"A PROJECT to build an aircraft known as one of the great unsung heroes of the First World War - nearly 100 years after the last one was manufactured - reached a milestone following a test assembly at the National Museum of Flight at East Fortune.
The Aviation Preservation Society of Scotland (APSS) project to build - using the original plans and, as far as possible, original techniques and materials - a new Sopwith 1½ Strutter took a significant step when the completed wings, fuselage and tail were mated together in a test assembly at the National Museum of Flight last month."
