipe and was very sad to see it return to NZ in 2018. Join him and the other WW1 AHT pilots to learn about this challenging aeroplane.  Stu Goldspink will assist JM by describing the Snipe’s predecessor – the notorious Sopwith Camel. Join them Thur 25th Mar 8 pm
