Stow Maries Aerodrome to Receive Sopwith Camel - 23/04/2009

Stow Maries Aerodrome is to be the home of what is believed to be the sole flying Sopwith Camel F1 First World War Fighter in the country.
 
Sopwith CamelOwners Russell Savory and Steve Wilson were delighted to receive the offer of this historic aircraft, to be housed at the aerodrome. They have accepted the offer with open arms. It is hoped it will be the first aircraft to arrive on site later this year and will be a major attraction to enthusiasts and general visitors alike.
 
It will bear the colours and markings of Lieutenant Hollington who was stationed at Stow Maries flying a Sopwith Camel in 1918.
 
The Sopwith Fighter became a legend during World War One, receiving the official credit for downing the 'Red Baron' Manfred Von Richthofen.
 
This aircraft will be the first in a series of period aircraft that will be resident at Stow Maries making the site a top visitor attraction for Maldon District. It is hoped this will bring the region to the forefront of the tourism market.
