Good film.

Most of this work concerned Int.Movie Aircraft Data Base rather than IMCDB ... but I won't complain ;)

A Lockheed 8C Sirius, as far as I can see.


Most, if not all, planes used in this film were either replicas or modifications using existing planes.

It is a Standard J-1.

A Curtiss JN-4 'Jenny'.

For the crash scenes a modified de Havilland DH 82A Tiger Moth replaced the Curtiss.

It is a Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister with an engine modification, probably a Lycoming. The original radial engine would have looked better for a film playing in the 1920s.

Here the Standard and the Curtiss fly in formation. Nice to see how similar they are.

It is a modified de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk, first flown in 1946.

You are right, a replica of a Sopwith F.1 Camel. Seven originals have survived until today, none airworthy.

Indeed a replica of the Fokker Dr. I Dreidecker. No original has survived.

Seeing that emoticon, sixcyl, I thought it was another of You-Know-Who's posts. In this case, however, the praise is well deserved!

I think there was a Faller model of the Fokker driedekker (or was it really Dreidecker? Fokker was Dutch, but he left for Germany...?).
