French Spad XIII - World War I Biplane

Replica of the French built 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 French Flying Aces Georges Guynemer and Rene Fonck, and also by Italian Ace Francesco Baracca, this example was nicknamed "Vieux Charles".  Wonderful detailing in the finish, with laminated wood propeller, wire wheel spokes and leather accents.  An ideal gift for a vintage flight enthusiast.
