Aviodrome. This aircraft was designed by the Dutchman Frederick Koolhoven for the British BAT company in 1918. It had the best fighter performance of its time (post WWI). When the BAT company closed down in 1920 the aircraft was bought up by a trader in second hand aircraft and parts. In 1953 the remains were stored in a barn for many years. In 1991 restoration started and it took 12 years to restore the aircraft for static display. It is the only original surviving Koolhoven aircraft. [Canon 40D + 10-22]
