Newsletter 049: In their flying machines...

In their flying machines...

In their flying machines...
Yes, those brave heroes of the aviation jumped in their flying machines without any safety measures, not only for flying but for fighting a war. When you really think about it, one can only feel admiration for those pilots, their courage, their skill, their endurance, admiration for those fragile linen cloth and thin steel wires machines which barely had a compass and an artificial horizon.

We've just made a hole at Aeronautiko for a couple of those World War I flying machines, the Nieuport 17 and the Sopwith Camel... but we will add more soon!!!

Here at Aeronautiko, we are proud, nuts and scale modelers. And just like you... we are also crazy for those flying machines!!! :)
