Sopwith Strutter Flight August 2015

Back in August me and my Dad were able to take a ride on a replica WW1 biplane based out of the Brampton Airport. It is difficult to describe how awesome it was so here are some of the pictures I managed to get from the day. During my flight I was lucky to have a RAF SE5a as an escort, the camera doesn’t quite capture how close the plane seemed to be. I would recommend it to anyone. It just seemed so surreal and like no other flight I have ever taken.

About jskuchta

I am just a guy who loves to explore the natural world. I love to hike and to take pictures of anything I find along the way from the smallest insect to the wide panorama of the sea. I am currently based in Toronto, Ontario but I like to travel everywhere I can. Here shall be a place for some of the things I find.

    Wow! That’s amazing! I didn’t know they had flights like those. Was the flight mostly around Brampton? It just looks more rural than I expected. Beautiful pictures! 🙂

      Thanks! Yes indeed, just around the Brampton Airport, which is a little ways outside the city. I don’t think they are allowed to fly over the city, apparently since these planes were built by hand by volunteers and obviously don’t conform to modern safety standards they need to be classified as experimental. The plane I am in is only 1 of 3 of that model aircraft still flying, but this is the only one that takes passengers even though they don’t advertise it.

        Neat! I guess that does make sense that they wouldn’t be allowed over the city. Sounds like a pretty amazing experience! 🙂
