Fake dogfighting fun.

Some lovely sounds in this video...the dive whistle was especially nice. I was surprised at how much the camel pilot blip'd the throttle, sounded like the motor was in distress most of the time.

Great fun, we had several WW1 replicas at Booker and were lucky enough to display 3 of them at Farnborough in the late 90s. Back gate passses to the airshow and able to get up close and personal with all the aircraft as we had access all areas passes!  More recently there are always a smattering of WW1 displays at the Shoreham Air Show, (or at least there were until some silly sod planted a Hunter there a couple of years ago!)

The Camels engine sounded very rough. Great video. 

 

There is a replica Sopworth Camel at Brooklands Museum, every now and then they wheel it out of the hanger and do an engine run. Dont stand behind it as the propwash is laden with castor oil!
