Spad XIII - World War I Biplane

 

Replica of the Spad XIII, one of the most widely used planes in WWI, with over 8,400 built during the war.   The Société Pour L'Aviation et ses Dérivés (SPAD) developed the aircraft in 1917, modifying the earlier Spad XII with larger wings and rudder, and a larger engine.  Flown by famous American Flying Aces Eddie Rickenbacker and Frank Luke, this example is painted in the U.S. Army squadron camouflage.  Of the 893 Spad XIII's purchased by the U.S. Army during the war, nearly half were still in service in 1920.  Wonderful detailing in the finish, with laminated wood propeller, wire wheel spokes and leather accents.  An ideal gift for a vintage flight enthusiast.
