Details

This heavily illustrated talk tells the extraordinary story of the Sopwith Aviation Company in Kingston upon Thames who designed many of the most important fighter aircraft in the Great War and the entrepreneurial Whitehead Aircraft Company in the centre of Richmond.

Sopwith built over 3,000 aircraft including the famous Sopwith Camels but demand was so high that another 15,000 of their machines were built all over the country, many by Whitehead.
