If you’re looking for an exquisite Fokker D8, we know where there’s one available. A project to build an authentic replica of a World War One Fokker D8 begun by Neil Good in Rhinebeck, New York in the 1970s has recently been completed, and is being offered for sale. The project was finished by noted World War One aircraft builder Fred Murrin in Pennsylvania for New York aviation enthusiast Brian Caughlin. It is thought to be the most authentic representation of the fighter in the United States. Flight testing continues on the Gulfstream G500 as it is reported Gulfstream has completed flutter testing, achieving another milestone in the new aircraft’s flight-test program. Since the first test aircraft took its first flight on May 18, 2015, the aircraft has surpassed more than 320 flight hours.
