Pilot builds his own replica WW1 plane in his garden
Brit Mike Clark has made a World War 1 fighter plane -- as well as building a RUNWAY in his back garden to fly it from. The 62-year-old commercial airline pilot, who lives near Horsham in West Sussex, is the proud owner of a Fokker Eindecker. The single-seater monoplane, designed by Dutch aviation pioneer Anthony Fokker, was the first purpose-built German fighter aircraft. It was also the first plane to be fitted with a synchronisation gear, allowing the pilot to fire a machine gun through the arc of the propeller without striking the blades. The replica Eindecker took Clark 18 months to build and made its maiden flight in June 2012. In a bid for historical authenticity, Clark borrowed both the colour scheme and registration number of German flying ace Ernst Udet, the top-scoring surviving WWI flying ace.
