A “full-scale, light sport experimental” Sopwith Camel has been spotted for sale. The listing states (in part):
This is a full scale Sopwith Camel built from an Airdrome Airplanes quick build kit. It has the chromoly tube frame for the fuselage. The kit was built according to the plans and recommendations and is fitted with a Lycoming 290 and Culver prop. The aircraft has a current N number and was well documented during the build. It has working control surfaces, has all gauges and seat installed. The aircraft needs finishing with weight and balance, wiring, plumbing, mags, battery, etc. The aircraft was trailered and shown at Oshkosh in 2018 with the WWI airplanes. The aircraft was built with the intention of flying, however the educational program’s aerospace engineering classes didn’t have continued support after the first year. Therefore the aircraft is for sale. Would consider selling airframe separate from the engine… Meets requirements for light sport experimental.
The machine is located in Perrysburg, Ohio and is currently being offered for US $25,000, although offers are also being accepted. Click here to check out the listing.
