Billy Bishop SE5A


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Does anyone know or have information on Billy Bishops SE5A. As most of you know there always is some disagreement when it comes to actual WW1 aircraft colour schemes. Any help would be great. I have seen some with a blue nose and tail and some with just an "X" on the fuse......


Thanks!
Scott

Re: Billy Bishop SE5A

I do have some books on the SE5A, will have to dig them out, and do a bit of a read. I do have a large number of photos, somewhere, of the replica Bishop SE5A hanging in the Ottawa War Museum, somewhere on my HD. Will dig out what I can find, and can email stuff to you. Any good pics/info in any of my books, I can simply scan and send.

Re: Billy Bishop SE5A

Thanks Todd! The information you have given me will help for sure. I really think the blue on the nose and tail stand out.

Check out www.thevintageaviator.com, they did a brand new build of an SE5A, flying, and have an amazing walkaround photo spread.
