Fokker Dr.I Triplane

After extensive engine work and other tweaking, the Triplane flew again in September 2012. Ron Marcotte got a nice video of the Fokker flight.

We fired up the Triplane and Canuck for a visit of the League of WWI Aircraft Historians! They took a video, which can be seen on their website at

Why not land your Fokker Triplane in a crosswind? Well, this could have been worse, but it shows does show why!

Vehicle parade : At the 2011 AirFair

Team Vehicles : A typical working day for the team dedicated to restoring the museum's model Ts:

Team Vehicles Keeps 'em Rolling : Supposedly shot using old film and a hand crank camera found in the hangar—but not really.

A 1921 Triumph Motorcycle : An early 2009 addition to the Museum's vehicle collection. Video taken on a rainy day, so lots of background noise.

The 1921 Triumph motorcycle is finally moving under its own power. Note that it doubles as a portable smoke screen!
