WW I Aero­planes

Flight Journal - - AIRDROP -

I know FJ doesn’t spend much time on WW I air­planes, but as a mod­eler, I love them. Can you do more ar­ti­cles on them? Also, I’ve heard they’re hard to fly. Are they? Char­lie Bren­nard, Tulsa, Ok­la­homa

I’ve flown a Nieu­port 11 with a ro­tary en­gine, a DR.1 with a Warner ra­dial, and a Jenny with an OX-5. I’d use the word “dif­fer­ent” (very dif­fer­ent) more than “hard.” The ro­tary def­i­nitely gets your at­ten­tion. But that’s all they knew back in the day.—BD
