ANZAC WW1 Airshow at Masterton : Sopwith Triplane

The next aircraft was the Sopwith Triplane. This is a replica of the original [as distinct from TVAL's reproduction aircraft], as according to the TVAL website, there were a number of changes from the original, including "simplified construction techniques. Some of the modifications included a steel tube fuselage, modern engine, and simplified wing construction". Still, I guess you wouldn't really know it just be looking at the exterior.
