Cheap Fokker......

Article about: A mid life crisismobile has engine failure, it trundles to a stop by the roadside-a light aircraft on the other hand...

    Default Cheap Fokker......

    Take a look at this superb Fokker E III Eindecker scale flying replica, it's great!

    Seems the chap built it for around 12,000 which is a fantastic price for something that would blow a similar priced mid life crisis MGB into the weeds. It also comes under the classification of being a microlight, thereby bypassing a lot of the hassle of costs and training that a light aircraft requires....I want one!

    I would love one too. Living on the Isle of Sheppy it wouldn't look out of place either as the isle has a long history of aviation development in England and in July 1909 the Short Brothers established Shellbeach Aerodrome on nearby marshland to accommodate six Wright Flyers.
